A series of new job listings have been posted up by Warner Bros. Games San Diego, which reveals the company is in the process of staffing up for an ‘exciting new AAA, free-to-play, cross-platform game.’ The project will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
There’s an absolute truckload of jobs on offer, including but not limited to Senior Combat Designer, Software Engineer, VFX Artist, Game Systems Designer, Senior Platform Engineer, Server Engineer, Direct of Product and Product Manager.
Of particular interest is some snippets of info garnered from the listing for the Combat Designer, which reveals the candidate will be responsible for “balanced abilities and move sets across multiple characters” and includes “frequent live game events and store offers.” It also mentions that the studio “will bring some of the most iconic characters and stories to life in free-to-play games.”
That’s about all we know so far, although the game is obviously in its infancy as Warner Bros. is still in the hiring process. Still, sounds exciting, right?
