Codemasters is developing an "exciting new IP for digital and console platforms", according to various job descriptions for its Digital Studio, that appears to be targeted for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Multiple job ads for the developer were posted online last month, each specifically mentioning "experience on new console platforms and PC" as desirable skills.

The project also appears to be linked to a new racing franchise after community manager Ben Walke stated last week that Codemasters is "firmly focused on our racing titles at the moment", and that it has "no current plans for an FPS".

There's a further job ad, too, this time seeking an employee to work on an "exciting new IP for mobile and tablet platforms", although it isn't clear whether this is related to a different project or a mobile port. Both games, however, appear to be in development using Unity3D.

Rumours of a new IP at the developer first emerged almost two years ago when a former developer revealed that she had been working on a "new IP at Codemasters that will span at least 6 platforms including true 'next-gen' hardware", and would be the first game powered by "Codemasters new engine EGO 2".

Is this that game? Probably not. The job descriptions state that the successful candidate would "join at the very start of the project alongside an extremely dedicated and talented core team".

So what does Codemasters have up its sleeve? Given its recent teases, expect to hear more on its future plans later this week.
