According to the job descriptions people discovered at SegmentNext, the upcoming PlayStation 5 online game from PlayStation London Studio will feature procedural worlds and content.
London Studio actively began recruiting for its mysterious PS5 IP back in April and posted a number of new vacancies last week. In the absence of any information about the game, fans checked the job descriptions to gather clues.
“Use your knowledge of procedural content generation to provide efficient, iterative pipelines for generating AAA environment art, material, and other art content,” says the job description of a procedural technical artist. In particular, the role requires that the incumbent has “good knowledge and experience of Houdini for generating procedural worlds” and experience of “developing technical arts including procedural content, shaders, tools and optimization for games”.
London Studio previously said that their next game has “great potential” and the new job descriptions make his ambitions known.
“We are looking for a lead character artist for our PlayStation first party studio,” says another ad. “This is a unique opportunity to be at the center of creating and bringing the next PlayStation icon (s) to life.”
London Studios is promoting the open positions by reminding applicants that it is part of PlayStation Studios, where there are plenty of opportunities to work with developers such as Insomniac Games, Guerrilla Games, Naughty Dog and Media Molecule.
“New starters will arrive at the perfect time to help shape our plans for a project we care deeply about,” wrote London Studio.
We will let our readers know when we have more information about the project.[Source: London Studio via SegmentNext]
