Sony has published through LinkedIn two new job vacancies to work on a new Insomniac Games project. The popular social network has been the place where it has been confirmed that the parents of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Ratchet and Clank, among others, are already immersed in a new game exclusively for PlayStation.
The date of publication of these two new jobs offers date from just a couple of days ago: Senior Audio Designer and Audio Designer FXT. These are two tasks of a similar responsibility to be closely linked with the audio design of the project, which we already warned has not transcended any detail on what IP can be treated.
We do not know, at least with the information contrasted through these job offers, if it will be a hypothetical (and desired by many) Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, a new title of Ratchet and Clank or if they will be working on a new intellectual property. The description, extensively, leaves us details such as the following:
“Responsible for being an active and key contributor for the creative direction and style for audio assets and workflow processes throughout a production cycle. Creates, edits, and implements game-ready audio. Works closely with the rest of the audio team to maintain a high level of quality and consistency of assets.”
It should be noted that the offers are for signing a contract with Sony, not with Insomniac Games; in this way, although the conditions implicitly imply a position in the offices of the studio based in California (United States), it is a development produced by Sony. We remember that Insomniac Games is an independent studio, a Sony second party in this case. In the recent past, they also signed an exclusive work for Xbox One (later also on PC) such as Sunset Overdrive.
It is unknown if that project will see the light on PlayStation 4 or the future generation of hardware of the Japanese company, which we know under the tentative name of PlayStation 5. It will not be released in 2019, according to Mark Cerny, the architect of the said machine.
