IGNA Microsoft job listing posted today may suggest Lionhead Studios is working on a new title for a next generation console. An ad seeking a lead designer indicates this is the next Peter Molyneux project, which purports itself as a "genre-defining new title."
In addition, Microsoft also listed a lead engine programmer spot at Lionhead earlier this month hitting on similar notes to the designer. Both ads say the companies prefer applicants with experience using the Unreal Engine. In addition, the programmer listing desires the ability to "write new engine systems as well as maintain and restructure existing ones" as well as "significant experience leading teams designing and implementing modern rendering engines." The example given is DirectX 11.
Given that DirectX 11 can't run on Xbox 360, and we're starting to hear more about Epic's Unreal Engine 4, signs point to Lionhead working on a project for the Xbox 360 successor, which is rumored to be compatible with DX11.
We've reached out to Microsoft for comment on Lionhead's future with the Unreal Engine and next-gen hardware.
