Arkane Studios is Seeking Developers with Switch Knowledge
Arkane Studios, the French developer behind Dishonored, Dishonored 2, and Prey, has listed a job advertisement which asks that applicants have knowledge of Switch development kits.
The studio never released a title on a Nintendo platform, with Call of Duty: World at War’s online multiplayer maps being the only thing Nintendo fans have ever received from them, so seeing the Switch specifically mentioned in the job application suggests that the console has a good chance of being supported in future projects of the developer. The Switch is listed alongside other platforms regularly supported by Arkane Studios under the “desired skills” section.
The listing, also says that the roles on offer are for engine programmers who will join the studio in creating “ambitious AAA games”. This could be a hint that another sequel in the Dishonored series could be made, or even one for Prey, but it could also be an entirely new project instead. Just time will tell of what could it be this “ambitious” project that the developer is talking about and hopefully it will be released on the Nintendo Switch.
