CCP Job Listing Hints MMORPG Plans

Just a couple of months ago CCP announced they were dropping virtual reality development amid layoffs. Now there's a more positive omen in this job listing for their London studio suggesting a new project is in the works at the Icelandic developer (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). This is for an MMORPG they describe as "highly ambitious," and while they only go into so much detail, there are some hints about the plan in the listing, including a mention of "economy and balance modelling," and job requirements including leading at least one systems heavy game, "fantastic" knowledge of the MMORPG genre, and Unreal Engine 4 experience. Here's word:

CCP is currently building a team in London to lead development on a new and highly ambitious MMORPG. We are looking to grow a relatively small, tight-knit team, capable of delivering big ideas through experience, smart process, and world-class tools.

We are looking for a new Lead Designer to join this growing team, responsible for leading a small team of experienced designers in the development and execution of our game design. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrable track-record of leading design teams on multiple high-profile titles, and ideally experience of RPG gameplay and systems design development.

Responsibilities

  • Management and prioritization of Senior Designers daily workload.
  • Genesis of design concepts to match the game’s vision.
  • Responsibility for all design documentation being suitable for intended audiences.
  • Guiding the intra-team design communication channels.
  • Validation of all design scoping estimates.
  • Ownership of the accuracy of both economy and balance modelling.
  • Responsible for working closely with the development team to drive high quality feature implementation with the right gameplay “feel”.
  • Responsibie for the successful implementation of all features.
  • Line-management, guidance and mentoring of the wider design team.
  • Collaboration with the Art Director to ensure best-in-class user experience.

Requirements

  • Shipped a minimum of 1 game title as a Lead Designer or Design Director on a high-profile MMO, RPG or other systems heavy game.
  • Demonstrable track-record of managing and mentoring a game design team.
  • Solid understanding of game design process and methodology.
  • An excellent grasp of numbers, especially with respect to game modelling techniques.
  • Fantastic games knowledge (both classic and contemporary), especially in MMORPGs.
  • A demonstrable analytical and iterative approach to solving design problems.
  • Strong organizational skills and experience of establishing enduring processes.
  • Ability to balance the impacts of deadlines and resources with creative and quality requirements.
  • Strong time management skills with a proven ability to focus on priorities and meet deadline.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with executive level staff on a broad range of topics, and convey complex ideas to audiences of varying design expertise.
  • Comfortable getting hands-on where necessary in design documentation tasks.
  • Experience with the UE4 engine and blueprints is a real plus.

*still waiting for an announcement from them*

Well they've at the very least given a license to Cyanide for their Werewolf: The Apocalypse game they are making.
