Ready At Dawn Working On A Console Game

A job listing says the PSP developer is working on a console title.

PSP developer Ready At Dawn Studios is known for delivering console-like experiences on the Sony handheld, specifically with the God of War series. And now it appears as if the studio will be developing another actual console-based experience. A recent job listing, at least, says that a console game is in development at the studio. Provided nothing terrible happens, this’ll be the first console title Ready at Dawn will have released since the 2008 Wii port of Okami, a PS2 original.

"Are you ready to work on an exciting new AAA IP for the home console?" the listing asks, not leaving much to question. "Ready At Dawn is working on a 3rd-person action adventure and is looking for talented, motivated and self-directed developers to join our team,” it says.  

 
   
 
No other hints are present in the listing, but the big news is out: Ready at Dawn is returning to consoles in some kind of capacity. Will this game be another port? Will it be another God of War title on the PS3? Will it be something entirely brand-spanking new? Ah, these are the questions we’re left with. (For the record, I hope it's the latter.)

Oh my.

Wouldn't it be funny if it was a new IP that was a mix of Okami and God of War? 
 
Okami of War.

Hmmm I wonder what platforms it's going to be on?  Ready at Dawn is made up of some pretty awesome talent.  A bunch of former Blizzard and Naughty Dawg senior programmers and the like.  I'm always excited for what they bring to the table.  They're actually one of the very few dev's who actually made the PSP worth purchasing.

I wish this was news that there was a PS3 HD version of Okami coming...

Ready At Dawn has done incredible things with graphics on the PSP, so I hope they can bring the same level of expertise to a home console, just... just please... don't be another God of War game.... please.

Good for them.  I remember this was their ambition a couple years ago.  Glad they're finally doing it.

My best guess is it has to be a new IP, but it could be anything.

Lovely news.
 
Along with 5th Cell, I am pretty excited to see what these developers have to offer on consoles, lets hope it's good.

Great news, they're amazing at what they've done thus far. Good vibes to R@D.

It says "Brand New IP", so I think it's something new. Very interested to see what they're up to, people really like the PSP GoW games.

I cant wait to see what it is, they do a great job on the PSP, i want to see what they will do with the power of a console.

I hope it's a new Jak game, If i recall right they made Daxter too.

This could be cool, and good for them!

Cool. Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta are the only God of War games I like.

I'm interested.

I'm sure they will do great. Ready At Dawn has already shown how talented they are and I can't wait to see them developing something of their own.
