We already knew that Sony London Studio is currently working on an unspecified number of unannounced PS4 games, and today we learn more on one of them thanks to a new career opportunity ad seeking a Senior Artist.

Here’s an excerpt of the ad, with the relevant details bolded:

____________________

Based in Soho, London, we are part of Sony Computer Entertainment’s worldwide development studios and are currently looking for an experienced and highly motivated Senior Artist to join a small, dynamic game development team working on an exciting next generation PS4 title.

We are looking for a senior artist with next-generation experience, who will not only produce environment and vehicle assets to a superb quality but will also work as a ‘go to’ artist in the art department. You will help to solve the exciting challenges facing the development team.

Working with the Lead Artist and programming team, you will help to define, plan, and deliver solutions for the art team to achieve the visual goals set by the project. The role will include researching and developing new techniques for next-generation art creation.

This is a great opportunity for you to join our team. Through supporting the Lead Artist and working together with the rest of the art team, you will have an important role to play in the creation of this next-generation title.

The role will involve:
The creation of environments and vehicle assets to a superb level of quality.
Collaborate with the Lead Artist to help deliver the creative vision of the game.
By working with the graphics programmers and Lead Artist, help deliver our next-generation lighting solutions.

So there you have it: the game will involve vehicles, while it’s not yet clear if it’ll be an actual racing game or another kind of experience that will include driving. The mention of “superb quality” assets possibly hints to a title in which vehicles will be crucial to gameplay.

Of course we’ll keep you updated on any further information that will emerge, but for now we know that Sony has some more vehicle-based fun in store for us.
