A job has popped up over at EA for a lead online engineer to deliver "online features for a Star Wars open world project".

At the risk of stating the obvious, that seems to suggest that an open world Star Wars project with online features is in development at EA.

Whatever this game is, it’s in the works at EA’s Vancouver studio.

EA has tried to get several Star Wars projects off the ground in recent years, including bounty hunter tale Star Wars 1313, Visceral Games’s single player Star Wars title, and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Titanfall developer and EA subsidiary Respawn is also working on a third-person action-adventure game set in the Star Wars universe, and of course, BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic is still a thing (and by all accounts is really good, even solo).
