Some Nonsense About ‘The Next Chapter of Cinematic Story-Telling’
The most recent Sony job post is out in the wild. Sadly, said posting utterly fails to reveal any hot, juicy new details about the company’s next generation of gaming hardware. Instead, we’re given hints that Sony is starting work on the next chapter of one of their flagship franchises. Perhaps something in the Uncharted series? The full listing is just below:
Sony PlayStation Visual Arts provides world-class content, development and services to Worldwide Studios. We offer a full-service production studio with an emphasis in art, animation, as well as previsualization, character creation, motion capture, software development, face/body scanning, tracking and solving. We are looking for a highly talented, motivated and creative Lead Character Artist for the next chapter of cinematic story-telling. Here is your chance to be a part of the multi-award winning team responsible for the cinematic performances in premier Sony PlayStation franchises like Uncharted, The Last of Us, Killzone, and other iconic series. Our team is always at the cutting edge of technology and partners with the industry’s best minds and companies: Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studios, Guerrilla Games, Japan Studios, and other Sony PlayStation first-party studios. This is your opportunity to work closely with game and film industry professionals from all over the world and under one roof!
Aside from buzzwords like ‘next chapter’ and ‘cutting edge,’ it looks like we’ll learn nothing more about the coveted PS5 this day. Of course, Sony’s planned absence from the entire gaming news cycle next June already suggests that maybe there is no news to be had? At least there’s more of their excellent first-party work coming in the future.
