Electronic Arts' Motive studio is fresh off one Star Wars project, with the recently released Star Wars: Squadrons. A recent job listing indicated more could be on the way, but today, Motive is saying that was an error.
A recent job listing on the Motive Montreal site called for a programmer to work on an upcoming Star Wars action game, per GamesRadar. Motive tweeted today, saying that specifying the Star Wars property was an error.
"Due to human error (hey it happens!) we've seen a lot of speculation," reads the tweet. "While we're not working on a new Star Wars project, we are working on something pretty special."
As for what that could be, Motive has already said it's working on several unannounced projects following the launch of Star Wars: Squadrons. The studio had low output over the last few years, but it looks like the launch of the space dogfighting sim has shifted things back into gear in Montreal.
What would be interesting is whether Motive is rethinking its stance on DLC for Squadrons. The studio made a point of Squadrons being one package and not leaving much wiggle room for post-launch DLC. Our impressions of Star Wars: Squadrons were warm at launch, though in the weeks since, they've cooled as flying X-Wings and TIE Fighters has only taken the sim so far.
Whatever something "special" might be, it'll be interesting to see what Motive cooks up next. Star Wars: Squadrons could very well be a launching pad for the studio, and as it gears up for several different projects, the possibilities are exciting even if they're not Star Wars-related.
