BioWare Austin Working on “Several” Unannounced Games

on January 15, 2014 1:36 AM

Looks like the cogs are in motion at Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s studio BioWare Austin, as showcased by quite a few job opportunity ads published by Electronic Arts, all including the same introduction, like this one for a Senior Software Engineer (discovered by NeoGaf user Nirolak).

BioWare Austin is home to the critically acclaimed and award winning Star Wars®: The Old Republic™ MMO. After the hugely successful addition of its Free 2 Play option and the highly praised launch of space PVP with the Galactic Starfighter expansion, the Austin team continues driving forward with SW:TOR and is also hard at work on several unannounced projects. Apply today and learn about the exciting opportunities at our Studio. It’s an amazing time to come and work with us!

Unfortunately the posts don’t give many solid hint as to what those “several projects” entail, but at leas one may be a MMORPG or an action game, or a mix of both, as hinted by another ad seeking testers.

BioWare is hiring temporary game testers. Our ideal candidates have played both online games such as MMORPGs (Star Wars the Old Republic, DC Universe Online) and action games (Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, Infamous).

Of course we won’t know much more than this until something else leaks out, or an official announcement is made. For now we need to be content with knowing that something is brewing, or “several” somethings, to be more precise.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
