Bethesda hiring for “unannounced” game on “future-gen” hardware

Monday, 27th February 2012 18:27 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Bethesda’s fully come out and announced it’s hiring for a yet to be announced project on “future generation” hardware.

The listing, which is for Todd Howard’s Bethesda Game Studios team, is looking for a “future generation console programmer” to work with “cutting-edge technology” for the project.

Those applying will need at least five years experience and shipped a number of titles, as well as “extensive experience” on programming and optimizing for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Bethesda Game Studios’ last project was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim last November, with the next big project expected to be Fallout 4.

Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines told VG247 last January in an interview that BGS would “take advantage” of the Creation Engine used to power Skyrim.

    I’m sorry, but as much as i love Skyrim, that engine can’t go on for years. For a game this size it’s really good, but i don’t see this engine going on for really long.

    I am really becoming sick of all those next gen rumors.

    @2 I don’t think it’s a rumor any more,it is bound to happen if not next year then 2014 for sure and any decent game developing studio is (or should be)thinking at least that much ahead.

    @2 It’s rumour no more now, what with Bethesda screaming it from the rooftop earlier on Facebook and Twitter.

    If you look at the decent games they take an average of 2years to be made so most studios are probably starting to work on the nextgen stuff. As a customer you want some decent games from day one, not all the rushed crap that sells just cuz its on nextgen.
    Plus they are going to want to show off the nextgen stuff at E3 this yr or next, no point showing off a console when you go no big games for it to show.

    Fallout 4 – A next gen Fallout game around the launch window of one of the next gen consoles would make me have to buy one.

    I can’t speak for other people, but there are exceptions. All this stuff about Bethesda games being unplayable is the biggest bullshit i’ve heard. Yes Skyrim was buggy at launch (although i honestly encountered little problems) but hell if it wasn’t MUCH better than Oblivion at launch. Unplayable my ass.

    If there’s gonna be a Bethesda RPG at launch for a next gen console….OMFG! But i don’t see that happening. Console launches always start kinda…i don’t know..average. Not that 360′s launch was bad with NFS Most Wanted, COD 2 and Kameo.

    I want to see a de-bugged Skyrim style game set in a scaled down U.S. in the late 1800′s like Civil War to just before WWI. Similar to Red Dead Redemption but with a better version of Skyrim’s engine and better graphics. Who of you would play that game?
