Studio Liverpool Working On New Game?

What are the Wipeout devs up to?

Eagle eyed TSAin ‘beeje13′ has spotted a job advertisment for Wipeout developers, Studio Liverpool. The team have been rather quiet since the release of Wipeout Fury (sadly because a lot of them were made redundant) but it looks like the team are starting work on a new title.

The job posting is for Senior Games Designer and interesting section of the advert is as follow:

‘Encyclopaedic knowledge of games, especially 3rd / 1st person action’

Obviously Wipeout is neither 1st or 3rd person action adventure so could this be a new title, or perhaps something from the back catalogue? I vote for a re-imagining of Shadow Of The Beast…

    This sounds pretty awesome, if it gets the same treatment as wipeout then it cant be that bad at all

    hope this turns out well for studio liverpool, the wipeout series is awesome and hopefully if this 1st/3rd person action game goes well an update for wipeout hd or even a new wipeout game might be a possibility.

    I hope it’s Hired Guns but the problem with that could be that Rockstar North (aka DMA Design) own the rights…..I doubt they do since they clearly didn’t for Lemmings but you never know.

    A new Shadow of the Beast would be awesome, as would Assault Rigs, Armour-Geddon, Barbarian,
    The City of Lost Children and Krazy Ivan.

    As much as I love WipEout, it’s great to hear that they’re trying something new.

    I thought Studio Liverpool were more of a racing one? They’ve worked on F1 games too.
    Anywho, this’ll be interesting. The WipEout games are quality :)

    Wipeout is a class game so i’m expecting the same level of quality.
    Shadow of the Beast was bloody difficult but the parallax scrolling was awesome at the time. :)
    Anyway if anyone’s taking requests for game remakes i would ask for Turrican and Flimbos Quest.

    Yes! can’t wait it could be anything I’m hoping for something futuristic would be fresh since there’s rarely been anything like G-police or even Colony Wars in years or since Playstation right?
