You didn’t think the PlayStation Vita release schedule was going to remain a barren wasteland forever did you? Good, because it looks like Burnout developer Criterion is readying a new title for the handheld.

A new job listing posted by the British studio is in search of a software developer responsible for “optimising and tuning the game resource system for the PS Vita” and “interfacing the game engine with several parts of the Vita OS”. Other tasks include the management of Trophies and LiveArea.

The listing also references the implementation of “interoperation between the PS3 and Vita”.

We probably won’t find out what Criterion is working on until next month’s E3, but the likeliest candidate is a new Need for Speed game. And if that’s the case, it's safe to get excited.
