The listing, looking for a Senior Character Concept Artist, states that the role is needed “for the development of a new unannounced title”.
Among the various responsibilities listed, one reads: “Develop and maintain strong creative and collaborative partnerships across subject areas to help further develop the in-game characters, visual language, and rule sets for fantasy-based worlds.”
Meanwhile, one of the job requirements involves “strong design skills with the ability to render realistic believable fantasy-based characters, creatures, and props using contemporary industry standard tools and techniques”.
The studio first announced in January that it was hiring an art director for an as-yet unannounced game, and last month job listings for more roles started to appear. This latest listing is the first to explicitly refer to a fantasy setting, however.
Unlike previous entries in the long-running series, which were inspired by Greek mythology, God of War is loosely based on Norse mythology.
The series reboot was a critical and commercial success, winning multiple Game of the Year awards and selling over 10 million copies.
