Palworld devs put out a call for more staff as it struggles to keep up with the game’s massive success

To the surprise of probably no one, Palworld developer Pocketpair is struggling to keep up with the game’s success, so it’s looking to bring on more staff.

We all know the deal by now: Palworld is a ridiculously popular game, so much so that across Steam and Xbox it’s managed to hit 19 million players. That popularity has had some detrimental effects too, like the apparently very high server costs that Pocketpair now needs to pay so that everyone can keep playing. Now, it seems like the latest way Pocketpair is finding it difficult to keep up with demand is a serious case of being understaffed. Earlier this week, Pocketpair shared that it’s currently hiring staff in all positions, as the studio needs the help in every aspect of development.

“At Palworld, we still have a lot to do, but we are overwhelmingly short of people to join us!” reads a tweet from the Japanese Palworld Twitter account (as translated by PC Gamer). “We are looking for people with experience in any type of engine, so if you are interested in creating a completely new type of game, please apply!” This was followed up with a tweet linking to its jobs page, which is also available in English, so if you’re desperate to make Pals that players can give guns to, it seems like you might have a chance.
