Path of Exile, Entropia Universe and Jagex MMOFPS - The Daily XP July 17th
The multi-award winning development and publisher studio, Jagex, recently made a job posting for an Executive Producer position for an unnamed MMOFPS game. Jagex are most well known as the name behind the most popular free-to-play browser MMO of our time, Runescape, but the UK based team are responsible for over 40 online games and have recently expanded into the mobile platform.
The job posting was created on the hugely popular professional networking site, LinkedIn, detailing the responsibilities and key duties for any potential applicants. The posting highlights two main aspects for desired skills, highlighted below:
Desired Skills & Experience
- A keen enthusiasm for gaming especially online games / MMOs
- Proven experience with a squad based FPS title
post also asks that applicants have "an excellent understanding of
session-based games and balancing", although Jagex have yet to release
any official details on what's involved in the upcoming title. Another
area of interest is the requirement for "brilliant understanding of the
systems behind user generated content", a feature that's hardly seen in
other online-based FPS titles.
There is no shortage of session-based MMOFPS games on the market today but if Jagex has anything to do with it, their unnamed MMOFPS game is sure to become very popular.
