2K Preparing New Multiplayer Title

The 2K development teams include some of the most talented guys out there; anybody who can deliver something like Bioshock has our respect and attention. This is why we're excited to learn of their new project, which clearly isn't Bioshock 2.

According to recent job postings, 2K Marin is searching for several qualified individuals to work on a new "action-packed AAA multiplayer title," and listed platforms are the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. You can check out the listing for "multiple engineers" over at V for Video Games, and as you can see, it hints at a FPS that uses the Unreal Engine 3. Now, this may be an entirely multiplayer-oriented game - like Warhawk - as evidenced by the first line of the following statement:

"The BioShock team is betting big on multiplayer and plans to stay at the top of the charts...we're careful about the problems we tackle, innovative in our approach, solid in our implementation, and we polish the heck out of everything we do. Right now we're looking for an exceptional individual to direct the development of this multiplayer experience through a combination of leadership, design, coding, and daily problem solving on the gameplay networking and backend server components."

We have no idea what this is, but we certainly want some baseline info ASAP. We're positive that Bioshock 2 is gonna rock, but that's a story-driven FPS that doesn't boast any sort of multiplayer emphasis at all. Therefore, this must be something entirely new, and...well, we wanna know about it!

Yeah I wouldn't release a FPS this year...not with Killzone coming out.

That is, unless its an adventure/shooter like Uncharted.

The only FPS I am looking forward to for quite a while is Killzone 2, and possibly the next COD game from Infinity Ward. I am sick to death of FPS games though for real I want something that is engrossing and captures my attention for an extended amount of time, not something that is the same throughout the game, and for the most part that is what an FPS is. It is "pick up a gun, shoot some dudes, get a different gun and shoot some more dudes."

I want some RPGs dammit!!

Is there any game genre other than killing something or point to point? I think they both cover everything i can think of.
