Sega Hardlight studio is working on a Sonic mobile game
The company is looking for a lead artist.
Sega’s Hardlight studio is currently working on a brand new Sonic mobile game, and according to a job listing on GameIndustry.biz, the company is looking to hire a lead artist.
An ideal candidate “will understand the limitations of a mobile game but still push the quality towards console levels.”
Here’s what the listing reads:
“As a Lead Artist, you will be at the forefront of one of our new titles. You will help drive both the artistic vision and the internal art team to produce high-quality art through effective communication, collaboration, detailed planning, and active mentorship.”
We don’t know what kind of game this will be in the end. The only thing we have is the following description:
“You will be hands-on, creating highly compelling artwork that meets the visual and technical requirements of the game whilst serving as the benchmark for artistic excellence and work ethic.
You will understand the limitations of a mobile game but still push the quality towards console levels. Being part of Sega, you enjoy and have experience in creating stylized art, exciting worlds, and colorful characters.”
Until this point, Handlight have developed six Sonic mobile games in total. These games include Sonic Dash,Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, andSonic Forces: Speed Battle. Of course, all of them are runners. We will see whether the new game will follow in their footsteps.
