Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucher Punch Productions is apparently working on a new multiplayer game, according to a recent job listing [via Comicbook].
Titled “PROGRAMMING – Multiplayer/Network Programmer”, the listing can currently be sound on Sucker Punch’s website, which details information on the job and its requirements. Here’s a snippet of the job’s description:
“Sucker Punch, the studio that created Ghost of Tsushima and the multiplayer Legends Mode, is looking for a Multiplayer/Network Programmer to join our studio in Bellevue, WA.
“Our talented multiplayer designers create awesome game team experiences, and you’ll be pivotal in bringing that creativity to life in a spectacular multiplayer game. We are looking for the whole package: someone with the necessary skills to investigate, define, implement and deploy networking features that support a smooth and engaging cooperative game play experience.”
While the job could be related to Ghost of Tsushima’s “Legends Mode”, the description’s phrasing suggests that the job is required for an entirely new project. Using the phrase “spectacular multiplayer game” indicates that the company is working on a new experience, one that features multiplayer mechanics at its core.
As for which kind of multiplayer will feature in the game, the listing states that it’ll be a “smooth and engaging cooperative” experience.
Analysing job listings is more speculative than affirmative, but they do give us a good insight into what developers are working on.
If Sucker Punch is working on a new multiplayer game, it’s likely very early on in development. More often than not, video game projects evolve and change over time. Therefore, the game Sucker Punch currently has in mind could be completely different by the time it’s announced.
Hopefully, Sucker Punch is putting its talents to good use. However, until something is officially announced, it’s best to take this job listing with a hearty pinch of salt.
