Looks like things are afoot over at Ninja Theory, the UK studio who brought us Heavenly Sword and the recent DmC: Devil May Cry, is now looking to fill a good number of positions for what is a new AAA title.
Recently, the studio advertised on Twitter that they are currently hiring. For what positions? Quite a few. A peek at their career page shows openings for the following:
- Technical Director
- QA Lead
- Senior Designer
- Senior Animator
- FX Artist
- Junior Animator
- Lead Character Artist
- Senior Character Artist
- Junior Character Artist
Not surprisingly, rumors of what that might be are already popping up. Perhaps the most plausible is the possibility of the new game being on Unreal Engine 4.
Under the Lead Character Artist description, listed as a "desirable" skill is "Experience with UDK." For Technical Director, Ninja Theory also wrote, "Demonstrating innovation and understanding of entire game quality to a AAA standard in all disciplines."
The AAA standard is also listed under the Senior Designer description, as well as a little tidbit about "experience working on a product featuring shooting, melee combat or stealth mechanics."
