A job listing from Peter Molyneux's Lionhead is seeking a lead engine programmer for an unannounced title”.
The applicant must have experience with DirectX 11, which is not used in either Xbox 360 or PS3 but has been rumoured (and is to all intents a cert) for the next Xbox.
They must also have worked as a senior or lead programmer on a current-gen triple-A release.
