They're looking for a 'Senior Gameplay Engineer' for an "Aerial Combat Title" in the works in San Francisco, with knowledge of "space-based shooters" a plus.
Already LucasArts have revealed they've got a secret open-world roleplaying game being developed thanks to other recruitment ads zipping around the Internet. The Star Wars X-Wing series is a much beloved franchise spin-off.
"Experience with flight sims, aerial shooters, and especially space-based shooters a plus", the job position on the official Lucasfilm website. The only other Star Wars title that could be in the mix involving a lot of aerial combat would be the Battlefront series.
Do we dare hope for Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter to return?
