Relic Entertainment, the Vancouver-based studio behind the Company of Heroes and Homeworld games, is looking for people to develop free-to-play games.

Relic Entertainment, the Vancouver-based studio behind the Company of Heroes and Homeworld series, is looking for people to develop free-to-play games.

Job listings on the studio's website include three positions for free-to-play titles: senior designer, creative director, and executive producer. Part of the senior designer's job would be to "design and implement progression and monetization systems in order to create top quality free-to-play (FTP) experiences," while the executive producer would serve as the "creative and business visionary, as well as, the ambassador for Relic's free-to-play (FTP) products, ensuring long term critical and commercial success."

These games would not be Relic's first free-to-play titles. The studio made Company of Heroes Online, a free-to-play massively multiplayer version of Company of Heroes, and launched it in Asia in 2009 before bringing it to North America in 2010.

Relic is currently working on Company of Heroes 2, which is due out on PC in early 2013.
