Recent reports say you shouldn't expect to see either the new PlayStation or Xbox at E3 this year and chances are, neither will launch in 2012.
But that doesn't mean they're not coming, and developers need to be ready. In recent months, we've caught glimpses of various studios possibly prepping for the next generation, and now it seems another major team is getting ready for another round of hardware.
A reader has sent us a job listing from ZeniMax's website, where The Elder Scrolls designer Bethesda is clearly seeking a "Future Generation Console Programmer." The position calls for someone to work on an unannounced title, and they're looking for someone with "extensive experience programming and optimizing for the Xbox 360 and PS3." We suppose they could be referring to the Wii U, but considering the team in question, that seems highly unlikely.
So that's another developer who seems to be preparing for the next wave. The question is, are you ready for that wave?
