Sleeping Dogs Developer Supposedly Working on Next-Gen Game
United Front Games, is seemingly in the middle of developing their next game – this time for next-gen consoles. The listing was detailed in a recent article on CVG, with United Front explicitly stating that they are, “looking for an experienced network programmer to work with our online team to develop the multiplayer features of our next gen console title.” The aforementioned experience was to come from, “solid C++ programming experience, understanding of network programming models, excellent communication ability, and a passion for creating world class online titles,” in addition to having worked on, “several console titles, worked with multiplayer middleware packages, and have experience with state replication, interpolation, bandwidth optimization, and knowledge of common multiplayer features such as matchmaking, invites, game lobbies, leader boards, stats, etc.”
The listing has been edited since, omitting the mention of “next gen.” No further details on the game were given. United Front Games developed the critically acclaimed Sleeping Dogs for Square Enix, which was released last year. The developer has also worked on such games as ModNation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting.
