Days Gone Developer Is Hiring For New AAA Game

Sony developer, Bend Studio, is hiring for their next project which is presumably headed to the upcoming next-gen console, the PlayStation 5. There’s no word yet on what the mystery game might be, but we could be getting a sequel to the controversially-received 2019 title, Days Gone.

As spotted by PushSquare, Bend Studio is looking to hire a Senior Staff Technical Artist for a new AAA game. The job description reads as follows: “We are seeking a Senior Staff Technical Artist who will contribute to the artistic vision and development of a AAA product with a specialized focus on creating character articulation assets, art tools, techniques, and processes for game development.”

Whether or not this is for a sequel to Days Gone, or for a new project entirely, is not yet clear.

Days Gone, the open-world post-apocalyptic story of two brothers in a zombie-filled wasteland, has definitely found its audience, though it failed to reach the heights of previous Sony exclusives including God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man.

The game received mixed reviews when it first released, receiving equal parts love and criticism from players and critics. Despite its shortcomings, it’s actually a really fun game and it’s more than worthy of a sequel in my humble opinion.

Earlier this year, a sequel was teased by Days Gone’s director, Jeff Ross, over on Twitter. Ross responded to a fan’s request for a sequel, writing simply: “Stay tuned.”

Late last year, Sony Bend studio director Chris Reece also teased the potential revival of the game in an interview with Games Radar.

“This is a world that we want to keep breathing more life into, and explore many, many different avenues,” he told the publication. “So who knows, we’ll see!”

As Days Gone celebrates its one year anniversary, could we be seeing a game announcement anytime soon? With E3 2020 now off the cards, anything could happen when it comes to new game announcements!
