Will work on Unreal Engine 4 projects
Epic has confirmed that it is launching a new Seattle studio that will focus on development for the Unreal Engine 4. The studio will be handling engineering efforts for the new engine to start with, but that could lead into additional things later.
The company is looking to recruit folks to staff the positions at the studio. Seven positions are open and listed on Epic’s Career Center, but sources say there are more to come. It is clear from the jobs descriptions that the studio will be focused on the engine development and it is looking for those with experience in engine development and such things as animation systems, audio tools, online components, and rendering.
What Epic has not announced is what the name of this new studio will be and who will be heading it. Those details will be unveiled at a later date, according to Epic.
