Kinect Sports developer Rare is working on a number of titles for the next Xbox, according to job vacancies at the studio.
The description for the role states a requirement for a senior product manager to help create “multiple AAA future console releases,” including new IPs.
Though nothing is yet known about the titles, the job description does also state that Rare desire someone with experience in the action-adventure or FPS genres.
"Whilst continual development of their core releases will be maintained, the successful candidate will be joining at a time where the studio is looking to move into new areas and develop new IPs for future platforms," it reads.
"You will have a successful history of releasing exceptional AAA games and these will ideally be in the Action/Adventure or FPS genre but this is not essential."
The developer of classic titles like GoldenEye 007 and Donkey Kong Country, Rare is also know for creating the Viva Pinata and Banjo-Kazooie games. They also designed the avatars for Xbox Live and developed the Kinect Sports series.
