Treyarch Prepares For Massive Call Of Duty Release, Seeks New People To Join Team

by Ernice Gilbert on January 24th, 2010, under Gaming News

Although Modern Warfare 2 came out just a few months ago, the game has already become the fourth best selling title of all time; that’s an amazing accomplishment. So now keeping in tradition, Treyarch, another Activision studio will be developing the next game in the highly praised franchise and without a doubt the pressure is on.

To meet expectations of fans the studio must do its best to at least match what Infinity Ward was able to accomplish, and if the recent posting on its website holds true, we have now doubt that Treyarch will definitely do a great job.

Do you think you have what it takes to become a team member at Treyarch? Then by all means, try your luck.

Here are the positions and responsibilities:

Responsibilities:

Applicants must have at least two years experience in character animation for games and a strong understanding of traditional animation fundamentals. Experience using 3D Studio Max for animating is a plus. An understanding of character creation (modeling, texturing and rigging) is a must. Applicants should be able to work in a range of styles.
Qualifications

* Experienced in cinematics
* Motion Builder proficient
* knowledge of 3D Studio Max modeling, rigging and Physique.
* Knowledge of Character Studio.

    I’m looking forward to what these guys have in store with the next game. If it manages to top MW2, then it would be the biggest game of 2010…

    I wants…

    I’m really excited to see what Treyarch is developing. I’m guessing this game will be across all three platforms(PS3/360/Wii) as COD:WaW was, and Treyarch is the company that also just ported over COD:MWReflex for the Wii.

    Man I wish I could get a job in the Gaming Industry. I am majoring in Computer Science but have my courses focused heavily on programming as I hope to get my foot in somewhere as an entry level programmer or any game dev and work my way up to an awesome developer like naughty dog, santa monica, etc. Also can’t wait to see the new COD as I heard it was set in Vietnam and we are lacking a good Vietnam FPS and COD should do a very jood job as their record stands out in FPS genre.

      Thank Ernice I appreciate the generosity and your prayers. The gaming industry is so hard to get your foot in and keep it in but it’s what I’m shooting for and if it doesn’t work out there is alot of programming work here in Pittsburgh I can settle for but it’s a dream of mine
