A job listing advertising a vacancy for a Lead FX Artist at Raven Software has dropped further hints that the studio is working on Activision’s multi-million selling Call of Duty series.
According to the job ad, Raven, who is owned by Activision, "is seeking a lead visual effects artist to drive the development of stunning visual effects for an established console-based, realistic, first-person military shooter."
Realistic, console-based, first-person military shooter? In Activision’s catalogue? It’s got to be Call of Duty.
The studio also requires that the candidate has the ability to create "highly realistic effects (weapons, atmospherics, etc.) placed in highly realistic next-gen game environments."
But why Raven?
Well, it was rumoured last year that the studio, who has previously developed 2009′s Wolfenstein and last year’s Singularity, was developing DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops, the latest Call of Duty title developed by Treyarch and released by Activision in November 2010.
Could this be further evidence of that being the case, or could Raven be hard at work on a full-scale Call of Duty title?
Activision has already confirmed that another Call of Duty game will be released during the second half of 2011, which is expected to be Modern Warfare 3 or Sledgehammer’s debut title.
