    GameSpot – Maxis hiring for future Online PC simulation game

    A job listing spotted by Superannuation asks for a development director for an unannounced “next-generation online simulation game” at the Maxis studio in Emeryville, California.

    Although specifics on the project are unknown, EA is clearly looking for an experienced individual to help lead it. The listing requires its applicant to have more than 5 years of “project management experience on at least two shipped titles,” one of which must be a PC game.

    Additionally, the listing hints that work on the project is still in the earliest stages. Applicants must have “created a development plan for a title from concept to ship” to be considered for the position. As of press time, Electronic Arts has not responded to GameSpot’s request for comment on the job listing.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they plan to jump back to the SimCity series for this.* Their current work is Spore, and DarkSpore should be announced sometime next week…So either this is going to be another Spore game (or possibly, DarkSpore itself), a new IP, or just maybe – maybe SimCity 5.* I don’t think it’ll be anything to do with The Sims as otherwise the listing would show up as EA.* And they know for a fact that they can generate a huge mass of sales with Maxis once again behind the SimCity franchise.

    Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
