Guerrilla Games’ New PS4 Game’s Audio Will Be Done By a Four Man Team; Studio Has 200 Employees Now
If you’re curious about Guerrilla Games upcoming PS4 title, which is rumored to be an open world RPG, a few more snippets of information have been shared by a new career opportunity ad looking for an Audio Lead.
According to the ad, the candidate will be responsible for all the audio of the new game, meaning music, voice work and sound effects. He will lead a four man team, described as “very high level.”
The ad actually includes notes from Guerrilla’s Human Resources manager Delano Lobman, who says:
Good effects make the game believable, improving the gameplay experience.
Interestingly, there are mentions of waterfalls, gunshots and the voice of a heavy-set genera (which needs to be suitably deep) as examples, even if there’s no way to know if those examples actually pertain to the new game or they’re just generic examples.
We also get an update on the studio’s size: Guerrilla Games now employs 200 people of 25 different nationalities.
Interestingly enough, the ad also includes an idea of retribution, which is actually rarely done in this kind of post. The new audio lead will earn between 65,000 and 85,000 Euros per year before taxes, which translates to between $88,000 and $115,000.
As a funny note of color, it’s actually mentioned that the developer is seeking the new Audio Lead because the employee that previously held the position went overseas to follow his loved one. What wouldn’t one do for love…
