The job listing explains: “Classic games run via emulation of legacy PlayStation platforms. As a classics engineer, you would work closely with a group of other engineers, producers, and QA teams to fix bugs, add new features, and develop new emulators.”

Other requirements include expert knowledge of the C/C++ software, as well as experience of developing cross-platform software.

The job listing states a preference for a candidate with “hands-on experience with AA or AAA game development for PlayStation Consoles”.

Meanwhile, Jim Ryan, CEO and president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, previously revealed his ambitions for the PlayStation 5 console.

He said: “I hope and really believe the PlayStation 5 will be Sony’s biggest and best and most loved PlayStation yet.

“I would also like to see a world where the games we make at PlayStation can be enjoyed by many tens of millions of people. Perhaps hundreds of millions of people.”
