ModNation Racers Team Developing "Original IP"
If you're a fan of the "Play, Create, Share" philosophy pioneered by LittleBigPlanet, you're likely on board with ModNation Racers, set to release for the PS3 and PSP on May 25 in the US.
And if you enjoy it, you might end up looking forward to the developer's next interesting project. We already know that United Front Games is working on bringing the True Crime series back into the limelight but in addition, and according to GamerZines, the team is also toiling away on an "upcoming next gen, original IP title." This is from a recent job listing on the developer's website; the position is a "mission scripter" and furthermore, the candidate must have "a special interest in open world games." That shouldn't be too surprising, though, as after delivering a project that's all about player customization and freedom, the team would still want to include a certain amount of freedom in their new game. The only question is, what is it? Or if we're not allowed to have a title, into what genre does it fall? It'll be very interesting to see future games from United Front, simply because they're relatively unknown to many and ModNation Racers has already proven to be a hit with most critics.
We'll let you know if the team decides to spill the beans before E3, but maybe E3 is our best bet. That's where they first officially unveiled ModNation last year, remember?
