Rare is hiring for a next-gen title that uses Kinect and cloud-based features.
"Following on from the success of ‘Kinect Sports’ and its recent sequel ‘Kinect Sports: Season Two’, Rare is continuing to push the boundaries of the Kinect hardware with our exciting new project. We’re looking for an experienced and passionate engineer to join us on this journey.
"This role will involve you working as part of the Cloud Services engineering team in order to develop and deliver Cloud Services for our current and future products. As part of your role, you will be required to work closely with Artists, Designers, Producers and Program Managers.
"As a Principal, you may also be expected to undertake some elements of leadership including mentoring other engineers and helping drive the direction of Cloud Services in our future titles."
Rare make it clear the successful candidate must, "Deliver cloud services that support gameplay, data sharing and title instrumentation, work closely with design in order to define ambitious cloud services within our upcoming titles."
Meanwhile, another job listing includes, "Working with extremely early prototype hardware co-developed with teams located off-site."
Is this likely to be a long-awaited sequel, or a brand new IP? We'd go for the latter.
