VIDEO GAMES: DEAD SPACE Developer Working On Next-Gen STAR WARS Title
There's very few details available as of yet, but EA (who acquired the exclusive licensing rights for Star Wars earlier this month) are now moving ahead with plans for a video game from Dead Space developers Visceral as indicated by a listing for a senior designer.
EA confirmed earlier this month that they had acquired the exclusive licensing rights to develop Star Wars video games for Disney and Lucasfilm, and at the time, they said that Visceral and Battlefield: Bad Company studio DICE would be developing them. However, a listing for a senior designer has now confirmed that the Dead Space team are already hard at work. They specify that the person they're looking for will, "help lead the design and guide a pre-vis team currently in concept phase on a Next-Gen Star Wars title," and refer to, "laying out combat spaces." That's all we know as of right now, but this does confirm that the title will be released on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One next-gen systems. EA previously said that these games would not ship before April 2014, but more details are set to be revealed at this year's E3. Stay tuned to CBM for further details!
