The Sims Developer Is Hiring For A New Live Service IP
The Sims series has attracted numerous hardcore and casual gamers to the life simulation genre of games for nearly two decades. The latest entry in the series, The Sims 4, has continued to honor the game series’s legacy, while adding new features and content to make it like no other Sims game before. All of this can be attributed to Maxis, the longtime developer of The Sims, which has even gone so far to make Sims content for Amazon Echo devices. With live-service games growing in popularity, many have wondered how Maxis might respond. Well, it seems that response is coming in the form of a new IP that will be based around a live-service game.
Maxis has released a new creative director job position on the official EA website. The position would be for a long-term live service game that utilizes a new IP brand. The IP is not revealed in the listing, but the details provide some insight into what the game might look like. For instance, the listing for a creative director position specifically mentions that the candidate must require experience in “leadership experience in PC products, mobile titles and live service”
The listing also requires the candidate to “understand how user-generated content and experiences are shaping products in the market,” which would imply user-generated content being a cornerstone component of the new game. Whatever the game ends up being, hopefully it will maintain the quirky charms of The Sims franchise.
