Spec Ops: The Line dev making next-gen game
Yager signs licensing deal with Epic for AAA title powered by Unreal Engine 4 that may include microtransactions, cross-platform play.
Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager has signed a deal with Epic Games to license the Unreal Engine 4 to power a AAA next-generation title. The Berlin, Germany-based Yager is the first European independent studio to license the technology.
Yager's mystery project will be unveiled in the coming months. No further information about the game, or the terms of the deal, were specified.
Though Yager has not divulged its new project yet, job listings at the studio hint that the game may feature microtransactions and cross-platform play. A desirable candidate for a "monetization designer" will have "in-depth knowledge of cross-platform games and microtransaction based business models."
In addition, this person will "seek out and incorporate feedback from the team, QA, and playtesters throughout the production in order to maximize monetization whilst minimizing negative impact on game experience."
Additional job listings seek developers with experience on real-time strategy and role-playing games, as well as first-person action titles.
