ZeniMax Hiring For Position With "MMO Development Experience" For "New IP"
Is ZeniMax Online Studios looking to expand its MMO offerings beyond The Elder Scrolls Online? That might be the case, to go by a job listing on the ZOS careers page, which calls for a Core Tech Programmer with "MMO development experience" to "work on an exciting new IP!"
We already know about Starfield, Bethesda Softworks' (a division of ZeniMax) next-generation sci-fi RPG that's in early development, so it's just possible that the two are one in the same -- though there's been no talk of the "MMO" being attached to Starfield's "RPG."
Also, given that The Elder Scrolls Online is still a pay-to-play game, there's no guarantee that this new MMO -- no guarantee that it's an "RPG" -- would be free-to-play. That said, the project is likely far enough down the road that anything is possible; an MMO that began development in 2009, when F2P games were all but unknown, would have found a very different launch environment in 2013.
The position also requires "Strong technical knowledge of Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC," so whatever it is, it's likely going to be multi-platform. We'll probably have to wait a good long while, though, before we get anything more tangible. In the meantime, let us know: What kind of "new IP MMO" would you like to see ZeniMax working on?
