Bethesda Game Studios Hiring "Future Generation Console Programmer"

#1
Thanks to WorstUsernameEver for finding this.

They've been referring to future consoles on their site for a while, but this is the first time they're doing it 100% unambiguously, so it's possible we'll see their next game (presumably Fallout 4) on next-gen instead.

Yeah I was hoping to see F4 on the next gen consoles rather than the current ones. Also hoping for a completely new engine, no more gamebryo stuff.

My takeaway from the wording of this ad is that we are somehow still in "next-generation", seven years in, so what we're waiting on is future-generation consoles.

Rats, I was going to apply for this, I fill every quality... except I don't have a passion for making GREAT games or working with a GREAT team. In fact, I only want to make SUB PAR games and work with a MEDIOCRE team.

Translation: Write better position requirements.

THAT BEING SAID:

It's pretty obvious that the new consoles will come out someday, that Bethesda or Sony or some other company is hiring for them doesn't necessarily mean they're coming out tomorrow, or this year, or next year.

I'd bet we'll see it released concurrently on both current gen and next gen hardware.

I can't wait to see what Gamebryo will look like next gen. It's like Marge's Chanel dress. She can sew it into something new just one more time!

Maybe this person will figure out how split pools of RAM work, you know, like every other dev on the planet.
LoL yea. I am surprised that affected PS3 owners didn't file a class action lawsuit given that Bethesda knew about the problem and still decided to ship it. Any other industry and it would have been a different scenario.

Makes me wonder if PS4 will have split pool this time around.

I don't really know anything about this so I'm basically speaking out of my ass, but with Nintendo supposedly designing their system to be similar to the 360, and PS3 usually getting the worst versions of games I would think they'd go unified next gen.

Aren't we all (people who actually know are under NDA and excepted) when it comes speculating on next gen system specs? That said, I don't see the problem disappearing without a brand new engine. And no, reworked gamebryo that the PR touts as new a big fat stinking sack of lie. It surprises me that how much we can take up our asses, complain on forum and then forget the issue soon (a true ADD generation).

Once the devkits are sent out from Sony, I hope they thoroughly test their in-development engine.

I already fixed the problem. STOP TRACKING EVERYTHING. I don't care that I knocked over a pencil in Doc Brown's bedroom 200 hours ago in New Vegas. I'm totally not going to notice it reset. If Bethesda would get over their fetish for tracking and saving literally every interaction the player performs the game wouldn't have had as many issues.

The only reason anybody uses the term "next-gen" anymore is to differentiate the current HD consoles from the Wii. When the Wii U comes out, it'll be next-gen.

Good, the next generation of consoles can't come soon enough. Not that it really matters, we'll just be complaining 6 months after they release that they don't support DX12 instead of complaining that the current-gen ones don't support DX11. Probably won't see 1080p or 60Hz either, sadly.
