Arkane Studios Hiring for Next Gen Projects, Possibly Prey 2
Or could this be the first sign of Dishonored 2?
Dishonored developer Arkane Studios has posted on its official blog that it is looking to hire for next gen projects, with some roles taking place at Austin (which is reportedly developing Prey 2 from scratch) and Lyon.
“With Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition ready for release in October, Arkane Studios is ramping up on what comes next — next-gen development. While we can’t talk about what’s on the horizon, we wanted to let prospective game developers know that they’re already building up their team for the next project.”
In Austin, Arkane is looking to hire a Lead Tech Programmer and Tools Programmer not to mention several art-based positions that have become available. Check out the full position list for Lyon here.
While a case could be made for Prey 2 being in development in Austin, would it be too far fetched to assume that a sequel to Dishonored is in development at Lyon? One can certainly hope.
