    Bungie On The Lookout For PS3 Engineers
    For multi-platform game
    [​IMG]

    It has been known for a while now that Bungie is going multiplatform, having signed a ten-year deal with publishing giant Activision. While it is unknown at this point just what the team is working on, one thing is for sure: they need people with PlayStation 3 development experience.


    As has been spotted on the company’s career page, Bungie is currently looking for a “Software Development Engineer in Test” on the PS3 platform. Now it does require a bachelor’s in Computer Science as well as a “high IQ,” so only seasoned programmers experienced in developing test cases, among other things, need apply. Obviously Bungie looks to be gearing up for a multiplatform release in the future, and the gaming world will soon get to see how this popular ex-Xbox 360-only developer performs on the PlayStation 3.[/p]

    I'm interested to see how a Bungie game will be on PS3. Hmm, only time will tell, I guess.

    They don't need to phrase a PC-specific query, because every current day programmer starts with PC. The two Microsoft platforms aren't that different either. That's why a lot of GfW games were released: because they are easy to port from 360 to PC.

    Pretty late news, although I'm excited to hear what they're planning.

    What? It was posted yesterday, which was when the original post was posted. Unless you mean Bungie signing a contract with Activision which is not what this post is about in the first place.

    That'd be great and all...except Microsoft has the copyrights -_-;; And joy, now every Bungie game made from now on'll have subscription-based online play.

    Bungie? No thanks unless it's a single player fare.

    the current engine that halo uses is pretty outdated even for 360 standards

    Nope, Bungie has been advertising for PS3 testers in their job section for a while. I first took notice of it on their page around the time of the Reach Beta (Mayish).
     
  17. Devs have gone crazy these days...
    Bungie is going to die as a successful studio soon enough..
