Austin-based Zenimax-owned developers also hiring for multiple positions

CryEngine will be under the hood of the next titles from both Arkane Texas and BattleCry Studios.

This was revealed by a tweet from Zenimax's HR Manager Ashley Pierce, who also said there are various positions available at both studios.

Both BattleCry and Arkane are based in Austin, Texas – the Arkane studio behind Dishonored is based in Lyon, France.

Arkane's Texas arm was known to be working on the elusive Prey 2, while BattleCry is still working on its first project, having only formed in 2012. BattleCry is run by a number of ex-BioWare staff, including some that worked on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The two studios are owned by Bethesda parent ZeniMax Media.

The latest version of Crytek's powerful game engine is the technology behind Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome, upcoming shooter Homefront 2 and Kickstarter champion Star Citizen.
