This time it’s not so much as a leak of any specific titles but a major Canadian development studio is hiring for a “project is based upon an existing IP that is a well known and respected action/adventure title, with elements of choice and stealth within the gameplay.”
Major Canadian developer that is based in Quebec could refer to Ubisoft or Eidos Interactive. If we go for game of choice and stealth then we could be looking at three major franchises. From Ubisoft that is Assassin’s Creed or Splinter Cell, and from Eidos Interactive that could be a Deus Ex title.
Now here’s where the job advert gets really interesting stating that, “future iterations of the franchise intend to really take advantage of the new platforms coming in the next two years to provide an experience with unparralled realism, depth and consequence for player action and choice.”
The only confirmed new platform out in the next two years is the Wii U. The advert specifically mentions platforms. Is this another clue that we can expect the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 by 2014 at the latest? And what franchise are you hoping that this advert is talking about?
