EA Gothenburg is hiring ‘a lot’ for what appears to be the next installment of the Need for Speed franchise.

CVG reports that a job posting on the studio’s career site reads:

“Would you like to be a part of EA? Would you like to work on a game in the Need for Speed franchise? You now have the opportunity to become a part of EA Gothenburg and fulfill those two wishes! We are hiring, and we are hiring a lot! To the right you will find what roles we’re currently looking to fill – if you feel that any of descriptions match your profile, don’t hesitate: apply now!”

Frostbite 2 has been name-dropped repeatedly among the studio’s job listings, “EA Gothenburg is a new EA studio focusing on making a new generation of games on the Frostbite 2 engine.”
