A recently discovered Job Listing has revealed that EA has not scrubbed the development of the Open World version of Star Wars despite the closure of Visceral Studios. Gamespot who first discovered the listing states in one of their articles that EA is looking for "the position of a lead online engineer at EA's Vancouver studio". The Job Listing has already been taken down at the moment but Gamespot was able to get some of the detail and requirement pertaining to the position. It states that the company needs someone to "Lead a team to deliver Online features for a Star Wars Open World project," and must have an "experience implementing Online features such as Matchmaking, Asynchronous interactions, Live services, Server-host migration, etc."
From the looks of the information provided, it looks like the open world project may be very well on its way and may still include microtransactions. Another thing is that this could probably include a Battle Royale mode to go with the current trend, but these are all just assumptions. Let's just hope that this version of Star Wars will finally be free from the previous controversies experienced by the previous installments. Stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
