Crystal Dynamics may be developing a new IP for next gen, according to a recent job listing.
Crystal Dynamics, the studio behind the upcoming Tomb Raider, is hiring for a new IP that will be developed for the next generation of consoles, according to a recent job listing on its official website.
The studio is currently seeking an animation engineer to collaborate with animators and programmers on "a cutting edge, original IP for future platforms."
The job ad reveals the ideal candidate will work with "a talented game team to develop and iterate on next-gen animation systems and tools pipelines for engine systems on third-person action adventure AAA titles."
Crystal Dynamics announced earlier in the year that it was working on a new IP, with rumours it would release sometime in 2012; however as both Microsoft and Sony decided against showing its next-gen lineup at E3 earlier in the month it is highly unlikely the studio will reveal its new IP until next year at the earliest.
Tomb Raider was also delayed beyond its initial 2012 release date, and now ships on March 5th 2013.
