Dishonored, Prey Dev Arkane Hiring For Unannounced AAA Project

Several job listings at Arkane Studios paint a fuzzy picture of the developer's next game.


Developer Arkane Studios is hiring for some unannounced AAA title. This comes not long after the Dishonored and Prey creator was scooped up by Microsoft, along with other ZeniMax Media studios for $7.5 billion.

According to a Twitter thread by user MauroNL3, a number of positions are open at Arkane's Austin, Texas and Lyon, France locations. The availabilities run the gamut from character animation engineer and engine programmer to systems designer and tools programmer. Many of the positions hint at what Arkane plans to work on next.

Now Playing: Deathloop "Two Birds One Stone" Gameplay Trailer | PS5 Showcase

The graphics engineer position in Austin is looking for someone with Unreal Engine 4 familiarity, signaling a possible engine change for the studio. Most of Arkane's games, with the exception of Prey, run on a form of id Tech, a proprietary engine developed by id Software.

Arkane's next game could also feature some form of online multiplayer, as well as live-service elements akin to Destiny 2 or Fortnite. The senior gameplay engineer role states that someone with "expertise with network and online features" would be a plus but is not required, while the studio also wants a server engineer with "experience in a 'Live' environment (ongoing support of product after launch)."

Deathloop, a first-person shooter about an assassin stuck in a time loop, is Arkane Studios' next announced game and launches next year on PC and PlayStation 5.
