John Smedley of Sony Online Entertainment and Daybreak fame, and more recently, head of Amazon Game Studios in San Diego, tweeted the news that AGS has quite a few positions open for an unannounced game. The game does not have anything to do with the current MMO in production, New World, which is set to release next year.
The tweet points to several open positions, from a Senior Game Systems Designer, to a Narrative Designer and more. The positions require knowledge of the Unreal Engine, but few details have emerged regarding what exactly the project entails. The tweet requesting applicants is below:
