I thought this rumor was squashed…guess not.
First, there’s this job listing:
Spark is looking for a senior combat designer for a 3rd Person Action/Adventure sequel in a high-profile science fiction franchise currently greenlit for full production development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC markets.
Then, there’s the LinkedIn page of former Senior Software Engineer for Spark Unlimited, John Lawrie:
Unannounced third person sword fighting game (well known IP, Xbox 360, PS3)
A second LinkedIn page confirms that the Spark Unlimited title is a shooter.
So let’s piece this together, shall we? Well known Sci-Fi IP shooter with sword fighting that also happens to be a sequel.
I don’t know about you, but it sounds a lot like Star Wars to me. Especially when the unnaounced game’s publisher had this to say:
Publisher hasn’t stated when or where the announcement will take place…The time and place could be close or far, far away.
