If this article is anything to go by then perhaps all my gamer wet dreams are coming true. 

 

http://geeknation.co...star-wars-game/

Visceral posted an ad for staff to work on this upcoming project.. so who know when it may be coming but I cant ****ing wait. 

 

I would really love BioWare to be involved in this.. but who knows. Heres hoping. The whole time I was playing Dragon Age Inquisition I was wishing it was Star Wars, as it felt A LOT like KOTOR. 

 

Please gods let this be true. 

 

 

EDIT: I have no idea where I pulled the BioWare bit from.. probably cause they are published often by EA. But the Visceral part is legit.

If I could get a Mass Effect style RPG experience in a Battlefront action engine set in the Star wars universe I'd die happy.

As for the when, I'd be shocked if it didn't accompany the release of one of the confirmed movies.

I thought three developers got a licence to do a SW game - Dice, Bioware and Visceral - might be where you are remembering Bioware from?

EA got the Star Wars license.   Dice, Bioware and Visceral are all owned by EA.  The more exciting part about this is that they got Amy Hennig to head this game up.  Now you probably don't know who that is, but she is the creator of Uncharted and wrote the first 3 games in that series.    The games are fantastic, so if she is leading this team, then it's in great hands.

Sweet.

The other theory is this game is the one they started after 1313 got cancelled. So it could be an action adventure style one, more in the line of uncharted.

Still good news!

I can't decide what would be better - Mass Effect style with squadmates and a more linear main story that encourages most side quests to be completed first, or more like Skyrim/Oblivion where you are on your own with optional companions and a main quest and side quests that are independent of one another and are able to be completed in any order.

Or maybe a mix of the two?

A really solid narrative is essential. One that propels the story forward, but also allows and even encourages exploration and side questing, not unlike ME2 or Witcher Wild Hunt would be ace IMO.

Which of those two are closer to Fable? Because I've loved the **** out of that one.

Totally.

I'd like the Skyrim model, because even though there is that Bioware connection between KOTOR and Mass Effect (which I also like, BTW), I like the idea of things being a little more free roaming and it doesn't matter what order you complete the quest.  But I also like how your choices in Mass Effect affect the outcome not just in that game, but also the sequels.  So yeah, mix of the two.
