Before Horizon Zero Dawn, and the upcoming Forbidden West, Guerrilla Games was a studio known for functioning on multiplayer together with one-player with the Killzone collection. The developer has given that shifted target to develop entirely one-participant projects, commencing with Horizon.
But this may be about to transform, as Guerrilla is looking to fill some roles inside the studio that will assistance it get back again in the multiplayer match. A number of career postings, noticed by Resetera, do not instantly say what task the studio is using the services of for, but strongly counsel it will have a significant multiplayer target.
This career advertisement for a senior social methods designer is wanting for somebody to construct engaging social options, and build appealing approaches for gamers to link with 1 yet another.
“Leveraging your background and knowledge in techniques style, you will ideate, make and share innovative characteristics to construct, engage, and nurture participant interactions and relationships,” the listing reads.
A different task opening, for a senior narrative methods designer, also wishes a candidate with know-how of creating narratives for online video games (as perfectly as solitary-participant).
Guerrilla isn’t going to precisely say irrespective of whether its several work adverts are for the same undertaking, or what the match may possibly even be – but the concept is intriguing even so.
It really is also curious to see no outright position ads for multiplayer-specific perform. Simon Larouche, who’s primarily recognized as the match director of Rainbow 6 Siege, returned to Guerrilla immediately after his stint at Ubisoft. Larouche is identified for his operate on multiplayer projects, so lots of assumed that is what he’s heading to be performing at Guerrilla.
You will find a likelihood, of study course, all of this will feed into a new Horizon match/ expertise (most likely Ghost of Tsushima Legends-type?), and could not automatically be a new IP.
As for Horizon Forbidden West, the recreation was a short while ago pushed back to February 18, 2023.
