inFamous 2 In Development?

Are you a lead character artist?  No?  Want to be, hmm?  Do you want be one for Sucker Punch and work on what we can only assume is inFamous 2, because the team have “got big plans for the characters in our next game, and you might be the person to help put those plans into action.”  A new job listing on their site suggests Sucker Punch are hiring for a follow up to PS3 exclusive inFamous, if a qualification for “current urban style and street fashion” knowledge is anything to go by.

“We’re looking for someone who can do expert-level character modeling and texturing, while simultaneously managing a small characters team. If you’re up to the challenge, we can guarantee your work will be seen and enjoyed by millions of game players. The Lead Character Artist works with the Art Director and Creative Director to shape the design and appearance of characters in our forthcoming AAA title, then leads the team to realize that vision. This position emphasizes the ability to make a big impact doing character modeling and texturing, while leading a small characters team.”

It’s only the urban style bit that’s making us think this isn’t for Sly Cooper, unless the crazy platforming racoon has gone all hipster on us.  They’re also looking for an Art Director that knows about “lighting”.  inFamous had lighting – it was really dark lighting, but it was there.  See? Confirmed.
