A job listing posted on Japanese jobs website Mid-Tenshoku suggests that Bandai Namco, publisher of the Ace Combat series, may be looking for staff for a remaster of some of its older titles.
Among the job details, the “preferred” requirements detail someone with “deep knowledge of PlayStation 2 titles Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, and Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War.” The listing also mentions that anyone who has played the above titles should be able to have a conversation about mission details and how they cleared missions in those games.
Given that Bandai Namco has an Ace Combat game (Skies Unknown) already coming at some point this year, the likelihood is that the company is looking for someone to lead remasters of the listed titles. As the job listing asks for someone with experience managing a team of at least 15, whether these projects are to externally developed or made in-house is unclear.
