No they won't. As I said in an earlier post, EA is notorious for over staffing especially during game development crunch time. I suspect they will continue this same process they have made famous throughout the industry.
Over staff and then lay-off once the work is completed and shipped.

Well if you noticed most jobs posted now for EA are (Contract) jobs. So that falls in line with what you have said. They contract in for 6-12 months.

I agree. Anyone who's had any real experience in the industry knows this article is a waste of space.

Hire me, ill get a group of people together and make battlefront because apparently no one else can...

You have my vote.

Amazing that the suits in the offices cannot grasp that a Star Wars battlefront title would sell on par with Call of Duty. Perhaps not quite as many copies, but pretty damn close.

Yet we get nothing....

I don't get it either, its not like you need to make it just for fan service just from a business stand point alone it is you most profitable star wars series but yet you give force unleashed a sequel?!

DICE will make it. 2015/2016 release. How much ya willing to wager. They could announce as early as E3 2013.
