Job postings hint at PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sequel A pair of job opportunities at SuperBot sprung up recently on Gamasutra which suggest that a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may be in the works. The first one, for a game designer, mentions finding someone with "a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale," and "knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics."

The second ad is for an art director for "a project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished product."

In that same posting, it notes candidates should have a "particular emphasis on the history of PlayStation titles and characters," which would fit the MO for another PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale game, as they'd be adding additional Sony characters to a new title.

If this logic holds up, this would be a bit of a shock to many people as the game was reported to have sold very poorly in the UK. On Sony's end though, they had said that sales numbers were "right on target" with their expectations.
