The interesting and exciting news comes from the Naughty Dog for the Last of Us II. The company posted a new job for a developer with a PC programming background for their team. The team is working at The Last of Us II for PlayStation 4, and their requirement is for a graphics programmer to join them. This sounds good because if they need a PC developer, this is leading us to think that the game could come to PC users as well.
The job requirement is saying that the Naughty Dog is hiring a graphic programmer for developing and implementing rendering techniques for the Last of Us II, both new and existing ones. So far, having good chances to be selected in the Naughty Dog team is to have programming experience for console or PC, to understand the GPU architectures they have, and some experience with APIs.
