Gearbox Recruiting for "Huge" Project – Let the Speculation Begin
Randy Pitchford is looking for a few good men, or women for that matter. Over on the Gearbox forums, he has posted a butterfly inducing announcement regarding the fact that he is hiring for a huge new project. Here is an excerpt:
“I’ve started a new project. It’s big. It’s, like, look-at-our-line-up-and-imagine-something-even-bigger kind of big. I’m Directing it myself. I can’t mention it publicly yet. When you find out what this is, you’ll likely agree that I can’t oversell this one………I’m looking for some talent from outside of Gearbox to join us for this one. Specifically, we need a super senior artist – lead artist or art director level. “
He also mentions the fact that he will be at DICE and GDC in Feb, so if you are indeed serious about applying for any of the job listings, email him and let him know you plan on going so he can meet with you personally.
Not only is this good news for people in the industry looking for a job, but for gamers as well because it just adds to the speculation of what this BIG project might be. We can pretty much expect that whatever this mystery project is, we will not get our grubby paws on it until close to 2010 because Brothers in Arms Hell’s Highway and Borderlands have yet to ship; plus they have the Aliens project still going on. However, if it is anything like other games they have touched, it is indeed something to get excited about.
