BioShock 4 Job Listing Suggests Game Will Use Unreal Engine 5
As the latest generation of video game hardware continues to set its foothold in the gaming industry, the technology with which to develop these games continues to evolve. Along with the advanced hardware of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, perhaps the biggest piece of development software for next-gen titles is Unreal Engine 5. The latest in Epic Games’ highly praised development engines has shown great promise and is currently being used for games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 and Dragon Quest XII. Now, according to a new BioShock 4 job listing, it seems that the engine will also be used in the upcoming major title.
Developer Cloud Chamber recently shared the new BioShock 4 job listing on Greenhouse.io. According to the site, the only position needed is a Senior Gameplay Programmer and would require working with the design, animation, audio, and art departments to help craft the world and player progression systems. These systems would largely be created from the ground up and require immense amounts of collaboration. In addition, the listing also mentions a lot of the specific responsibilities that will come with the position, with the following being of note:
- Work within Unreal Engine 5 adapting existing systems and building new technology in order to fulfill the project’s technical needs and creative goals
- Support planning efforts by estimating and dependency checking gameplay feature development.
The Unreal Engine 5 has shown so far that it is specifically built to utilize the latest in video game hardware, namely its capabilities with graphic features like ray-tracing. As such, this BioShock 4 job listing suggests the game is likely being developed with the intent of releasing for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. While this has yet to be officially announced by Cloud Chamber, the move would make sense, especially given the game is probably still several years from release. However BioShock 4 looks graphically when it launches, with the help of Unreal Engine 5, it is surely going to look dauntingly beautiful, like the city of Rapture itself.
