Wizards of the Coast is making a big-budget G.I. Joe game

Mega-toy brand Hasbro has, through its games division Wizards of the Coast, opened a videogame studio that is “led by industry veterans from WB Games and other AAA studios”. That’s according to the job description attached to several listings for new roles. The studio, just referred to as “New Raleigh-Durham Studio”, will be making a G.I. Joe game as its first project.

The job ads call it a “AAA 3rd Person Action/Adventure game”, as well as confirming it will be multi-platform. Qualifications mentioned in the listings for four roles (technical director, art director, lead game designer, and lead animator) ask for experience with the Unreal engine, as well as knowledge of broad videogame elements like “progression” and “exploration mechanics”.
