IGN reader NKilburne hooked us up with a couple of new job listings posted by Sony and SuperBot Entertainment today, indicating that the developer is looking for new talent. While it’s possible that this for future DLC, the possibility is also strong that SuperBot Entertainment is jumping right into creating a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars.
One job listing is for an Art Director. “A project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished project,” the job listing reads, in part. “The Art Director is responsible for defining this vision, guiding the creation of art assets from concept through completion while helping develop new technology to facilitate this and maintain proper performance.” The Art Director “will also represent SuperBot to external vendors, IP holders, and the publisher, explaining and demonstrating the vision and how individual characters, environments, or other assets will fit.”
The second job listing is for a Game Designer/Implementer, responsible for “designing, implementing, iterating on, and reviewing gameplay, game modes and systems,” and other tasks.
Now, it could very well be that SuperBot Entertainment is hiring for future DLC support, but there’s little doubt that Sony desires PlayStation All-Stars to be a series and not just a one-off. Plus, the hiring of a fresh Art Director and Game Designer for DLC only would be a little strange. Either way, the news is good for PlayStation fans, because these future hires indicate a long track of DLC support for the original, or -- hopefully -- a full-blown sequel.
