By Alex Donaldson, Tuesday, 22 March 2011 20:12 GMT

Ready at Dawn, the developer of the PSP God of War and Jak & Daxter spin-offs, is hiring staff to work on a “AAA New IP” title for home consoles, according to some newly surfaced job postings.

Posted on tech and videogame job site CreativeHeads.net, the three positions for a senior lighting artist, gameplay programmer and senior character artist are all for a new property.

The job postings page also reveals that the new IP will be a third-person action adventure – pointing to the fact that the new title might benefit from Ready at Dawn’s experience in the GoW series.

What home consoles or publishers the new IP is being developed for isn’t mentioned in the postings.

This is a notable step for Ready at Dawn, who previously only worked on spin-offs of existing properties for Sony and a port for Capcom, bringing Okami to Wii.

You can find the job posting over on the Creative Heads website.
