Insomniac Now Hiring Animator For "Fun AAA Title"
Don't you guys want to work for Insomniac? It's well known as one of the best places in the industry to hang your hat, and if you're an animator in need of a job...
An eagle-eyed reader has spotted a job listing over at Gamasutra - looking for a cool position, are we? - and it's for an Animator at the prominent development studio. They of course won't give us the title's name but they do give us a hint; it's apparently "a fun AAA title with great characters," which is kinda vague, but could relate to either a new Ratchet and Clank or Resistance. We've assumed for a while that Insomniac was toiling away on Resistance 3 but if they are, they're certainly keeping it under wraps. At the same time, we just got Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time late last year, so to be working on another Ratchet so soon seems a little...bizarre. But although it's not a handheld iteration - the platform is listed clearly as "PlayStation 3" - it could be a downloadable project, akin to Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty. What do you think of that? Or would you rather it be Resistance 3? The Resistance series doesn't get enough respect, in our opinion.
Anyway, we're always interested in whatever Insomniac wants to do. These guys always know what they're doing; the chances of a sub-par product coming from this studio are slim to none.
