A "prestigious triple-A title" is on the way from the studio behind the wonderful Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, a new job listing has revealed.
Ubisoft Milan is currently hiring for a full-time 3D animator, noting that a successful applicant would be working on the production of this mystery AAA game. The listing, spotted by VGC, doesn't give away too many details, but it does discuss the inclusion of bipeds and quadrupeds. Humans and animals confirmed!
"Ubisoft Milan is looking for talented 3D Animator to be involved in the production of a prestigious triple-A title.
He/She will give life to our beloved characters creating high quality keyframe animations for bipeds and quadrupeds.
He/she will also work closely with Game Designers, Artists and 3D Animators to integrate the work into the game and verifying that all the elements interact properly."
So, is this a sequel to Mario + Rabbids, or something else entirely? Well, before that game and its Donkey Kong Adventure DLC, Ubisoft Milan also worked on the likes of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, and a number of Just Dance titles, which could all potentially be classed as 'AAA'.
Last year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked about the likelihood of a Mario + Rabbids sequel but remained tight-lipped, saying, "We can't say much today, but we had a good relationship, so let's see what will come".
Looks like we'll have to wait and see.
