Popcap is looking for a generalist software engineer with "experience working with the Frostbite 2 engine" for a "AAA console title," a job posting
spotted by Superannuation
reveals. Popcap is, of course, the mobile and social studio behind Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies
, so a foray into AAA territory is surprising, to say the least.
The job listing says, specifically: "The PopCap studio is looking for an experienced generalist SE to build a AAA console title. This generalist will work on a broad range of game systems including, but not limited to: animation, audio, resource management, pipelines and visual effects. The ideal candidate will also have experience working with the Frostbite 2 engine."
Keep your eyes peeled for a first-person version of Plants vs. Zombies
– the twist? You play as the plant.
