New Ubisoft job listings hint at potential Rocksmith sequel

After five years, Ubisoft stopped releasing new DLC tracks for Rocksmith Remastered earlier this year. Since then the userbase has been on the look-out for details regarding a potential sequel to Ubisoft’s Rocksmith franchise. Now, job listings may have let the cat out of the bag.

Ubisoft has posted a job description for a Guitar and Bass transcriptionist:

Responsibilities:-

  • Accurate transcription of guitar and bass music using proprietary tablature authoring software
  • Check note tracks and vocal transcriptions with thoughtfulness and attention to detail
  • Tempo mapping audio files
  • Analyze songs to identify and evaluate guitar tunings and associated techniques

Other Ubisoft job listings include: Producer, UI designer, music analyst and tester descriptions specifically mentioning Rocksmith.

Should these job postings actually turn into anything as far as a sequel is concerned, it seems there may be a larger online focus for the franchise. The most obvious place for Rocksmith to head next would be with a greater focus on online multiplayer and perhaps if they can add drums or vocals. Other job descriptions reference the potential for vocal transcription as well — lending themselves to the idea that we could see some vocal component in a sequel.
