A job posting by Dead Space series maker Visceral Games has confirmed the studio’s working on a new IP, a “thrilling online action shooter game” which will be the “cornerstone for a new EA Games Studio”.
The job ad’s looking for a lead multiplayer designer, who will design maps and mentor other designers at the new studio.
Visceral’s only recent multiplayer outing was the online component of Dead Space 2, which didn’t meet with a lot of success.
Apart from this new IP, Visceral Games is also rumored to be developing the next Dead Space game and a second Dante’s Inferno.
A Dead Space FPS title is also rumored to be in development.
