Tesla Wants Better Games In Cars

CEO Elon Musk and Tesla want people to know that their cars are the vehicles of the future! But what’s the best way to show that to the world? I’d argue hover cars are the next logical step, but maybe it’s too big of a leap right now. So, instead they’re aiming to bring top tier video games to the dashboard.

Watching movies and playing mobile games in cars isn’t anything new, in fact, Elon Musk was even able to get Cyberpunk 2077 running in his car, the Tesla Model S Plaid. That’s a feat in itself considering most PlayStation 4s and some PCs couldn’t even get it to run. But, Tesla is ramping up their efforts to bring gaming to a number of their cars.

As reported by GameRant, a position has recently been listed for Tesla looking for a Video Games Engineer, Infotainment Software. The listing goes on to explain what they want for the position, someone who will have the “incredibly rare opportunity to help build a video games platform.” That seems like a very oddly specific request for a company in the business of building cars.

I know that Tesla’s are suppose to be able to drive themselves, but you should probably still keep your eyes on the road. I’d prefer the Witcher and Fortnite stay on consoles and tablets and off the dashboard for the foreseeable future.
