Job Posting Hints At Daybreak Working On New F2P Shooter
Despite what happened to EverQuest Next, H1Z1, and Landmark, it seems that Daybreak Game Company hasn't completely given up on the free-to-play market.
There's a job posting on Daybreak's careers site for "Senior Game Designer - Unannounced Title" in its San Diego office. The position requires several bits of experience that provide tantalizing nuggets of information regarding the nature of this new title:
Other job listings related to an "Unannounced Title" include Senior UI Designer, which is to "help envision, design, build and optimize a brand new service targeted to web and mobile platforms" and a UI Game Programmer with "Web application and mini-game experience." Whether these positions are related to the F2P shooter title is unclear. A Senior Game Programmer position posting does mention experience with AAA FPS games in its requirements.
On the one hand, it's nice to see that Daybreak isn't just shrinking like it seems to have been doing ever since the Columbus Nova takeover from Sony. Then again, with all the bad blood over the past year and a half, it's going to be tough for the company to engender enough goodwill to get people to try out any new title. What do you think?
