Last October we reported that Treyarch was looking to hire for next gen development, now it looks likes Infinity Ward will be doing the same, this could only mean that we’re getting close to seeing next generation consoles.
Theres been a lot of rumors floating around that the next Xbox and PS4 would be revealed in June at E3 until recently when Sony publicly denied that the PS4 will be shown and stands by its “10 year life cycle plan”. It’s still possible that the next Xbox will be revealed this year since Microsoft has only indicated no comment.
As far as the listing, it’s very possible that by “next gen”, Infinity Ward could be referring to the Nintendo Wii-U or the Next Xbox. Either way, the dawn of next generation hardware is almost here, wether you’re ready or not.
“Infinity Ward, developer of numerous award winning games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, is seeking a Senior Animator, preferably with experience in game development and an interest in working with next-generation technologies,”
