Despite being on the down-low since releasing the surprisingly good and immensely under-rated Spec Ops: The Line, Yager Development has recently posted a job listing for Multiplayer Programmer on an “unannounced AAA project”.

There also indications that this project will be releasing for Xbox One and PS4 with applicants to “support a team embracing the latest technology on the next generation hardware”. The requirement for Xbox Live, PSN or Steamworks experience along with experience programming on consoles seems to indicate as much too.

It also seems that Yager will be working with Unreal Engine, with the listing stating that applicants “will work closely with engineers, content creators and designers to get the best out of Epic’s latest technology and extend it where needed to deliver our shared vision of the game.” Could that “latest technology” mean Unreal Engine 4?

Considering that Spec Ops: The Line’s multiplayer was considered tacked on and heavily panned by Yager itself, it would be interesting to see what is done with this latest title. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
