It looks like Visual Concepts, 2K’s development studio credited with NBA 2K and WWE 2K titles, is hiring for an “unannounced open-world driving game.”

On February 7, Visual Concepts posted a number of new job openings for its Foothill Ranch, Calif., studio, including one for a producer to work on an unannounced project that appears to be a new type of AAA title never seen before. from the studio.

“Our Foothill Ranch studio is looking for a veteran producer to join our development efforts on an unannounced major licensed open-world driving game,” reads the producer’s post from Visual Concepts. “This AAA title is intended for multiple platforms.”

It’s particularly interesting to see Visual Concepts drop the “Major License” detail there, because while 2K has yet to produce a racing title, longtime driving fans will certainly be familiar with the latest flagship driving game from parent company Take-Two Interactive to date, Midnight Club: Los Angeles (2008).

On another Visual Concepts Foothill Ranch post for a senior technical artist, the studio wrote: “This role acts as a liaison between programmers and artists working on a wide variety of features and tools for a new driving game. exciting in the open world.”

Moreover, the Visual Concepts Twitter account had his bio updated for “NBA 2K, WWE 2K, a new AAA game that will blow your mind: Visual Concepts has been making great games for 30 years.”

Ultimately, Visual Concepts having yet to release a title unrelated to NBA 2K and WWE 2K since 2014, and entirely disconnected from the sport since producing Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), it will be interesting to see if/when their first ever racing game is officially announced.
