The company is currently looking for development support, an environmental artist, a lead character artist, lead online programmer, a procedural technical artist, plus many more. Taking a deeper look into the job listings (opens in new tab) reveals that the project the team is working on could have some kind of procedural world element to it as well as rely heavily on some kind of online component.
As a member of PlayStation Studios – alongside God of War studio Sony Santa Monica and Ghosh of Tsushima studio Suckerpunch – the PlayStation London Studios job listings say that the successful applicant will have lots of opportunities to work collaboratively and receive wider support from “our sister studios like Insomniac, Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Media Molecule to name a few.”
So far we don’t have much information to go off of to try and figure out what the London-based team is beginning to work on. However, taking a look at its previous projects, there’s a number of VR and party games on offer, so it’s entirely possible that the studio could be making something similar PS5 while leaning on online rather than local multiplayer.
