United Front Games may be developing “Sleeping Dogs 2” for the PS4 and Xbox 720. According to a job posting that was discovered by the NeoGAF forum on Jan. 29, the studio is seeking a network/multiplayer programmer for a “next gen console title.” You can check out some screens from the first “Sleeping Dogs,” as well as some concept designs of the PS4 and Xbox 720, in the slideshow at the top of this article and the job description below (courtesy of the NeoGAF forum):
We are looking for an experienced network programmer to work with our online team to develop the multiplayer features of our next gen console title. The candidate must have solid C++ programming experience, understanding of network programming models, excellent communication ability, and a passion for creating world class online titles. The ideal candidate will also have been credited on several console titles, worked with multiplayer middleware packages, and have experience with state replication, interpolation, bandwidth optimization, and knowledge of common multiplayer features such as matchmaking, invites, game lobbies, leader boards, stats, etc.
As the job posting suggested, “Sleeping Dogs 2” will most likely come with some sort of multiplayer component. “Sleeping Dogs” came out for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms in North America on Aug. 14, 2012. United Front Games developed the open-world action-adventure video game while Square Enix handled the publishing duties. You can purchase the game in the following link: “Sleeping Dogs”
Because the first game was just released last year, it could take some time for “Sleeping Dogs 2” to come out for the PS4 and Xbox 720.
