Splash Damage staffing up for unnamed project

Brink shop adds new positions to its career page bringing total vacancies to 14; no word on what developer is working on.

THQ's near-future shooter Homefront launched in March to mixed reviews. And just this, week its publisher shuttered the New York City shop behind it, Kaos. Class-based sci-fi shooter Brink was released in May and also received scattered reviews, but that has not hurt the developer, as it is staffing up for a new game.

Splash Damage hopes London is calling developers to it.

The London, England-based developer today posted new career positions on its website, bringing the total number of vacancies to 14. These career listings include calls for a Lead VFX artist, a Lead Online Services programmer, one producer, and others.

Unfortunately, the career listings do not shed light on whether or not the studio is staffing up for a sequel to Brink or something entirely new.

As of press time, Splash Damage has not responded to GameSpot's request for comment or clarification on the matter.

In addition to Brink, Splash Damage has worked on Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Doom III, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. For more on Splash Damage's most recent title, check out GameSpot's review of Brink.

How about either: 1) An intensely riveting story-driven game that needs no multiplayer mode 2) An only-multiplayer game with a plethora of options, customization, zero-lag/zero-glitches, and lots of FUN! Just don't try to mash together a bland story and a glitchy multiplayer for one game; that makes a bad game... (brink)

Is the project titled "Fixing Brink"?

What ever they work on it has better come with much more content. Total of 8 + 2 maps for both sides, single player and multiplayer is bloody lazy in my opinion.

i totally agree with matrix cause brink has way to many glitches and other things that just make the game impossible to play and besides that no matter what side you are on people on you're team don't seem to help you out no matter what you're trying to accomplish. maybe some times they will throw some health but when you are trying to beat a certain mission and you don't end up finishing it the leader of you're group will pull you out even if that said mission is not completed.

I love Brink and own a copy, though I did get it heavily discounted. Sure there are some AI issues but there is also a ton of fun to be had with it and some amazing creativity going on. I'm hoping that they'll at least release some more challenge maps as part of what they're staffing up for.

Hope it's better than Brink. Brink was a huge letdown. Clunky movement, lag, glitches, etc.

@NoDzombie Odds have always been high that the DLC will be turned into alittle promo event during the Summer Sales on Steam, which are coming. It'd be nice if these new staff positions were to help churn out more content for Brink, faster, while the current team further tweak what is already there.

@holtrocks i never said anything about Activision, this increase in staff can only be because they are starting work on a new project, whether that is a Brink sequel or not makes no difference, whatever it is we likely wont see the game released for at least another 2 years
