Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!

Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!

Irrational Games has posted a new message on the official website. The company is looking for new people to take part in the development of a whole new project. There’s not much information about the upcoming game. We do know that it’s a narrative driven first person shooter, so it’s safe to assume we’re talking about the next Bioshock title.


Bioshock Infinite

Located near Boston, Massachusetts, our studio is widely recognized as one of the industry’s leading game developers. We have earned a reputation for creating story-driven, award-winning games like System Shock 2, Freedom Force, BioShock, and BioShock Infinite. If you’re interested in working at a studio that is committed to delivering genre-defining games and driving industry innovation, then we may just be the place for you!

If you want to join the team as a game systems designer, you need to have experience with open-world games, like Borderlands and Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor. Ken Levine seems to be a huge fan of Shadows of Mordor himself. One of the other notable requirements is the passion for “narrative first-person shooters”, which actually seals the deal for us.

Back in March (as Polygon reports) Irrational was looking for an experienced senior programmer, with UE4-experience. Maybe the company is building its next big hit with the help of Epic’s awesome tool? It’s a very high probability, since the previous Bioshock titles were build with Unreal Engine.
