Obsidian working on “unique next-gen game”, hiring talent

Fallout: New Vegas studio Obsidian Entertainment is currently working on what it calls a “Unique next generation game,” and is currently hiring for staff with a passion for RPG and action games. Could it be Fallout 4, or something new? You be the judge.

OXM reports that a job listing for level designer confirms the studio is working on a next-gen project, and that responsibilities include, “Planning and populating missions/quests, scripted sequences, encounters, challenges and rewards.”

It all sounds very ‘RPG’ so far, and the advert adds that “Experience working on games with role playing elements,” would be a plus.

The site adds that Obsidian’s art director Rob Nesler has had a next-generation project listed on his online portfolio for some time now, and he has been working on whatever the game is since April 2012. He simply calls it, “Unannounced Next-Gen Console title.”

Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart has talked about games he’d love to make recently, including Fallout: New Vegas 2 and a new Star Wars title he wants to pitch to Disney. It’s unlikely that the next-gen game is either of these however.
