inFamous: Third Son.
Sony developer Sucker Punch has had a fresh round of layoffs some time back in August, that brought the total studio strength down to about 80 developers, and it appears that they are gearing up to beef it up again, as they ready themselves for a new project.
How do we know this? Why, the same way we always know these things- because our friends at DualShockers seem to have an eye for every time a Sony studio posts a new job listing.
Currently, it appears, Sucker Punch is looking for a new IT Administrator. The job listing reads:
“Sucker Punch is looking for a proactive IT Administrator who has passion for leveraging technology and software to solve problems and maximize our studio’s ability to create amazing AAA games. We are a collection of 80 artists, designers and programmers in need of an IT Administrator to oversee all aspects of our information technology. Top to bottom – from our 128 core build cluster and NetApp filer through to 80 Windows 7 workstations and PlayStation 4 development kits, you’re responsible for managing all technology needs in our studio. Procurement, key systems availability, trouble shooting, and security are all in your portfolio. The IT Administrator also interacts with all members of the team, and should have excellent communication skills, maintain a key sense of professionalism, be goal oriented, self-driven, and have a positive attitude. Sucker Punch prides itself on being a studio where the work is dynamic, challenging, and rewarding, and employees have the ability to have a big impact our games and studio as individuals.”
The job listing gives us insight into what Sucker Punch is like, although, sadly enough, it doesn’t tell us much about their new project.
Still, considering that they just got done with inFamous: Second Son and inFamous: First Light, it will probably be a while before we hear something from them again.
