Ruffian hiring for “CryEngine 3″ experience

Monday, 9th January 2012 14:41 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Crackdown 2 developer Ruffian Games is on the hunt for someone with experience in regards to CryEngine 3, a job posting on the studio’s website has said.

The listing for senior engineer is looking for someone who’s worked with the Crytek-built graphics engine.

A LinkedIn profile belonging to lead level designer Sean Noonan makes mention of an unannounced title using CryEngine 3, as well as four other games, including a third-person action title with an external publisher and a multiplayer-led game.

The Dundee-based studio announced last year that “a number” of its projects had been signed to “some of the biggest publishers in the games industry.”

Ruffian, a developer consisting mostly of ex-RealTime Worlds vets, launched Crackdown 2 in July 2010.

Thanks, Digital Spy.

    They should make a Crackdown without all the comic superhero stupidity.

    Crackdown wouldn’t be as fun without the comic book stupidity, but if they make another one, they need to at least set it somewhere new, and change the levelling system a bit.

    Comic book superheroes style is the only reason I don’t like this game.

    I’m about 25 miles away from Dundee. I can assure you that I still think I’m too close.

    I hope the new game will be closer to crackdown and very far away as possible from crackdown 2, i did enjoy number two at some extent, but i did love crackdown, so Rufian please keep it close to crackdown as possible.
