Square Enix Is Recruiting Game Engine Programmers For Its New Luminous Studio Engine

Recommended Videos

Square Enix’s Business Division 2, the division behind Final Fantasy XV and its ever-expanding universe, is recruiting game engine programmers to help work on their new game engine.


The job is mostly work on system development and the Luminous Studio Pro game engine, which we saw in use during a tech demo of Final Fantasy XV running on PC with GTX 1080Ti at GDC 2017 back in March.


The work will require checkups, research, development on the next-generation game engine’s core features. Square Enix offers candidates the opportunity to work and grow with the company with an environment featuring the latest technology for working on real-time graphics and pre-rendered movies.


However, it’s a highly demanding position that requires research and development using new technology, a global approach in game development, being active in the community, and various other challenges.


Those who are accepted will also be required to discuss technicalities with top-level engineers and may even attend conferences such as GDC, CEDEC, and SIGGRAPH to present their latest work.


Square Enix registered the trademark for Luminous Studio Pro back in October 2016, shortly before the release of Final Fantasy XV, and so far we’ve only seen it put to use in Final Fantasy XV’s PC tech demo. By the sounds of it, we’ll be seeing more of the next-generation engine in the near future.
