What’s interesting is that several positions in that list, including the likes of Concept Artist, Engine Engineer, Senior Animator, Character Artist, Lead Animator, Audio Programmer, and many, many others mention that the applicant will be helping the studio “realise the vision for an entirely new AAA open world action / RPG project”.
