Early last month we reported that Sanzaru Games are working on something for PS4/Xbox One and PC, quite an exciting prospect for all involved.

However, it looks like they’re not quite done with handheld development just yet. A new job posting from the studio suggests that the firm are working on both handheld and console games.

Usually it’s fun to take a look at these kind of career adverts and spot the clues as to what game the position is related to, but in this case it’s a little more difficult as there aren’t any obvious hints, even with the mention of vehicles that could be any manner of games and the vehicles could be player controlled or simply features within the world.

Sanzaru Games have previously worked on some big name titles that include the God of War Collection and The Sly Collection for the PS Vita as well as their own original entry in the Sly Cooper series with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the PS Vita and PS3.
