Job listing for network engineer reveals multiplayer FPS

Infinity Ward is working on an unnamed multiplayer shooter for next generation consoles, according to a job listing.

The studio behind the monolithic Call of Duty series is looking for a senior network engineer with an interest in first person shooters for the unnanounced game.

As the trial begins for Infinity Ward's Jason West and Vince Zampella, seeking what may amount to a billion in damages against their former employers at Activision, it may be too much to assume the game is part of the Modern Warfare franchise, but it does seem to be the most likely possibility.

The job requires experience working with current generation consoles, and "a reputation for clean, efficient, and well-tested code."

Proficiency in C++ and a B.S. in computer science, mathematics, or equvialent work experience are also required.
