Killzone 3 was a successful venture for the talented team at Guerrilla Games and it is only obvious that they are working on a new game. And if my memory serves right, Herman Hulst had confirmed last year that right after Killzone 3 they will be working on a new IP.
Now being a member of this industry, I am also a member of an industry site where I found out that Guerrilla Games are looking for a number of positions. A few of them are for an AI programmer and Senior Tech Programmer. Some excerpts from the JD are below:
Senior Tech Programmer:
“As a Senior Tech Programmer, you analyze complex requirements and programming structures and turn them into simple, effective designs with even better implementations. You’re very ambitious, and even though you like tried-and-tested methods you’re not afraid to try something radical or new every now and then. Your skills are in the fields of graphics, audio, memory management, streaming, optimization or any combination thereof. The systems you produce are efficient and easy to maintain, and they do exactly what the end-user wants (regardless of whether that end user is a 3D artist, a sound director, a game designer or another coder). You encourage other people to be ambitious as well, but you always make sure to avoid unnecessary risks.”
“AI programmers design and implement new features for the AI systems. AI programmers also assist the design department in creating game play by creating and modifying NPC behavior”
We also reported that Killzone 4 may be the next game by Guerrilla Games, but then again it could go either way.
What do you guys think? Do you think the new IP is well under production or are we looking at the inevitable Killzone 3? Let us know in the comments below.
