Black Rock Working On Mystery Title For PS3, 360
If you're currently enjoying Split/Second - and we know a good many of you are - you're probably interested in hearing about developer Black Rock's new project.
These guys know racing, which is why we're assuming it's a racing game. As noted by GamerZines, there's a job listing on Black Rock's site that indicates "an unannounced game on Xbox 360 and PS3." They're currently seeking "an experienced Technical Art Director," and they also need a Studio Design Dept. Manager, who will have "a strong passion and expert knowledge for games of all genres." Of course, given the recent success of Split/Second, it wouldn't be a shock to learn that a sequel was on the way, but there's one additional tidbit of interest. Firstly, while they do specify a need for experience in racing games, they say they want a "knowledge of all genres" and furthermore, someone who has "prior experience in motion capture." ...now, if it is a racing game, which it certainly should be, what kind of racing experience also features mo-cap? Well, guess we'll just have to wait and see; we're definitely intrigued.
In addition to Split/Second, Black Rock is also well known for producing certain titles in the acclaimed MotoGP franchise, as well as 2008's excellent off-road racer, Pure.
