Swedish developer Massive Entertainment needs to hire 60 more employees to be able to complete development of The Division.
Not to be mean but can't really call this news. I mean devs go through hiring phases all the time. Are we now going to list every time a dev announces job openings or hiring phases for projects?
I like the fact that journalist list every time a dev announces job openings or hiring. Any clues that gives some idea on how ambition a game development is is golden. I praise UBI for making sure The Division is everything we all hoped for. The More man power the better.
im sure UBi can spare some peoples from studios working on 37 their differents Ass.Creed games....
Wasn't it 10 studios that are working on AC:Unity? I don't think Ubisoft needs more people... rather better people.
Haven't checked the article yet, what roles are they looking for? I wouldn't be surprised if they're tying off the game and looking to get the network guys in to assist the post launch plan. Integrating dlc, matchmaking, online experience etc. Why have them there for the initial 3-5 years of development? There'd be nowt to do until the best of the game is done.
This could be news if this is an indicator that they may delaying the game due to insufficient manpower. If they can't find the necessary staff to complete the game on time...
Occasionally these listings can give clues to the nature of an unreleased project... For example, Respawn recently advertised a position for a dev with experience in 3rd-person action, with an emphasis on free-running traversal mechanics... Perhaps they've begun work on a 3rd-person Titanfall sequel? Or maybe something else... a new IP? Either way it's interesting.
DAMN YOU 5 YEARS PROFFESIONAL EXPERIENCE!!! My arch nemesis of applying!
Get a masters degree, takes 5 years (including the undergrad)
Too much debt already, would rather spend my time in the field making money
master's degree =/= experience, they compliment each other but 5 years of experience with no masters degree is much better than a masters degree with no experience
Masters doesn't count for experience. I have one but to be honest, in hindsight, I was probably better off not doing one. These days, particularly in London, experience trumps everything. So whatever field you're trying to get into, my advice is to get work experience and get your foot in the door!
That's often going to be just for senior positions. If any experience is expected it's often nearer 3, and that's still for non-junior positions. I can only talk with respect to programming here, but I think you should be able to find a fair number of entry/junior/non-critical positions that don't rule out a lack experience. Unfortunately, near enough all will list that a person needs to have at least a Bachelor's degree in "a relevant field"; however, that really shouldn't be as important (arguably) as a high-quality portfolio that demonstrates how clued up and skilled a person is, and how much of an asset that individual would be now and into the future. In my opinion, if an applicant were to be brushed aside because of a lack of education, even though their demonstrative capabilities stands them out above the rest, that's a dev hiring wrong.
Sure... yet the game will likely result the same as Watch Dogs - Disappointment. But go on Ubisoft, I'm sure your marketing/ bribing team will save this one too.
You do know that Ubisoft aren't the developers... right?!?!
Nope I didn't know... /s That doesn't matter, almost every developer under big publishers is producing flawed games, some worse than others. I can see the hype miles away for this game and it's going to result in the the same disappointment many have experienced so far (keyword MANY not ALL.)
Massive is a Ubisoft studio.
No doubt about it. Ubisoft always gets free pass.
ok guys game is done thank you but we are to many...
For the love of all thats holy and pure do not take any resumes from anybody who has these three letters in their job history, COD. Hell I probably wouldn't even hire the guy who cleaned the bathrooms at any one of the studios who has been or is currently involved in a COD title.
