Some development studios release a great product and makes sure they let everybody know with unprecedented levels of hype, and other studios sit there relatively quietly letting their quality do the the talking for them, Brighton’s Black Rock Studios are one of those studios.
Developers of the rather good, but under the radar, Pure and the adrenaline filled excellence that is Split/Second look to be hard at work on their next project. A vacancy on publisher, Disney’s website shows that they are hiring for an as yet unannounced PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game.
So if you’ve spent years studying and are now a Bachelor of Science you’ll be able to stop stacking those shelves or working in a call centre and actually put it to good use helping to make a great game. However, they do say you also need a couple of years experience working on AAA blockbuster games and some other stuff, but I won’t let the facts get in the way of making a rather barbed point.
Whatever the next project turns out to be, Black Rock can be sure I’ll be at the front of the queue.
