A new job posting has fans of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2 excited over the possibility that the game might be heading to the PC.
The LinkedIn job posting for the role of a graphics programmer first piqued the internet’s interest due to the references to PC-specific skills such as a “thorough understanding of current GPU architectures.”
Here are the various skills and requirements stated in the job posting:
- Thorough understanding of current GPU architectures (AMD GCN, NVIDIA CUDA)
- Experience with DirectX12, Vulkan, or other modern graphics or compute APIs
- Console or PC Programming experience
Of course, Naughty Dog could just be looking for someone with a well-rounded set of skills but it is interesting to note that their requirements do not relate to the PlayStation 4 architecture, or even the PlayStation 5.
On the job posting, Naughty Dog specifically mentioned they are looking for someone with an understanding of NVIDIA GPUs, whereas the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 both use AMD graphics.
With all that said, it only stands to reason that the developers be looking for someone with PC programming experience because they have a PC port planned for the future.
In other news, Horizon Zero Dawn has also been rumoured to be heading to the PC.
