A job listing for Spark Unlimited as well as a resume posted on LinkedIn have caused Battlefront 3 development rumors to resurface.
According to information posted on PlayStation Lifestyle, Spark is currently looking for a “senior combat designer for a 3rd Person Action/Adventure sequel in a high-profile science fiction franchise currently greenlit for full production development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC markets.”
Then, sumitted for your approval are links to two LinkedIn resumes: one from a former senior software engineer who said he worked on an “unannounced third person sword fighting game (well known IP, Xbox 360, PS3)”, and another from a senior AI programmer who cited work on a “AAA third person shooter using Unreal Engine and Kynapse AI middleware.”
Spark has pretty much stayed mum on the title in the works at the studio, stating earlier this week it was “working on a sequel for a well known sci-fi franchise,” and because of this, “all aspects must remain secret.”
“You want word on SWBF3, you should contact Lucasarts,” said another tweet. “I know I can speak more when the publisher speaks more.”
However, a tweet last year from the firm had a strong Star War reference in that it said the following pertaining to the secret project in the works for 2012: “Publisher hasn’t stated when or where the announcement will take place. The time and place could be close or far, far away.”
There are a gazillion tweets on the matter through the official Spark Unlimited Twitter account. Go through them and glean from it what you will.
Currently, the firm has two unannounced project in the works.
