Ninja Theory Searching for Protégés, Working on Blockbuster Game

Posted by Sammy Barker

DmC developer's latest is probably for PS4

Fresh from irritating the entirety of the Internet with its reimagining of Devil May Cry, divisive developer Ninja Theory is recruiting for a brand new blockbuster project. Last week, the Cambridge-based outfit revealed that it was on the lookout for fresh blood, and it’s since followed up with a slew of job listings on its official website.

According to the senior designer role, the firm is looking for somebody with “experience working on a product featuring shooting, melee combat, or stealth mechanics”. It adds that candidates must have “knowledge of the game design development process gained from working on multiple shipped titles, ideally of a recognised AAA standard.”

The other roles make similar requests, with the lead character artist page specifically listing experience with the Unreal Development Kit. The numerous references to Epic’s graphics technology have prompted some to assume that the company’s next project will run on Unreal Engine 4, which would make sense considering Ninja Theory’s catalogue.

Of course, there’s no hint as to what the project could be. The most obvious answer would be a DmC sequel, but we’re not sure that the title sold well enough to warrant another entry. Some pundits have taken the “stealth mechanics” reference to mean some kind of Metal Gear Solid remake, but that seems extremely unlikely. We guess that we’ll just have to wait and see.

DmC: Devil May Cry 2 White Hair Edition

(actually i did enjoy DmC and didn't have a problem with new Dante, hes just not as cool as the original Dante that's all)

It is time for something new. I really didn't like the new direction they went with DMC. But DMC1 and 3 are classics.

Aren't they supposed to be making Heavenly Sword 2?

Or is that a given at this point and this is something else?

I wouldn't mind an Enslaved sequel, great game until the lame quickly over ending, but I know that will never happen. I'm playing Darksiders 2 now and Death certainly moves like Monkey. Everything else is Starfox Adventures (which itself should have been transformed into a Zelda game instead of a Starfox game, which it clearly isn't). Vigil must have been Rare fans.

I'd love it to be Heavenly Sword 2 but I've given up on that ever happening. Sony already has God of War which is more well known and a sure bet to sell.
