Rock Band and Dance Central developer Harmonix is branching out for an upcoming project. A job listing at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, developer seeks a combat designer to "create real-time, single-player combat experiences" for a new intellectual property on next-generation hardware. The developer says this project is unlike anything the studio has made before.
In June, Harmonix studio director of communications and brand management John Drake said the company was working on at least two new AAA franchises, one of which may represent a departure from the music-based games the studio is known for.
As for Harmonix's current projects, Rock Band Blitz is due out next week and is the first downloadable entry in the series, while the Kinect-required Dance Central 3 is being readied to ship this fall for the Xbox 360.
