If you were wondering what Neversoft -- once Activision's premier internal development studio in the days before Blizzard and Infinity Ward -- has been up to since Guitar Hero was put on ice, it looks like we might have some new clues.

A story published on the website Gamerzines speculates that Neversoft is currently working on a first-person shooter -- based on some job listings on the official Neversoft jobs site.

The most interesting was for a "Windows PC Platform Lead Engineer: FPS." If the job title didn't make it clear, the desired qualifications did, listing "a strong passion for and experience with First Person Shooters" and "Online infrastructure experience including Steam distribution and security and anti-cheat systems."

Looks like there's a shooter brewing in the halls of Neversoft.
