Bethesda hiring for unannounced next-gen game

Bethesda Game Studios is working working on an unannounced next-generation game, and it's looking for talent to help out. The developer posted a job listing for a "future generation console programmer," which is--in a refreshing turn of events--actually still live on its website.

The listing was spotted by NeoGAF users just a few days after Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games put out--then modified--a similar call for next-gen developers. We aren't quite sure what makes a future generation console programmer, although Bethesda listed experience with DirectX 11 as a plus, so its longstanding presence on PCs is unlikely to change.

Expect to see more of these job listings as the next generation of consoles come into focus. With a likely PlayStation 4 reveal coming later this month, many next-generation titles and their expanding teams must be a decent way into development.

    I'll take another Elder scrolls over fallout 4, but I'd take either one happily.

    So no more skyrim dlc?
  • Tjwoods18 - February 2, 2013 7:58 p.m.

    Traditionally within the past few years, Bethesda has released around 5 DLC's per game. This happened with Fallout 3, and fallout 4 (plus two mini DLC's).

    Keep in mind they also promised Shivering Isles-style DLC. They probably won't do small Fallout DLCs for Elder Scrolls.

    I want Next Gen Fallout 4!

    Well I think we can eliminate Rage 2.
  • Lucario995 - February 2, 2013 8:25 a.m.

    I hope it IS Rage 2.

    I second this, Rage, while underwhelming, had potential but ending up losing it for shit, if they do make a sequel i just hope they stick with its original concept.

    Here is to hoping it's Fallout 4. Fallout 4 with specs and design intended for next gen consoles will give the PC side a long needed boost too. Would be great if we get F4 around Fall, 2014 (or sooner).
  • RedSoul - February 1, 2013 6:26 p.m.

    I think we can call expect this to be Fallout related, what with there being plans for a live-show adaptation in the works. Why bother going out of the way to start developing a show, if you haven't got state of the art games to go with it?
  • GoldenEagle1476 - February 1, 2013 6:05 p.m.

    *fingers crossed* Fallout 4?
  • Tjwoods18 - February 1, 2013 6:04 p.m.

    I don't personally see fallout 4 releasing on current gen, so here's to hoping that is it.
