Ready at Dawn job posting points to new triple-A console IP

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

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.

    They should be banned from making PSP titles. Seriously, I hate it when such a talented makes superb games on PSP that are better than most triple-A titles of said home consoles.

    Chains of Olympus was such a good, solid game on the PSP, will await more info on this!

    @1 Think about it, if they hadn’tve made the PSP games they made, no one would even know of the talent ReadyAtDawn posses. I think what you mean to say is they shoudln’t be working on franchise spin-offs, cause that’s an injustice. Beacause if there’s one thing Kojima Productions proved is that the PSP is a viable format to release an IP on (or at least was, seeing as how the NGP’s coming down the pike really soon).

    I know that their fantastic start at PSP showed what they can do but then why the **** they kept working on PSP games for so long?
    They should have made Ghost of Sparta for PS3. Even as a spin-off, it would have been a better project for them IMO.

    To be honest though, I just hate core / home console games on handhelds.
