Wipeout studio working on new racer

Job listing on Sony's Liverpool studio says unannounced project in "high profile racing franchise" is in development.


Yesterday, a job listing revealed that Finnish studio Remedy is hiring for a new AAA Xbox 360 project, which could possibly be Alan Wake 2. Today, another job listing indicates that a new Wipeout project may be in the works at the series' developer, Sony Computer Entertainment's Studio Liverpool.

According to a post on the studio's website, "Studio Liverpool requires an experienced and upbeat Senior Designer to work with a talented and experienced team on a high profile racing franchise." The franchise is not named, but Studio Liverpool's highest profile racing series is the music-intensive Wipeout collection of games. Sony Europe reps had not commented on the listing as of press time.

The last installment in the futuristic racing series was Wipeout HD, a collection of 1080p-upscaled tracks from the PSP games Wipeout Pure and Wipeout Pulse. The game also features eight reverse tracks, four new ships, two alternative heads-up displays, two-player offline split-screen, and trophy support.

Initially available as a digital download from the PlayStation Network in 2008, Wipeout HD was rereleased last fall in disc form, which also contained its Fury expansion. 3D visual support for the game was patched in this past June but requires a 3D-capable HDTV to play.
