Visceral Games Prepares For “Bold New IP”

March 1, 2011Written by Tyler Minarik

The talented developer behind the successful Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno franchise is getting ready to create a new IP.

Dead Space 2 only released a month ago, and Visceral is wasting no time getting ready to follow up with another new IP. Details on what the game will be are virtually non-existent at the moment, however we do know it’s on the way, thanks to a new job listing. Posted on Gamasutra, the listing is for a new Executive Producer for Visceral Redwood Shores. The EA studio will be aiming to produce yet another AAA title, making it a “bold new IP”.

Considering the past games produced, such as Dead Space, Dead Space 2, Dante’s Inferno, and Godfather, we hopefully can be expecting yet another great title to look forward to. We can’t tell if it will be as violent as previous titles, but considering the past trends, one could only hope so. Our only other clue for the moment regarding the game is that it will likely be multiplatform, with both PS3 and Xbox listed in the posting. EA and Visceral are looking for top quality candidates, with 10 or more years experience within the industry, and able to be the “person who builds and motivates the team to accomplish their goals of shipping a high quality, hugely entertaining title on time and on budget.” Hugely entertaining definitely sounds good, so you can be sure we’ll be keeping tabs on this, and will keep you informed when more information arrives.
