After the fallout that resulted in Respawn Entertainment, Infinity Ward needs some new recruits. Despite the recent troubles, it's a developer Activision apparently intends to stick by and restaff. Here's what's available at Infinity Ward and what it might tell us about their next Call of Duty.
- Associate Producer
- Executive Assistant
- Senior Animator
- Senior Effects Artist
- Senior Environmental Artist
- Senior Game Designer
- Senior Software Engineer
- Systems Administrator
Those are the nine advertised positions for Infinity Ward at the moment, though there's also a call for resumes from "passionate, motivated, and experienced individuals across all disciplines, at every level." The jobs do not tell us very much about the future of Infinity Ward that we don't already know.
"Do you want to be a Designer on some of the best selling and most critically acclaimed shooters of all time?"
"You thrive on creating the minute-to-minute firefights, action sequences and holy-s**t moments that keep gamers coming back for more."
"Infinity Ward, developer of numerous award winning games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, is seeking a Senior Animator with experience in game development and an interest in working with next-generation technologies."
"Infinity Ward is looking for an experienced Senior Effects Artist responsible for creating special effects for our next title."
"The ideal candidate will have at least 3+ years experience in an environment artist role having demonstrated the ability to create realistic and visually compelling environments."
"You must have experience in shipping a PS3 or X360 game."
What does say about the next Call of Duty? Pretty much nothing, except to expect more action. Given how deep the departures were at Infinity Ward, it's no surprise the jobs aren't saying much.
