Popcap Games, makers of hits like Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Zuma and others, may be making the switch to AAA titles. A recent job posting at EA seeking a software engineer may indicate they’re making the switch to bigger games. The job posting asks that the candidate have experience on consoles like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3:
“The PopCap studio is looking for an experienced generalist SE to build a AAA console title. This generalist will work on a broad range of game systems including, but not limited to: animation, audio, resource management, pipelines and visual effects. The ideal candidate will also have experience working with the Frostbite 2 engine.”
This is really interesting, could this be a bigger version of Plants vs. Zombies 3? Or is this a new IP? We will have to wait and find out I guess.
