The job ad, which is for a Senior Core Engineer, states that the candidate “will be the engine level specialist responsible for implementing cutting edge features and optimizations on current and Future Generation console and PC hardware,” adding that they’ll “provide technical expertise to develop high-performance game engine technology.”
The title of the ad reveals that the team is working on an “FPS Title”.
Previous job ads have already revealed that LucasArts is working on a next-generation title. However, this is the first time that an FPS has been suggested.
LucasArts hasn’t released a first-person shooter since 2005′s Star Wars: Republic Commando, a tactical shooter which launched to widespread critical acclaim.
Other first-person shooters developed by the firm include Star Wars: Dark Forces, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces, and Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.
Could a Jedi Knight revival be on the cards?
