Harmonix hiring a Combat Designer for next-gen game

0

Now here's an interesting curiosity. It seems that Cambridge-based developer Harmonix is hiring for a position rather unlike what you may expect of them: A Combat Designer. Here's a bit of what they had in mind, found in the listing:

Harmonix seeks a Combat Designer to create real-time, single-player combat experiences for a brand new IP on next-generation hardware. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute creatively to the studio and work on a project that is unlike anything Harmonix has ever done before.

See? I told you it was interesting. I went and asked our good friend Nick Chester at Harmonix what that might be all about and he laid it out for me:

[We are] hiring a combat designer to create a fighting style to kick your ass if you dare beat any of my [Rock Band Blitz] scores.

Something tells me he's not being entirely forthcoming (though I can't say I would blame him; Nick needs all the help he can get). What do you think these folks have up their sleeves in the next-gen?

[Thanks, Kevin!]
