Published on Aug 23, 2011
LucasArts is has action/adventure, first-person shooter, aerial combat and open-world RPG games in development at its San Francisco offices according to a series of new job listings on the studio's recruitment page.
The FPS listings are for a Gameplay Engineer, Level Designer and Rendering Engineer.
The Gameplay Engineer mentions in the requirements that experience with open-world RPGs would be a plus, suggesting crossover with another of the projects, but the latter two positions state "experience with first-person shooters is a plus".
Platforms aren't specified, but consoles are mentioned.
Meanwhile the aerial-combat project specifies that candidates (Senior Gameplay Engineer, Lead Designer) have "experience with flight sims, aerial shooters, and especially space-based shooters," suggesting something sci-fi based.
If only LucasArts had an IP that fits such a description.
LucasArts is also on the look out for an Environment Artist for an Action/Adventure ("experience with cinematic action adventures is a plus") and a Gameplay Engineer for an Open-World RPG.
Will X-Wing, Star Wars: Battlefront or Star Wars: The Force Unleashed be returning?
