Lionhead Studios made waves when it revealed that it was working on unannounced games that wouldn’t be set in the Fable-verse. Now, more details are coming out about the same through job listings for the studio. A listing for Senior Graphics Programmer indicates that an Xbox One game is in the works and involves the use of Unreal Engine 4.
“Lionhead Studios is seeking a highly skilled and experienced Graphics Programmer to be a key contributor on an unannounced title for Xbox One. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about games and graphics and has experience working on modern rendering engines (DX11 or equivalent), someone with a natural affinity for CPU and GPU optimisation and an eye for visual quality.
“The role involves Unreal Engine 4, so experience with UE3 and especially UE4 is an advantage but not necessarily required. Although we’re using a third party engine, we’re developing a significant amount of graphics tech in-house, so we need someone can join the team and help us push the boundaries of next-gen console hardware.”
What could it be, and will it break the Fable mold that Lionhead has so comfortably enclosed itself in? We’ll find out in the coming months.
