IN A NUTSHELL:
- Naughty Dog is looking for an employee to design the economy and character progression systems for a multiplayer game;
- It's unclear if the announcement is for an entirely new title or The Last of Us 2's multiplayer mode.
Naughty Dog, the studio responsible for the blockbuster Uncharted and The Last of Us series, may be working on a title that belongs to the category of "live-service games" (hames designed with multiplayer in mind, and consistently developed to maintain player interest for as long as possible). The source of information is a job offer published on the company's official website.
The new employee will deal with "design, implementation and refinement of elements of the game's economy and character progression systems", and therefore is expected to have experience in developing similar things, as well as "extensive knowledge of multiplayer action games".
It's worth noting that the announcement doesn't have to be tied to an entirely new title - it could just as well be about The Last of Us: Part II's multiplayer mode. We will report of further developments.
