British video game developer Sumo Digital, who recently released Sackboy: A Big Adventure for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, is currently hiring for two unannounced games. 

One of the unannounced games is based on an "established AAA open-world action franchise." The game is from a "well-established IP" that has multiple releases. The other game is a  third-person multiplayer-based shooter, however, the size of the game is not known. 

Sumo Digital was founded in 2003 by four former members of Infogrames Studios and now has around 1,000 employees. Games they have worked on include Sackboy: A Big Adventure, LittleBigPlanet 3, Team Sonic Racing, Crackdown 3, and many more.

Hmmm, an established AAA open world action IP. I'll tell you what I wish it was, a new Sleeping Dogs for Square Enix, since Square closed the studio that made Sleeping Dogs. But I doubt it, 8 years have passed since it released and we've seen no real signs that Square was interested in doing a sequel.

Maybe a sequel to Avalanche's 2015 Mad Max game for WB, I could see WB contracting it out to Sumo if Avalanche was too busy to make it. They have the driving expertise to pull either game off, as they have a racing team within the studio that has done everything from the Sonic Kart games to assisting with Forza ports, to doing some Outrun games for Sega.

Another possibility I suppose would be Crackdown 4 for MS, since they developed Crackdown 3 in collaboration with some other studios, but I'm very doubtful of that, it didn't seem like Crackdown 3 was a very big success, I can't see Phil giving it another chance.

Dang, no web developer jobs. At least they are hiring. Most the country is unemployed right now.

These guys are a 3rd party that is hard to read. They make exclusives for both sides.
