2018 was one of the best years ever for PlayStation, with the likes of PS4 exclusives God Of War and Spider-Man raking in sales for Sony.
The next confirmed PS4 exclusive that everyone’s ridiculously excited for is, of course, The Last Of Us 2, which is expected to launch in 2020.
Interestingly, 2020 is also the year slated to see the release of the next-gen Sony console, the PlayStation 5. Whether The Last Of Us 2 will be a launch title with the PS5 is yet to be seen.
However, along with its many exciting plans for the future, it appears that Sony is getting ready for something that no-one expected…
According to recent job listings [via Express], PlayStation is looking to hire staff for a new third-person adventure which it calls “the next chapter of cinematic storytelling.”
One of the official job descriptions reads: “Sony PlayStation Visual Arts provides world-class content, development and services to Worldwide Studios.
“We offer a full-service production studio with an emphasis in art, animation, as well as previsualization, character creation, motion capture, software development, face/body scanning, tracking and solving.
“We are looking for a highly talented, motivated and creative Lead Character Artist for the next chapter of cinematic story-telling.
