Codemasters Recruitment Drive Leads To Revived IP?
Codemasters is on the hunt for new talent at its Guildford studio, as rumours persist in the nature of its latest game ? the latest suggesting a relaunch of a once-canned project. The ?new shooter IP? as reported by CVG is being led by former Criterion designer Stuart Black.

You'll know of Black's work as the man behind Criterion's 2006 shooter called... er, Black. But the developer has been working at Codies since May 2007, and set about building a new IP later that year with a recently-acquired Guildford studio. Called 'Project Strike Team', progress on the IP slowly dwindled.

With this latest developer drive and Black's involvement in today's announced project, it sounds an awful lot like 'Project Strike Team' could be seeing something of a revival. Maybe now is the time.

Develop spoke with a Codemasters spokesperson, who said that ?with Stuart Black directing the vision for our new IP in production, deployment of EGO and key development figures heading up a highly skilled team, our Guildford facility offers great potential for development talent based in the South East who want to join a growing studio and work on original titles.? Whew.

JUST SAY NO TO CODIES' DOING AN FPS.

Please. For the love of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or your Supreme Deity of Choice. Someone stage an Intervention or something, steer them into a racing game or something they can do competently...because they've proven that an FPS isn't one of those somethings.
