A “major Canadian company” has various vacancies available for a “semi open-world action adventure title that responds to player choice and interaction.” Superannuation, which posted the link on Twitter, believes the company to be Eidos and suggests the title could be Deus Ex 4.

The project, according to the listing, is based upon an existing IP which is a “well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth within the gameplay.”

Future iterations of the franchise also “intend to really take advantage of the new platforms coming in the next two years to provide an experience with unparralled realism, depth and consequence for player action and choice.”

The current vacancies are:

  • Cinematics Director
  • Senior Gameplay Programmer
  • Lead Technical Developer
  • Level Artists
  • Technical Artist
  • Lead Artist
  • Lead Programmer
  • Senior Programmer

Deus Ex 4 was the obvious choice for Superannuation’s post instead of Thief 4 due to the later already confirmed as being in development. Add in the fact Human Revolution has stealth elements and player choices, it’s not a stretch.

Still, it could also be for Thief 4 and the title of the game just wasn’t mentioned. It could be for anything, really.

Just file the Deus Ex bit away as a rumor for now until we find out something more concrete.
