The number of studios adding to their teams is increasing every week. It’s nice to see some positive jobs news in game development and it’s interesting to see how these development studios advertise to work on projects which their publishers and platform holders are still either denying or ignoring.
This time, it’s Remedy (Alan Wake) who are hiring more than 20 people to work on “an unannounced project targeted at future generation consoles”. Sounds like they’re about to start making games for that console Microsoft isn’t announcing soon. Worth noting that they mention “future consoles” too. Is that a sign that they might be moving away from Microsoft-only releases?
They’re also hiring for several other roles, including a Graphics Software Engineer, a Build and Tools Software Engineer and a Game Artist – all roles which would very much be kept busy in the early stages of building a new game engine and pitching new game ideas. You know, new games for that console that doesn’t exist?
Of course, maybe they’re both just working on something for the Wii U…
