Tesla Hiring New Game Development Team

Tesla electric vehicles have become very expensive gaming console ever since June 2019. Elon Musk’s auto company is expanding its gaming prowess with some new game-focused job listings centered in Austin, Texas.

Electrek reported that hidden among the massive amount of job listings for Gigafactory Texas are some software-focused jobs including a video game engineer, software engineer, and rendering engineer. The company already had a gaming team based in Bellevue, Washington back in 2018, Musk tweeted about hiring gaming talent for a project that undoubtedly culminated in the launch of Tesla Arcade in June 2019.

The job listings are more focused on building a gaming platform and not on developing singular games. The video games engineer listing reads as follows:


Tesla Arcade games are all currently licensed, the available games include Fallout Shelter and Cuphead, so it does not seem that the company is planning to develop any first-party games just yet. The company once approached Nintendo about Mario Kart, the company wanted to license an in-car version, but the gaming giant refused and they went for a lesser-known racing title called Beach Buggy Racing 2 instead.
