Rumours are fast spreading that a games developer in Southern California going by the name of ‘Spark Unlimited’ could be aking the next Battlefront game. Although it’s difficult to say for sure, there sure are some big hints that the game could be the critically acclaimed Star Wars shooter.
The company are currently hiring several places under the description of engineers for “a 3rd Person Action/Adventure sequel in a high-profile science fiction franchise,” and “a bold new take on 3rd Person Action/Horror.” While the ‘horror’ part of that is questionable, this does quite sound like Star Wars Battlefront to me. Employees already working with the developer have experience with both ‘shooter’ and ‘sword-fighting’ games – does anyone remember cutting down battle-droids as Mace Windu in Battlefront?
Even if it wasn’t for Battlefront (though we can pray) they could well be developing a game for another Star Wars game. Presently the developer is keeping quiet, though due to the hype around this mystery project, they may come out with an announcement soon.
