The guys behind Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno could be working on a free-to-play MOBA, job posts suggest.
The dots were connected together by IGN, who spotted the job listings on the Gamasutra job boards.
A game designer position at Visceral’s Redwood Shores office is currently advertised on the boards. The post requires "work experience on MOBA, Action RTS" titles as well as "knowledge of the competitive space."
A job post for a global community manager was posted by Visceral last month, which mentioned that candidates must possess an "unhealthy passion for MOBA games." The title referred to the position as being part of the Play4Free publishing house, which looks after EA’s free-to-play games such as Battlefield Heroes, Command& Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, and Need for Speed World.
The third and final clue is a little less specific: another job post, this time for a character artist, is related to “an upcoming PC action title.”
Obviously, these are just theories and the jobs mightn’t even be related but it’s certainly possible. PCs are the usual stamping ground for MOBA titles. Could this be a Dead Space spin-off?
