The PS5 could already have its first blockbuster game, as Avalanche Studios hints at what’s to come for the next-gen.
While the PS5 release date remains a mystery, Just Cause developer Avalanche has provided further proof that the next-generation of consoles is coming.
And it looks like Avalanche will be at the forefront of the new generation of PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
The developer is advertising for staff to work on its next-gen sandbox engine.
“Avalanche Studios is currently looking for a senior programmer to join a small team developing our next generation open world/sandbox multiplayer engine,” reads an Avalanche job post.
The developer also shed some light on the kind of things it will be prioritizing for its next-gen game engine.
Based on the job ad, destructible environments will play a big part in the next generation of multiplayer games.
“As a Senior Multiplayer Programmer, you will influence the architecture and drive the implementation of all multiplayer technology in the Avalanche Apex engine.
“This is a great opportunity to work with some of the most complex and rewarding challenges in game development today; Open worlds, sandbox gameplay and highly destructible multiplayer environments.
“As with most multiplayer development, a keen sense of fun gameplay and that 6th sense for what gives the perfect “feeling” are both key aspects of this role.”
