Sleeping Dogs dev hiring for 'next-gen console title'

Job listing calls for multiplayer programmer

Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games appears to be working on a next-generation console game.


"We are looking for an experienced network programmer to work with our online team to develop the multiplayer features of our next gen console title," the firm revealed in a job vacancy listing for a 'multiplayer programmer'.

The listing has since been edited to remove mention of 'next-gen', but at the time of writing the original post is still accessible via Google Cache.

"The ideal candidate will also have been credited on several console titles, worked with multiplayer middleware packages, and have experience with state replication, interpolation, bandwidth optimization, and knowledge of common multiplayer features such as matchmaking, invites, game lobbies, leader boards, stats, etc," the post adds.

No further hints about the game were given.

CVG's Sleeping Dogs review called it "one of the best open world games of recent years", and an "enjoyable sandbox backed up by a great story and brutal combat". It scored 8.4

Should the in-development title be Sleeping Dogs 2, here's a feature on the things we'd most like to see in it.
