Unannounced PS4 Game in The Works at Guerrilla Cambridge: Featuring Complex Environments, Varied Architecture

by on May 16, 2014 10:38 AM 41

Looks like Sony Computer Entertainment Europe promoted Killzone: Mercenaries developer Guerrilla Cambridge to the big leagues, as the studio has been explicitly revealed today to be at work on an unannounced PS4 game, as revealed by a new career opportunity ad seeking a Senior Environment Artist.

Below you can read the ad with the relevant parts bolded:

_______________

Guerrilla Games’ Cambridge Studio is looking for a talented Senior Environment Artist to join their world-class art team working on PS4. We’re looking for someone to work as a key member of a small motivated team of artists to construct game environments based on approved concept art. Come and work with a great pool of talent in an equally great city.

 Portfolio:

Your portfolio should:

  • Demonstrate both hard and soft surface 3D modelling techniques.
  • Demonstrate PS3/PS4 quality texturing (diffuse, normal and specular maps).
  • Demonstrate the ability to UV complex objects efficiently.
  • Demonstrate your ability to create multiple complex environments, interior and exterior.
  • Demonstrate the ability to recreate multiple architectural styles.
  • Show at least one environment demonstrating strong creative vision, an eye for detail, composition and visual story telling.
  • Demonstrate at least one environment created within strict performance budgets.

It would also be beneficial if your portfolio:

  • Contains 2D environment concept paints or sketches.

Candidate

We’re interested in hearing from you if:

  • You are able to work within a predefined art style as part of a multidisciplinary team.
  • You are able to deliver work to a very high level of quality within fixed time constraints.
  • You show enthusiasm, drive and the ability to learn new processes.
  • You are able to balance technical, gameplay and artistic constraints, and are able to work collaboratively on reaching a solution between disciplines.
  • You are able work with a high level of autonomy but are also comfortable working with feedback and take direction effectively.
  • You can apply lateral thinking to find innovative creative solutions.
  • You are able to present, discuss and critique your own work as well as that of others within the team, providing sensitive, yet effective feedback and direction.
  • You can draw inspiration from a variety of sources outside of games.
  • You have development experience on multiple shipped games.
  • You have development experience on recent AAA console games.
  • You have a thorough working knowledge of modern shader models.
  • You have a broad knowledge of current and past video game environments.
  • You have an interest in videogames.
  • You can demonstrate high proficiency in the use of Photoshop.

It would be beneficial but not required if:

  • You are an experienced Maya user.
  • You show high proficiency in the use of zBrush or Mudbox.
  • You have scripting experience in Mel or Python.

_______________

This is the first time we get explicit confirmation that Guerrilla Cambridge is working on a PS4 game, and we also get a few elements on what its environmental design will entail, featuring complex environments and multiple architectural styles.

The game will also probably be an AAA one, since that kind of experience is considered beneficial, and the the use of Maya, zBrush and Mudbox possibly indicates a title with a high level of graphical glitz, as those tools are normally preferred for complex 3D models.

Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the new game, but we might hear about it at E3 in less than a month.

      • They Call Me Senpai

        Proof, my good sir.

        • JonathanisPrimus

          They’re a small(er) studio that shipped a game last year, and supported said game months after release.

      Polyphony Digital- Gran turismo 7? though now that i think about it it is too early for another Gran Turismo 7? so maybe they’ll announce it and then release it 2015/2016? maybe? i don’t know.

      and that is what i know so far for them so lets add it all up….

      21 Exclusive titles being announced at E3 maybe by Sony. according to what we know so far. 22 if you count Gran Turismo 7 thought i doubt it will come to E3 this year and possibly Infamous Second Son DLC #GreatnessAwaits

      • YroBalboa

        I need more 3rd partie exclusivs

      • http://E-mpire.com/ Omnistalgic

        lovely wish…but not even half of that is going to be announced at one event…

        The Last Guardian, Uncharted 2 new AAA IP’s and a sequel to Demon’s Soul is more than enough to crash every forum online. Sony doesn’t need to show every in-house studio’s game in one event, but I appreciate the info.

      • http://people.ign.com/oskitake Oskitake

        It certainly would be cool but lets be realistic, maybe half of these studios arent even working on a project for themselves, maybe they are working altogether with the other studios to bring an extremely good game on the table.

        Besides nothing is confirmed so they could even be working in something for 2018 or 2019 ; lets just better not expect a lot and get the surprise at E3 than to expect a lot and get dissappointed.

        • SageShinigami

          They wouldn’t all be announced at once but Shuhei said every studio was working on their own PS4 game.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Yeah, I’m sure they’ll announce a Monster Hunter beyond trash tier content like Frontier prior to MH4G’s launch on 3DS. I’m sure Capcom will blow all of that money on a console game that will sell a fraction of what the handheld games do.

    • GoldenBay

      Okay, are you telling me that a new Monster Hunter game could be coming to PS4?.
      That would be just Awesome!!!

  • http://www.420NoScopeBlazeitYoloSwag.com TehPowerzOfTehCloudz

    Hope its MediEvil 3 :D

  • The Real Rick Grimes

    Seems like Sony is going to be announcing a new IP every 5 minutes at E3! Am I wrong for being turned on by that?

      Nah, Cambridge just started with their new project. There is nothing to be shown in the near future!

      • Negi Springfield

        But it cannot be denied that most of their 1ST Party Studio`s are making games for the PS4 ! This is awesome !

        • JonathanisPrimus

          Awesome if you own a PS4. Depressing if you own a Vita.

          • Negi Springfield

            Not really depressing about owning a VITA , It`s getting games , Tales game , Freedom Wars , Gravity Rush 2 and more.

    • Gamist

      This will be me when the conference starts. With snacks, of course.

    • MrSec84 .

      Guerrilla likely has more than their new IP in production, they have 270 staff at that studio.
      They likely have another Killzone or something else in the works so at least (1) game there, more likely 2 now.

      Dinosaurum games is a new 2nd party Russian Studio that is also working on a new IP, called (2)Without Memory.

      Insomniac could have a new game in the works, they have over 200 staff, so alongside working on Sunset Overdrive for XBox One they could easily manage a new (3)Ratchet & Clank, that series is getting a movie, so I’d bet money on a new PS4 game coming for the series.
      The film’s coming in 2015, so the game could be too.
      Perhaps a next gen (so maybe a 4th game, though it doesn’t have to be made by Insomniac) Resistance game.

      Sucker Punch probably also has a new project in the works, they have stated they intend to doing more with Infamous.
      (5)Sly Cooper’s got a new film coming in 2016, so perhaps this will have a game announced at E3 next year.

      There’s also Firesprite, which are a new 1st party Sony studio, made up of ex Sony Liverpool staff.
      They made (6)Wipeout.

      Don’t forget Polyphony Digital for a new (7)Gran Turismo, Kaz did say last September that the PS4 version of the next GT game could only take the team a year to make, because of PS4′s hardware being easier to develop for.

      All in all, including what you listed above & what I’ve listed there are at least 20 potential AAA games that Sony’s studios & some 2nd party partners could be making for PS4.
      25 games if everything we’ve listed is in the works.

      PS4 should have a full line-up of games releasing after E3 & throughout the next couple of years.

  • superkarma

    Wow, a lot of Sony’s first parties are working on things for the PS4. Excellent news. As always, Sony never lets us down with its exclusives.

  • EdwardKenwayAC

    im an experienced maya user :(

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Remember when Sony made games for Vita?

    • They Call Me Senpai

      Yeah, they still do.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        Nah, they really don’t.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Remember when Vita sold well? Me neither.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        Remember when Sony abandoned PS3 after its hideous start? Me neither.

        Vita sells okay in Japan (better than PS4 at least), but I suspect this TGS it’ll be thrown under the bus for another PS4 show.

  • http://www.dorqs.com/ Pace

    They are porting Killzone Mercenary to ps3/ps4.

  • Престон Зим

    I just want another MediEvil or a remake of the first two games like what oddworld inc and JAW are doing with the oddworld francise
