This is the perfect time to be hearing about an open world Star Wars RPG, just as Star Wars: The Force Awakens broken single-day box office records. Rumor has it EA is working with Visceral Games on an open world Star Wars RPG thanks to a new job description picked up by Geeknation.


The job listing asks: "Bring your system game design skills and savvy and your love of star wars to visceral games, embracing and contributing to the project vision in areas of hero control/mechanics, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, enemy design, story and boss encounters.". We don't know anything other than what the job listing asks for, but we can imagine that an open world RPG set in the Star Wars universe is quite exciting. But then we have to remember the EA DICE made first-person shooter, Star Wars Battlefront, didn't fare so well.

Visceral Games' last title released was the luke-warm, semi-failure Battlefield: Hardline. Putting trust into Visceral is a bit touchy, but they do have the great Dead Space franchise under their belt.
