The last we heard of Visceral Games’ new IP, all we knew was that it was apparently “heavily backed by EA leadership” and that it was a “thrilling online action shooter game”.
But with the developer’s previous titles including the horror third person shooter series Dead Space, the open-word third person shooter The Godfather II and the third person hack-n-slash Dante’s Inferno, as well as the upcoming third-person shooter Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, most assumed the game would be from the third person perspective.
However, a new job listing PSLS has uncovered suggests otherwise. The ad states:
We are seeking an experienced Multiplayer Level Designer with shooter expertise at the Visceral Redwood Shores Studio. This is a major opportunity to contribute creatively to an exciting new IP.
Crucially, the listing then goes on to say that applicants “must be an avid FPS gamer” – could this be why Guerrilla Games’ co-founder left the Killzone studio to work a Visceral?
Interestingly, Kotaku previously rumored that a Dead Space FPS was in the works, which, although not a new IP, is a new take on the franchise.
Would you prefer a whole new IP that is an FPS, or Dead Space: The FPS? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
