Posted on January 24, 2012, Phil Owen Visceral Working On New Online Shooter
Here’s a job listing for “Lead Multiplayer Designer – Visceral Games”:
EA is looking for a lead multiplayer designer to help create a thrilling online action shooter game. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise which is a cornerstone for a new EA Games Studio.
So Visceral is working with a new studio to make an online shooter? Ugh. Yeah, we need more of those.
The folks at Visceral are busy bees, as we think they’re working on Dead Space 3 and a sequel to Dante’s Inferno, so adding yet another project is a bit ambitious. I don’t like that an excellent action-adventure studio would make an online shooter, though. That seems a bit… boring. Whatever.
