Creative Assembly Working on Next AAA Project
The talented crew behind one of the best games of 2014 is already gearing up for its next blockbuster hit for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
VideoGamer reports that Creative Assembly is hiring for more team members as it continues work on a new "multi-platform AAA blockbuster," coming to current-gen consoles and PC. Creative Assembly has made a big name for itself due to the success of last year's survival horror hit, Alien: Isolation, which acts as a sequel to Ridley Scott's original science fiction classic. The job listing is searching for a multiplayer and online programmer that has Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC experience to join their console development team. Whether this new project is a sequel to Alien: Isolation or a new game entire remains to be seen.
"We are seeking an talented programmer has thorough experience developing a range of online features," the ad states. "We are creating another multi-platform AAA blockbuster and the successful applicant will be part of a team which allows our game experience to be shared."
While the team at Creative Assembly have not revealed if they intend on doing a sequel to Alien: Isolation, we should note that its quite possible, as Amanda Ripley's mother had numerous sequel stories throughout the Alien movie franchise over the past three decades. The game's rather open-ended ending suggests that Amanda survived and there are potentially more Xenomorphs to find as she continues to search for her mother.
"The plot for a sequel is a daily topic in the studio sometimes", said Alien: Isolation Lead Designer, Gary Napper, last year. "People have their own ideas for where it should go, our writers have some solid concepts and yes, we do have a great opportunity to continue [Amanda Ripley's] story."
Stay tuned as we'll provide up-to-date coverage on this new project once Creative Assembly makes a formal announcement.
