Naughty Dog is hiring programmer that has experience with DX12, Vulkan & NVIDIA GPUs for The Last of Us 2

Now here is something really interesting. Naughty Dog is currently hiring a Graphics Programmer for The Last of Us 2. The candidate must have experience with DirectX 12, Vulkan or other modern graphics or compute APIs. Not only that, but he/she must have thorough understanding of both AMD GCN and NVIDIA CUDA architectures.

Now we all know that the current-gen and next-gen consoles are using AMD’s graphics cards. As such, these requirements may hint at a PC version of The Last of Us 2.

Earlier this month, we informed you about Horizon Zero Dawn coming to the PC. Moreover, and according to Eurogamer’s Tim Phillips, Dreams will be another Playstation 4-exclusive game that will release on the PC. And, if this job listing is anything to go by, The Last of Us II may also find its way on our platform.

My guess is that Sony will reveal more about its PC plans in February, during its PS5 reveal event. It sounds ironic, but PC gamers may have something interesting to look forward to. Again, we are merely guessing here.

Last but not least, I don’t expect the first party PS5 games to come out on the PC at the same time. My guess is that we will see some of the PS5-exclusive games appearing on the PC at a later date. Nevertheless, it appears that Sony is serious about bringing its catalogue on our platform.

Stay tuned for more!
