Looks like the developers of the inFAMOUS series are getting back to work, and they're going to be making another open-world game, despite laying off a huge number of workers. We know that they're hiring due to a job offering for a new Narrative Designer, showing that they already have something in the works. They even specify that it's going to be an open-world game that they're working on.
The job offer reads as follows, courtesy of DualShockers:
"Sucker Punch is looking for a temporary Narrative Writer to help create engaging and compelling narrative content for our upcoming project. Daily tasks will include story development, game dialogue and general narrative contribution. The ideal candidate will have previous success as a game writer or screenwriter, outstanding communication skills, a good understanding of story and game structure, experience in a writers’ room setting, and an absolute passion to tell great stories in various cinematic mediums.
Furthermore, in keeping with the style of inFAMOUS, it appears the mystery title will be set in an open-world.
Collaborate with content designers, writers and creative staff in creating original narrative content and believable characters for an open world game. Experience in playing open world games."
Open-world games with dynamic characters have always been Sucker Punch's specialty, so it's fair to say that the game has a high chance of being great. It only made sense that they would be diving back into another project, considering that they recently put out an offer for a new concept artist as well.
But it's time to let us know what you think! Do you think Sucker Punch should continue working with open-world games, or should they step out of their comfort zone for a bit? Let us know in the comments below!
