While PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is far from being the biggest selling game of the holiday season, apparently it has done well enough for Sony to merit a sequel, as a couple of job listings at SuperBot Entertainment indicate that the studio is gearing up for what appears to be a followup to this year's brawler.
NeoGAF user Nirolak spotted job listings for an art director and game designer at SuperBot, and the descriptions that accompany each listing strongly suggest that the studio's next project is PSABR 2. The game designer will need to have “a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale [and a] knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics a serious plus”.
The art director job description only further supports the development of a sequel, directly referencing last month's fighter. “A project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished product.”
