Naughty Dog Hiring for “Next-Generation Console Title”, 3rd Person Action, Co-op, Multiplayer

June 3, 2013Written by Jason Dunning


After already featuring a Naughty Dog game twice today, we’re back to let you know that the two-team studio has added some more job listings (you get a free Sony CD each month by working there!), revealing a little bit more information about what is going on behind closed doors.

Previously, the developer made it known that they were hiring for co-op and multiplayer designers, which these new listings also reflect, but looking at the responsibilities for a Network Programmer, they involve “design and implementation of high level network code for next-generation console title.” It’s impossible to say at this moment what that next-generation game is, though if all the various openings are connected, it will include multiplayer, co-op, fun and engaging third-person action gameplay and levels.

Moving along to the Audio Programmer, their responsibilities include working “with the Audio Department and Advanced Technology Group to extend and enhance the audio capabilities for titles currently under development,” as well as creating “custom tools to unify the audio pipeline across multiple titles.” With The Last of Us scheduled to get three DLC packs, they could be referring to this and their next generation title, so don’t get too excited and think they’re working on a bunch of PS4 games all at once.

With E3 right around the corner, we’re very hopeful that something from Naughty Dog will be making an appearance at the big event from the team that finished Uncharted 3 in 2011, but considering TLOU is out on the Friday of E3 week it may be unlikely.

What do you hope Naughty Dog is working on right now? Let us know in the comments below.
