Naughty Dog looking for 'next-gen' character artists

Uncharted developer Naughty Dog is looking toward the future generation of consoles, according to new job listings. The latest job listing at Naughty Dog indicates the studio is looking to expand its character artist roster, specifically citing the person would be tasked with helping to build "next-gen games."

The job listing, discovered by GameSpot, say that new artists will be expected to make "million-poly models game-ready." For comparison, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves featured an average character polygon count of "80,000" [via GameTrailers].

It is unclear if the project is related to any of Naughty Dog's current properties (Uncharted, Jak & Daxter) or something new.

The California-based, Sony-subsidiary is currently in the middle of developing a fresh intellectual property entitled The Last Of Us.
