Lionhead working on a new MMO?
Are Lionhead studios developing a brand new IP? maybe even a console based MMO? Fresh from Peter Molyneux’s depature it seems a new job listing has cropped up online. Spotted by techno sleuth Superannuation the post offers an
Opportunity to work on MMO like title for next generation consoles. AAA game and budget! This is to assist in the development of a major brand new IP that is being targeted for the future generation of platforms and will be an RPG based game with a radical new take on how co-operative and multiplayer gameplay feeds into the experience, while blending online and single-player into one complete experience
Past this the posting doesn’t go into too much more detail other than to say the game may include
a complex progression system, multiple routes through the campaign, and an MMO like multiplayer experience that will affect the outcome of the player experience, and many other attributes surrounding their profile (such as the environment and the outcome of certain actions).
This is certainly promising news, Lionhead have been well-known in the past for crafting some great RPG games, with titles such as the Fable trilogy and the Black & White series under their belt it will surely be exciting to see where they go next, especially within the MMO genre.
It’s safe to say I’m already excited, but what do you all think? Light up the comments section with your thoughts below!
