Job Advert At EA Reveals Star Wars Open World Game In The Works

Fancy playing an open world AAA Star Wars video game in the same style as Mass Effect or Fallout 4?  Imagine how awesome that would be?  Well, that might just be what's in the works at EA.  We know this due to a recently discovered job advert on their website.  The job listing, discovered by GameSpot opens with the words "Lead a team to deliver Online features for a Star Wars Open World project."

EA own the rights to Star Wars at this time and their recent track record hasn't done themselves any favours with gamers.  Star Wars Battlefront II was weighed down with micro transactions which were not just cosmetic but important for progression in the game.  Past Star Wars games have also been announced only to be cancelled months later.  For those two reasons I'm not going to get too excited over this recent news.  I don't want to see my heart broken, not again.  Not after Lucasarts' 1313.  I can't go through that kind of break up again.
