This is a tricky one. It’s always worth taking any news story with a pinch of salt if it’s based off a resumé, as this one is. And especially now that resumé has been altered, there’s an element of just taking our word for it and we totally understand if you’d rather not. So, with that little word of warning out of the way, let’s get on with it.
The resumé of a graphics programmer at Sucker Punch Productions has found its way online and been spotted by the keen eyes of the guys at Siliconera. The resumé has since been altered to remove the references to dates but not before a screen grab was taken (below). In summary, the entry said that Second Son, the inFamous sequel that looked gorgeous at the PlayStation 4’s unveiling, will be shipping in Q4 2013 as a PlayStation 4 launch title.
The resumé also says lots of other, potentially more interesting things. For instance, the graphics programmer in question claims to have taken a leadership role in implementing HDR into the game engine as well as real time wetness and water effects, haze, reflection and depth of field effects. All of that, in very basic terms, means that inFamous Second Son is going to look absolutely gorgeous.
