With the PS4 and next Xbox’s release likely to come sometime in the next few years, developers like Bethesda are starting to move away from current gen consoles to prepare for the ‘next gen’. Now, we’ve uncovered a new job listing that suggests LucasArts are working on an action adventure title for “future generation consoles”.
The job listing is titled ‘Senior Tools Engineer (Action/Adventure Title)’, and states (emphasis added):
The Senior Tools Engineer develops the essential tools and pipelines for game development on current and Future Generation console and PC hardware.
Another job from LucasArts, titled ‘Graphics Engineer (Action/Adventure Title)’, says (emphasis added):
In your role, you will be working on establishing the benchmark for in-game graphics on future console and PC hardware with a team of talented artists and engineers.
Considering most games take between 2-3 years to develop, this does beg the question: When will the PS4 release?
