Batman: Arkham Knight developers, Rocksteady Studios, is currently hiring for the next game they are developing.
Rocksteady Studios announced on Twitter: “We’re hiring for roles in our London Studio! Network / Engine Coders & VFX wanted”
A NeoGAF user noted that some of the positions require people that have experience with multiplayer games.
Lead Network Programmer: “Rocksteady Studios is looking to add to its family of staff. Reporting to the Technical Director, the Lead Network Programmer will manage a growing team of network coders and drive through all aspects of an ‘AAA’ game’s requirements in accordance with the Technical Director’s lead.”
Technical Requirements: “Proven track record as a team lead with experience on at least two successfully-published multi-player titles, participating in the development from concept to publishing stage.”
This is interesting because Rocksteady’s Batman video games have all been single player titles. This might be a sign the studio is planning some type of online multiplayer mode for their next game.
We do know they are finished developing Batman video games. This year’s Arkham Knight was the grand finale in the epic trilogy. Warner Montreal is the other studio that revealed they are working on two DC comics properties. It’s unknown if Rocksteady is working on another DC character or a new IP.
