CD Projekt RED have a knack for bringing their virtual worlds to life in incredible ways, and by all accounts, it’s looking like they want to do the same with the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. They’ve spoken about the varied, dense, and fully handcrafted world of the RPG quite a bit, and it really looks like they’e putting their money where their mouth is.
A recent job ad sees the Polish developer looking to recruit for a very specific position- an “In-game Ads Illustrator”. The applicant will be responsible for, as the name suggests, illustrating advertisements (fictional ones) for “consumer services of the dark future” – everything from paramilitary medical care and guns to fast moving consumer goods and cyberware – that players will see within the game’s Nighty City itself.
“Our In-game Ads Team is looking for an Illustrator to bolster their ranks and make CD Projekt RED’s vision of cyberpunk even more fascinating,” reads the job ad. “As an In-game Ads Illustrator, you’ll take part in creating ads for an array of consumer services of the dark future — from paramilitary medical care, to guns, to fast moving consumer goods and cyberware.”
Cyberpunk 2077 currently remains without a release date, but CD Projekt RED are going to bring the RPG to E3 this year, which they say will be the most important show in their history as a developer. Rumours suggest we could be getting a release date at E3, and based on other recent hirings the developer has been looking to make, that might just end up happening.
