Many new job listings have just gone live and cover fields like a Lead Systems Designer, a Senior Game Designer, a Technical Designer, a Technical Artist, an Environment Concept Artist, and a Creatures Concept Artist.
From these listings, the Creatures Concept Artists is the most interesting as it suggests that 4A Games won't be diverting completely from what they are known for, such as the creatures of post-apocalyptic Russia in the Metro series.
Deeper into the applications, the listings say that the game is a new AAA IP. The team is creating the visual style for the project, nailing down mechanics, and planning for the world to have a high level of believability and immersion. The game will also use the 4A games engine.
It is also revealed that the game will be an FPS, with listings asking for someone with a passion for the genre.
All of this sounds incredibly exciting and it will be great to see what 4A Games can do with a brand new world. The studio is also working on the next Metro game, as well as collaborating with Saber Interactive on a multiplayer title set in the universe.
