Remedy Is Hiring for a Multiplayer Development Team
Correction (10/6/2018): This news article originally stated that Control would have multiplayer. However, according to a Remedy employee, this isn’t the case at all so the article has been edited to reflect this info.
“That’s not happening. Control is a singleplayer only experience,” said Vida Starčević, the Associate Community Manager at Remedy, to the gaming website, Expansive, when asked about the game having multiplayer.
Remedy Entertainment, the developers of the upcoming 2019 game Control, are currently hiring developers for a “Vanguard” multiplayer team. The two jobs Remedy is hiring for this Vanguard team are gameplay designer & senior gameplay programmer.
The objective of Vanguard is “to challenge conventions and to prototype and ship new types of ongoing live multiplayer game experiences”, according to Remedy’s official website. The team will be small and “act with a startup mentality within the stability of a large company,” said Remedy.
Those who wish to apply for the current job openings at Vanguard will need experience with the Unreal 4 engine, per the job description.
These job listings are somewhat interesting since Remedy isn’t known for developing multiplayer games. The last released game of theirs that had multiplayer was 1996’s Death Rally and ever since they’ve usually released singleplayer-only games such as the first two Max Payne games, 2010’s Alan Wake, Quantum Break, and Control.
