Maxis have started to advertise for an experienced Graphics Engineer to join the team over in California. Furthermore the chosen candidate will work “with a highly talented and experienced team on an upcoming triple-A simulation style game.” What game could this be? Who knows.
While not required the company see it as a plus if the candidate has a “knowledge of the Xbox 360 and PS3 rendering architectures and APIs” leading us to believe that console versions of whatever is being developed will be on the way too. While big titles like The Sims and the SimCity series were met with praise worldwide their later creation, Spore fairly a little worse despite a lot of pre-release hype. Hopefully their next title will recapture the quality of Maxis’ earlier efforts.
