While the North American TERA servers are getting a patch today containing the game’s first raid dungeon, Korean developer Bluehole Studio seems to be looking for fresh programmers to get to work on the game’s sequel.
The news comes from the Korean Bluehole website, which has the job posted in the Recruitment section of the site. The link can be found here.
The post states they are looking for a C++ programmer with extensive knowledge of computer graphics and server management; and that they are looking to create a next-generation MMORPG to follow TERA.
One has to wonder which engine they may choose for this TERA‘s sequel. TERA itself uses Unreal Engine 3, but with Unreal Engine 4 and CryEngine 3 dev kits making their rounds it is possible the “next-generation” part of the post refers to one of these extremely powerful engines.
While this is all great news to TERA fans, don’t get too excited just yet. Development time and costs are higher than ever, meaning it will be quite some time until we even get a glance at Bluehole’s next game.
