It’s almost impossible to keep a good game under wraps these days. Through leaks of anything from artwork or a simple teaser image, major game announcements have been kneecapped before they even leave the starting gate. And now, a job listing calling for a gameplay programmer seems to have inadvertently triggered a slew of rumors claiming that Epic Games is secretly developing a new and unseen IP.
“Epic Games is looking for Gameplay Programmers to join the team currently working on Gears of War 3, as well as a new unannounced IP in development.”
It’s pretty to-the-point and doesn’t exactly beat around the bush (which makes me wonder if it was done on purpose) and they’re obviously trying to build off of the end of Gears of War that will happen later this year. But if Bulletstorm didn’t prove that they could go off and do new and exciting (and insane) things, I don’t know what does.
