From Irrational Game's latest job posting... quote:Off the back of winning game of the show at E3, we?re looking for lots of talented people to join us in Australia. We?re working on the sequel to one of the best loved PC franchises of all time. I think gamers are going to go nuts when they find out. So, why not come and talk to us about being part of it?
Anyone wanna make a guess at the sequel they're working on?
Irrational Games is owned by Take Two and the System Shock ip belongs to Electronic Arts. I think? it was mentioned somewhere that EA were working on a System Shock 3. In any case, EA renewed the System Shock 3 trademark a while ago, so they aren't letting go of it.
There's some chatter that it might be Max Payne 3 (which Take Two owns the ip of), but there are some hints in the Irrational jobs descriptions like:
Design Director with "understanding of and desire to create first-person shooter gameplay"
Special Effects Artist,Visual Effects Coder, with working knowledge of Unreal 3 editor (would many people have experience with the U3 editor yet? [:o])
Environment & General Concept Artist - "Mech and Tech concepting ability ? weapons, vehicles, technology etc."
So what is a best loved PC franchise of all time that would meet those details?
I'm fairly certain that Irrational Canberra are not working on Bioshock. Irrational Boston are working on Bioshock. I think this has been made clear in the press, perhaps not by local press or Irrational Canberra, but made clear regardless.
You could probably find this out easily enough - I'm to lazy to do so but rather prefer to trust the few good sources that have told me so.

one of the best loved PC franchises of all time? hmmm, hard to say...
what genre of games is Irrational Aus. most known for?
