Unannounced project in development at Brisbane outfit

Sega-owned developer Creative Assembly is looking to branch out from its successful Total War series by developing a next-gen sports title.

According to a job vacancy advert in circulation, the UK headquartered company says it is “currently seeking a passionate and creative lead gameplay programmer for our upcoming next-gen sports title”.

The project is being worked on at the developer’s Australian studio, which was established in Brisbane from 2002.

Creative Assembly recently released the latest edition of its RTS series with Napoleon: Total War.

The group recently won a GAME BAFTA for its work on Empire: Total War, picking up the prize for best strategy game.
