Thatgamecompany seeking scalability engineer to help studio take online play "one step further" by building infrastructure to support hundreds of thousands of users.
Thatgamecompany's adventure game Journey--due out March 13--lets players buddy up over a network connection and work together to accomplish tasks. And according to a new job listing at the studio, the developer has bigger online plans in store for its next game.
"With our last game, Journey, we began incorporating online interactions into our projects, and we'd like to take it a step further on our next game," reads a line from the requisition.
The job listing goes on to reveal that the studio is planning a "full-scale online service," which will accommodate hundreds of thousands of users.
The job listing at thatgamecompany did not indicate what platform(s) the new project is being developed for. However, the studio's most recent projects--Journey, Flower, and Flow--have been exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

I like Journey, but i still think it takes itself a bit too seriousy...That being said, cant wait for tuesday
"However, the studio's most recent projects--Journey, Flower, and Flow--have been exclusive to the PlayStation 3." Flow was released on pc before it was released on the ps3, I don't think you can still download it but there's a web-based version available to play on the developer's website. looking forward to Journey, EU psn just got a ton of journey avatars and themes added to the store.
With 'Journey' thatgamecompany's contract with Sony is done, so they're free to develop for other systems. But I wouldn't be surprised if Sony outright buys them at this point.
