Excuse us while we continue to scrape the figuratively parched barrel for marginally interesting stories. Infinity Ward has posted a new job opening, advertising for a social network engineer. The employee will supposedly be responsible for “high level network code for an exciting unannounced title for next generation console systems”.

The listing demands an interest in "first-person shooters", so you can rest assured this is a sequel to the long-running Call of Duty franchise. With Treyarch currently hard at work on this year's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, it looks like Infinity Ward is expecting new consoles to arrive next year.

It's getting hot in here.
