Fable developer Lionhead Studios posted a new job listing recently seeking a developer with a "background working on new franchises or reimagining's of existing franchises."
A call for an animation director (via OXM), posted this month, adds that a desirable candidate would have a "proven ability to bring new ideas to new franchises whilst ensuring its heritage is respected."
The job posting suggests a return to a series Lionhead Studios has worked on before. The Guildford, United Kingdom, developer has created a handful of franchises, though its most well-known work is the Fable fantasy role-playing series.
Another new job posting, this one for a core engine programmer, seeks a developer with experience making games on Epic's Unreal Engine 3 and/or Unreal Engine 4. Past Fable games have been built using various iterations of the Unreal Engine.
Lionhead Studios, a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, has not provided any details on its current project, though recent reports peg this game to be a next-generation title with massively multiplayer online elements.
The company recently hired MMO veteran John Needham to lead the studio. He was formerly the CEO of Marvel Heroes developer Gazillion Entertainment and, before that, City of Heroes maker Cryptic Studios. He has also been chief financial officer at Sony Online Entertainment.
If Lionhead Studios' current project is a game for Microsoft's next Xbox, it could be unveiled as early as next week during the company's next-generation reveal event on May 21.
