    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

    I believe Cold Storage said he was working on tracks for a PS3 game so I'd assume this is it?

    Good find. And I hope Stevie is right. Barrel rolls are like smoking, the only way to cut down is to quit completely

    But whatever happens, I think it`s probably too soon for the getting up of hopes over this, and too late to stop that happening

    Too late to abolish BRs as well I hope

    Actually to be fair if it was nice and 2097-esque I wouldn't really mind at all. Get back into the whole "Oh cock how do I land this thing smoothly without losing any time" thing an all that

    Unless they're developing something from the ground up for the PS4, I'm hoping this will be another expansion to WOHD. The base game is so solid, more content would be great. Maybe a few different styles of tracks.

    Also: Long Live The Barrel Roll! \m/!

    After playing the original WO, I'd have to say I'm not a fan of the floatiness in comparison to HD, so I personally hope they don't go that route with any new game.

    Cant imagine it would be for a new playstation, as theyve only just rebranded the ps3 for slimline so bringing a new so early into this would be a bit sily on sonys part, they still need to milk the ps3 for all its 3D blu ray tech.

    PSP2 could be likly though perhaps?
