PixelOpus is one of PlayStation’s more creative first-party teams, with the studio’s relatively recent Concrete Genie being a particular standout on the PlayStation 4. And it looks like it’s gearing up for a new next-gen project, with creative director Dominic Robilliard revealing on LinkedIn that the developer is expanding. “We’re currently looking for two engineers to join us on our new and exciting PlayStation 5 adventure,” he said.
The roles include a Senior Game Engine Programmer and a Gameplay Programmer, although there are no hints to what the studio is working on in the listings. Both jobs mention that candidates will have the opportunity to “work with next-gen hardware”, but stop short of teasing any specific details. It’s almost impossible to predict what the team could be making next, as this is a small developer that’s given a lot of leeway to do what it wants.

Cool news. I liked Concrete Genie very much…can not wait to see what is the next adventure!
Concrete Genie was a massive improvement over Entwined imo, so I’m curious to see what this team does next.
Hopefully this one doesnt include a glitch stopping you from getting the final trophy needed for the plat. Grr.
I really loved Concrete Genie , one of my favorite games of 19′ . So I’m excited for what’s next 👌🏾
The replayability of this game was great, well I say replayability but it was due to the game crashing numerous times, (whilst saving) meaning you had to start the game from scratch
Nice, Entwined was good game and Concrete Genie was an awesome departure. They’re clearly a very creative team.
I’m encouraged that PixelOpus is working on something, so hopefully the dramatically poor sales performance of Concrete Genie hasn’t put the studio on the chopping block. I really liked the game and I really value these creative smaller titles to add variety to the PlayStation buffet.
