Job listing calls BioShock developer’s next game a “AAA multiplayer title”

According to a job listing posted on Gamasutra, 2K Boston’s next game will be a huge departure from its single player-focused descent into madness, BioShock. Pulling a complete 180, the game will instead be an “action-packed AAA multiplayer title.”

“The BioShock team is betting big on multiplayer and plans to stay at the top of the charts– we’re careful about the problems we tackle, innovative in our approach, solid in our implementation, and we polish the heck out of everything we do,” reads the listing.

“Right now we’re looking for an exceptional individual to direct the development of this multiplayer experience through a combination of leadership, design, coding, and daily problem solving on the gameplay networking and backend server components.”

As of now, three platforms can barely be seen amongst a forest of question marks: PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Not surprising, since the title runs on a version of Epic’s Unreal Engine 3.

Somehow, we doubt 2K will have much trouble filling this position.
