    Looks interesting. Though I still won't get my hopes up yet. The way the world is at the moment anything could be canned in an instant. It's a bit odd how it doesn't mention the futuristic racing franchise in the main job article, only the initial blurb.

    Well whatever it means, it's a very good find there brainbeat.

    High profile futuristic racing.

    Is Rollcage high profile enough? Don't get me wrong I love Rollcage as well as WipEout but between the two I think it's more WipEout.
    And doesn't Rollcage belong to Take 2 anyways?
    Interesting anyways, thank you. A shiny star at the end of the tunnel.

    Default Sony Liverpool hiring for a "futuristic racer" !

    WipEout developer Sony Liverpool's is after a senior designer to work on a "high profile, futuristic racing franchise". Whatever could that be?

    Check out the index blurb for the job advert here, before it's pulled.

    The post suggests Sony Liverpool's working on something WipEout related. Could it be more DLC for the excellent WipEout HD: Fury? Or perhaps a new game entirely? Or maybe, just maybe, something for the PSP2?

    Probably a new game, not a DLC. Hope they'll found a talented guy, as the former team was composed of true gods.

    Well if it is a "High Profile Futuristic racing franchise" then it's quite possible it could be Wipeout.

    I wouldn't call Motostorm futuristic, well not in it's present guise.

    If it's a new Wipeout then why did Sony lay off a great number of long term SL design team members in Feb?
    Colin Berry said that Sony had decided that there wasn't going to be another Wipeout after FURY, work on it was to stop.
    This was decided on by reasoning that racing games popularity generally speaking goes in cycles.
    Which apart from Wipeout tends to be true from what I've seen over the years

    So is this going to end up the greatest own goal in game producing history, having to rehire staff to make a game that Sony canned less than 12 months ago?
    Wouldn't surprise me, some truly dreadful decisions have been made by those in charge at Sony over the last few years.
    If it does end up being Wipeout.
    Are they going to be making a new Wipeout for launch of the PS4?
    Or a more likely scenario.
    Are they going to be making a port of HD/FURY for the PSP2?

    Time will tell.
    I'm not going to get my hopes up
