Visceral Games, the studio behind the Dead Space franchise and God of War pretender Dante's Inferno, is working on a brand new IP.

According to a job advertisement spotted by OXM, the EA subsidiary needs "a lead multiplayer designer to help create a thrilling online action shooter game."

"This is a unique opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise which is a cornerstone for a new EA Games Studio," the listing added.

Visceral's only recent foray into online gaming - Dead Space 2's multiplayer mode - wasn't met with a great deal of enthusiasm.

Recent reports also suggest that Visceral is hard at work on a third installment in the Dead Space franchise, as well as a possible FPS spin-off.
