Instead of moving on to Don Quixote, Jack the Ripper, or Titus character-based action games, it appears as if Visceral Games is staffing up for a sequel to this year's Dante's Inferno--at least, a recent job listing from EA.com seems to suggest as much.
"Seeking a highly motivated game designer & level builder for a new IP in the action/adventure genre," the listing reads. "Looking for a creative leader. This is a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label."
The big tip-off is located a little lower in the listing, as it mentions specifically this game will be a sequel to a "major new IP" and Visceral Games is name-dropped as the team in question. Melee combat, 3D level design, and knowledge of cinema framing are also mentioned, which if you remember, are all things Dante's Inferno has. Granted, a billion other games do, too.
== TEASER ==Considering the vague nature of these listings, there's a chance we're wrong: the listing could be for... Dead Space: Kick Fighter or The Simpsons Game 2: Simpsons Harder or something. But in light of the reception and decent sales of Dante's Inferno, it seems more likely that we're talking about a Dante's sequel.
Hmm. Now that I think about it, that Simpsons game doesn't sound so bad. Make it happen, Visceral.
