Burnout developer Criterion Games is reportedly hiring for a PlayStation Vita project. Eagle-eyed Internet sleuth Superannuation spotted a job listing for a software engineer at the United Kingdom-based developer that called for a person to optimize and tune the "game resource system for the PS Vita."

The job listing has apparently been amended, as it now states this person will optimize and tune the "game resource system for other platforms." As of press time, Criterion Games parent company Electronic Arts had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

Criterion Games released Burnout Crash last year on Xbox Live but has not made public any new projects. The last retail effort from the shop was 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, which won warm reviews and shipped more than 5 million copies. A new Need for Speed title has been confirmed to ship in 2012.

Last August, job listings at the studio hinted that a forthcoming project from the company would be set in an open world--like the studio's 2008 hit Burnout Paradise--and ship for new platforms. For more on Criterion Games' latest title, check out GameSpot's review of Burnout Crash.
