Volition Prepping A Brand New Franchise

New Volition property

As if Volition wasn't busy enough with "Saints Row 3," a "Saints Row" movie,"Saints Row 3DS" and "Red Faction: Armageddon" all in the works, a new listing on their website indicates that they're getting to work on a brand new franchise that will kick off via an action/RPG title.

"Volition is searching for a Design Director for a new action role-playing game," the job description posted at Volition-Inc.com reads. "We are collaborating with a high-powered creative talent in the entertainment industry to develop this original, unannounced franchise."

That "high-powered creative talent" remains a mystery, as does the nature of the game, but maybe if you're skilled enough to score an interview they'll tell you some more about it under NDA. Director Guillermo del Toro has been talking to THQ about some things recently, so he may be a contender. It's entirely possible that THQ and Volition have both been talking to big-name entertainment industry figures, but there's definitely a coincidence at play here at the very least.
