Looks like the folks behind the Uncharted and The Last of Us series are going to explore new ground, as Naughty Dog opens hiring positions for its first standalone multiplayer game.
As listed in Naughty Dog’s job openings page, the positions of gameplay scripter and level designer have been posted — along with descriptions on what the work entails in creating a new standalone multiplayer game project.
“Embark on Naughty Dog’s newest adventure – the studio’s first standalone multiplayer game!”
“We’re seeking to bring the same level of ambition and quality of our signature, story-driven games to this unique multiplayer project. This is a rare opportunity to make an impact in your discipline and craft an experience that will be enjoyed and shared by millions of players around the world.”
While it’s too early to tell what exactly the standalone multiplayer project is, signs point to it being possibly the long awaited Factions multiplayer game for The Last of Us Part 2. While that isn’t confirmed yet, it could also mean that the project has evolved and something new will come of the work put into making this multiplayer experience for gamers. We’ll just have to wait and see what Naughty Dog has cooked up when they make future announcements on the project.
