Maxis, the studio behind the iconic The Sims series, is hiring for a new IP according to an article from PCGamer.
The job listing says that EA is seeking a Creative Director to work at the Maxis studio in Austin, Texas, US. This Creative Director will “lead, foster and mentor an experienced team of developers working on a new IP.”
Interestingly, one of the requirements for the job is having experience in PC products, mobile titles, and live services. Working with licensing partners and having experience with public speaking is also a big bonus.
There are no details on what exactly the new IP will be but, given the long list of requirements that mention both having experience with AAA games and working with licensing partners, we can take an educated guess that it may be a licensed AAA game for both PC and mobile with potential microtransactions present.
