Electronic Arts is Apparently Hiring for a New Star Wars Game

Posted by March 23, 2018 Comment

If you thought royally screwing up one of the most anticipated Star Wars games in history and earning the outrage of millions over loot boxes and microtransactions would kick Electronic Arts out of the Star Wars circle, you are gravely mistaken. The company proved today that they’re still locked into a contract to produce Star Wars games with this job listing for a Lead Online Engineer, showing that they are looking for someone to help develop an open world title within the Star Wars universe.

Lead a team to deliver Online features for a Star Wars Open World project. You will design, architect and implement the Online infrastructure for the project while working with industry-leading central technologies. You will lead a team of Engineers to accomplish the goals for the product as well as be an effective people manager to grow the talent on the team. You will report to the project Technical Director and ensure that the Online systems are meeting the robustness and performance requirements.

If you feel like you fit the requirements, feel free to apply. But keep in mind this job is in EA Vancouver, which is where all the Star Wars titles are now being produced after the company shut the doors on Visceral Games back in October. How do you feel about EA making another Star Wars game?
