inFamous developer Sucker Punch is advertising for staff to work on a new PlayStation 3 game.

As outlined on the Sucker Punch Productions website, the developer is looking for an art director, a senior producer, a lead sound designer and a senior game designer for its next game.

The senior producer job listing on Gamasutra only mentions the PlayStation 3 under "platforms".

So, what is Sucker Punch up to?

Is it inFamous 3?

Last year Sucker Punch told Eurogamer it would give "serious thought" to a request from Sony to create a third game in the superhero series.

"We'll see where we want to go next," Sucker Punch co-founder Bruce Oberg said.

"That could be with Sony. We have a great relationship with them. We love the PlayStation platform. I'm not lying when I tell you it's a really killer technological platform for us to work on.

"The support and marketing, and also their approach to us, to let us make the game we want to make, is really incredible. Our relationship with Sony has been just incredible, all through the Sly series and all through inFamous."

Independent studio Sucker Punch does not own the inFamous intellectual property – an arrangement it described as a "small price to pay" for the "freedom to make the game we want to make".

Or could Sucker Punch be hiring for a brand new IP?
