Man, today we got a lot of news regarding the future projects of a lot of gaming studios. After CD Projekt RED’s multiplayer plans, it’s time to reveal Vigil Games’ next game. According to a job listing, the company is hiring a Gameplay Programmer to help design, implement, and refine the overall gameplay experience for thei next title. And that programmer must have experience working on an FPS title, meaning that Vigil’s next title will be a first person shooter.
Going into more details, the Senior Gameplay Programmer will work closely with other Art and Design leads to insure that all gameplay functionality is carried through to completion and provides an incredible player experience.
Furthermore, those interested for this position should have previously held a senior programming position on at least one shipped AAA console or PC title (preferably an FPS), and be an avid FPS gamer with strong interest in pushing the genre forward creatively.
Last but not least, they should have deep knowledge (professionally or as a gamer) of FPS mechanics and gameplay.
The big question now is – what kind of FPS game will Vigil be developing?
Oh, and in other news, both id Software and Infinity Ward are hiring for some next-generation, DX11, future games!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
