Saints Row studio crafting all-new action RPG
Red Faction creator Volition posts job listing for design director for "original" AAA franchise; reference to "high-powered creative talent" hints at possible SyFy, del Toro collaboration.
During THQ's post-quarterly earnings call last week, company executives expressed their intent to leverage their original intellectual property across other forms of media, such as the Saints Row movie or the Red Faction miniseries. Now, it appears the studio behind both franchises is cooking up another all-new title.
According to a job listing on the Volition site, the Champaign, Illinois-based studio is working on an all-new action role-playing game series. The news came via a job listing for a design director--a position that will in turn lead to the hiring of a whole design team for the project.
The listing reads, "Volition is searching for a Design Director for a new action role-playing game. We are collaborating with a high-powered creative talent in the entertainment industry to develop this original, unannounced franchise. The successful candidate will have a proven track record leading design teams and creating AAA-quality player experiences."
The job listing offered one clue as to what the new IP might be. The mention of "a high-powered creative talent in the entertainment industry" could be a reference to the SyFy Channel, which is collaborating with THQ on the Red Faction miniseries. It could also link the project to Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro, who is reportedly finalizing a game deal with the publisher.
