Rage 2 Could Have Multiplayer, According To This Recent Listing
Bethesda recently announced the return of the Rage franchise with Rage 2. The insane trailer gave fans a quick peek at the intense, over-the-top action that the game intends to provide. While there seemed to be mostly single player aspects seen throughout the reveal, it appears that the storyline was just one part of a much bigger puzzle. A puzzle that very well may include multiplayer play.
Avalanche Studio, the developers working on the sequel, recently posted a job listing that stated the company is looking for a Senior Multiplayer Programmer who can “lead the multiplayer development of our newest open world/sandbox multiplayer game.” It also mentioned “We have a long history of creating some of the most immersive, playful and procedural game worlds in the industry. With our next set of titles we are bringing these worlds to life in multiplayer environments and this is where You come in.”
The listing went on to mention “You will work within a smaller and tight cross-discipline team implementing, extending and supporting game modes and other features for both the single player and multiplayer parts of the game. As with most multiplayer development, a keen sense of fun gameplay and that 6th sense for what gives the perfect “feeling” are both key aspects for this role.”
The rumor of the multiplayer aspect has been going on for a little bit now, but this job post may have just given some much needed validity to those reports. Still, the game looks amazing and definitely shows more of an effort than its predecessor.
Rage 2 is theorized to arrive sometime in the Spring of 2019. Perhaps an official release date will be revealed during the massive Bethesda event at E3 this year.
