With the exception of 2008’s Spore, Maxis has largely been focused on The Sims and SimCity for as long as it’s been around, while in recent years, with The Sims 4’s post-launch support being a priority of the studio, they haven’t really put out any major new games. However, that might be about to change soon.

Several job listings for various positions at Maxis have gone up at EA’s careers website, and several of them make it abundantly clear that the studio is working on something new. “We are gearing up for our next big production and we need some passionate teammates to collaborate with to bring our new project to life,” reads the listing for VFX Artist.

“Maxis Texas, EA’s newest Maxis studio, is looking for a visionary Art Director to lead our art team in the creation of a new, unannounced title,” the ad for Art Director reads. “We’re looking for candidates with a unique vision and the ability to promote that vision, providing stunning visuals at the highest levels of execution.”

Meanwhile, listings for both, Senior Character Artist and Senior Server Software Engineer also make mention of a new unannounced IP.

Of course, there’s no telling what this project is. Looking at Maxis’ track record, it would be easy to assume that they’re working on another new simulation IP, but there’s every chance that they’re doing something completely different this time. Here’s hoping we hear more about whatever this project is in the near future.
