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 got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
