By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 17:24 GMT


Despite recent lay-offs, Crystal Dynamics is hiring for a Senior Art Director for “one of the most prestigious AAA franchises in the industry”, according to a job post on Gamasutra.

According to the listing:

“Crystal Dynamics has a rare opening for a Senior Art Director on one of the most prestigious AAA franchises in the industry. We are looking for an exceptional talent to bring onto the team and continue the long tradition of visually stunning and award winning titles from Crystal Dynamics.”

Job requirements include having shipped a “minimum of 2 video games as Art Director demonstrating a high visual bar”, seven years in the industry, a proven track record of “working with an established AAA franchise”, and next-gen console expertise.

We have put a word in with Crystal Dynamics for further information.

Who knows. This could be the reinvented Tomb Raider game Ian Livingstone was chatting about last month.
