Like tons of other industries, video game developers often recruit new talent by posting job openings online. Such is the case with Capcom Vancouver’s recent listing for a design director needed to help out on an “unannounced new IP.” Certainly the fact that Capcom Vancouver is hiring isn’t exciting in itself, but we gamers love picking apart these listings for any morsel of new game insight.

According to the listing, the talented Capcom Vancouver is looking for someone with "experience implementing compelling content in third-person action games".

"We have two unannounced projects in the pipe and there is lots of work to be done,” the listing reads. “We need the help of smart, passionate and dedicated people to help us make our open world action games!"

It also sounds like this new title will be available for 360 and PS3. What’s more, Capcom Vancouver is predictably rumored to be working on Dead Rising 3, so one of the titles mentioned above could easily be a continuation of the zombie adventure.

Anyway, we’re excited by the prospect of a new IP coming from the fine folks at Capcom Vancouver.
