A series of new job advertisements published by WB Games San Diego they would reveal that the company is in the process of hiring staff for an "exciting new AAA, free-to-play, cross-platform game". But that's not all, given that the advertisements would have revealed that the new project in progress will not only exploit theU as a graphics engine, but it will be also available on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. Among the various figures sought we find that of Senior Combat Designer, Software Engineer, VFX Artist, Game Systems Designer, Senior Platform Engineer, Server Engineer, Direct of Product and Product Manager.
As can be seen from the full-bodied tweet of MauroNL, which you can easily retrieve at the bottom of the article, the project in question will exploit theAmazon GameLift. It is a managed service for distributing, operating and scaling dedicated game servers for session-based multiplayer titles. At the moment we don't know much about the new work in the pipeline at the studios of WB Games San Diego, even if the announcement related to the Combat Designer refers to skill balancing and multi-character move sets. In addition, the game in question is expected to contain several live in-game events, including some exclusive offers. We report in detail the words of MauroNL:
Warner Bros. Games San Diego has posted a dozen new job postings for a new project. It is described as “an exciting new AAA, free-to-play cross-platform game” aimed at “more platforms, including the new Gen-9 consoles”. The project will use Unreal Engine 4 and Amazon GameLift, a dedicated service for deploying, operating and scaling game servers.
There isn't much to say about the nature of the title, but the Combat Designer listing mentions "balanced abilities and multi-character movesets" and will contain "frequent live play events, with in-store offers". WBG San Diego is a studio that "will bring to life some of the most iconic characters and stories in free-to-play games".
