Sony’s working on a new PlayStation 3 IP

Sony Cambridge studio is cooking up a new intellectual property for the PS3, a job ad for a lead engineer shows.

Posted on February 1, the ad reads, “We are looking for an experienced lead programmer to head the engineering team for our next PS3 game title as it enters the production phase … The position offers an excellent opportunity to play a key role in the shaping and delivery of an exciting new IP for the studio”.

The nature of the project remains a mystery and likely won’t be easy to figure out as the studio has worked on numerous properties of many shapes and sizes — the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2, Heavenly Sword, Wipeout, PlayTV and EyeToy among them.
