Firesprite, a UK-based game developer recently acquired by PlayStation, is hiring a writer for a new narrative adventure AAA title.
In a job listing posted on their website, Firesprite is looking for a writer “for the development of an ambitious unannounced AAA title[.]” The job will require the writer to “create compelling character and story” and an ideal candidate is somehow “who understands how to construct a branching narrative.”
Although Firesprite is best known for its PSVR work — having developed games like The Persistence and PlayStation The Playroom experience — Firesprite managing director Graeme Ankers told GamesIndustry.biz that it’s not a guarantee the firm will exclusively work on VR games now that it’s joined PlayStation.
“The philosophy that we have is to really innovate and create on any platform. Whether that’s VR or non-VR,” Ankers said.
However, Firesprite hasn’t necessarily ruled out VR either, and Sony confirmed that it’s working on a brand-new version of its popular PSVR headset to work alongside the PlayStation 5. Sony even revealed the new controllers that will go along with the headset, which is rumored to include a 4K display, eye tracking, and more.
