    Naughty Dog Working on Next-Gen Game with 'Million Poly Character Models'


    There is a Job Posting on Naughty Dog's Career Page for a character artist. It appears to be for a game in development for the next generation of consoles. You can view the page here.

    Responsibilties

    - This digital sculptor will be responsible for making million poly models game ready, and support highest-res characters for renderings

    - This individual will create clean, deformable and efficient models, extract normal maps from high-res version and sculpt morph targets for use within a Maya/ZBrush pipeline

    Requirements & Skills


    - Prior professional experience with normal map extraction of human models for next-gen games

    -
    An advanced knowledge of human anatomy is required

    - This position is best suited for modelers who prefer to sculpt and paint texture for their models as well

    - Candidates should be able to work with minimal input and be comfortable working in a team environment

    - Candidates could expect to take an offsite test.
    The Naughty Dog Crew split into two teams, one to work on Uncharted 3, and the other for The Last of Us. Now considering Uncharted 3 has came and gone, we can now guess what the other team are planning.

    If I had that kind of knowledge, I would apply in a blink of an eye, but that's not to be.

    I'm just posting this news as it's next generation related.

    To put a million into perspective, Uncharted 2 had 30,000 Polygons for each character, and Kratos on God of War III only had a 20,000 Polygon Count. It's quite the leap in technological advancement.

    I hear ya. And thanks for the perspective, you saved me the trouble of Googling it. This is great news as I'm a huge NDI fan.

    Please ND, make (a proper) Jak 4.
    But the more I think about it, how high-res can a cartoony character get?

    Why is everyone implying Jak 4?

    It's says right there:

    - Prior professional experience with normal map extraction of human models for next-gen games

    - An advanced knowledge of human anatomy is required
    I haven't played the Jak trilogy, but from what I've seen, there are no humans.

    Can anybody explain what exactly a "Poly" is? I have no clue what it is or what purpose it serves.

    I think it involves polygons (3+ sided shapes) that make up a character model. The more polygons, the more realism that is possible.

    Why not? This is for the Next Generation Playstation, if it's an Uncharted game that will be a really nice launch title, and will be worth buying a PS4 at launch.
