Monolith Productions developed last year's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which won GameSpot's Game of the Year award. Now, it looks like it's ramping up work on a new project.

Parent company Time Warner posted advertisements for several openings at Monolith. These include positions such as producers, artists, and programmers. The descriptions describe Monolith's pedigree, culminating in a focus on Shadow of Mordor as a huge success for the company.

Although Monolith hasn't said anything about a sequel to the game yet, it's a safe bet to assume that we haven't seen the last of Shadow of Mordor. It sits at an 87 on Metacritic, and it won a number of different Game of the Year awards.

In December, Shadow of Mordor's design director remarked that the game was just the beginning of what the studio wanted to do with the Nemesis system, and that there was a ton of potential for more storytelling using the enemies. "There’s a lot more to explore and a lot more we can do to develop those villains," he said. "And to be super honest, it was our first go, so we’ve just scratched the surface with what we can do with the Nemesis system."

Keep an eye on GameSpot for more about Monolith's next title as it becomes available.
