It's been a while since EPIC Games has shown us something new, and seeing Unreal Tournament and Gears of War coming from them has really made me excited for what the future could hold for this development team.

Two new job openings on EPIC Game's website could be pointing at new IP the development team may be working on.

One job posting for a technical artist states "to work on multiple new and existing IP's across multiple platforms." The job would involve attacking the more complex issues that arise when we push the technology envelope, both in production on current hardware, and prototyping for next-generation hardware."

The second job posting gives away a little bit more information, and is for a systems designer position. The job posting is looking for those that can "work with the tools and technology that are shaping the next generation of games" on "an unannounced competitive online action game that includes player progression, heavy itemization, and a dynamic economy."

The second job posting has immediately got me very excited for the future. Could we be seeing a Borderlands loot style hack n' slash? Will EPIC Games be doing a large multiplayer RPG FPS? Looking at EPIC Game's history, a shooter is much more likely, but what comes out of this can only be guesses at this point.
