Yesterday, we learned through a Facebook post is that Criterion Games is looking for new members to join its team. After looking through the job openings, NuGame Network discovered the following jobs for hire through the Criterion web site:
Senior Sound Designer
Senior Concept Artist – Contract
Vehicle Handling Software Engineer – Contract
Software Engineer – Contract
Graduate Software Engineer – Contract
Vehicle Handling Designer – Contract
Environment Artist – Contract
Physics Engineer- Contract
Graduate Software Engineer
Game Designer- Vehicle Handling
Going by the Game Designer and Vehicle Handling Software Engineer, there is a very high possibility that Criterion is prepping for another entry in the Burnout franchise in the future. It was been eight years since the last Paradise released for the PS3 and XB360 and while the original group of developers have moved on the Criterion franchise, it is still in the hands of the new team at Criterion and EA.
Then again, it may not be. It is possible that they may do another Need for Speed. We will follow up with this story as we find out more. You can view the listing here: Criterion Jobs
