Bungie posts second job posting for “new Bungie IP!”
Bungie, the developer of the popular multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) game Destiny 2, has posted another job posting.
This time it’s for a “Contract Incubation Sandbox Designer” to work on the company’s last unannounced IP. As always, the list offers small details about the game, but offers a glimpse of what the title is in the process of becoming. Specifically, Bungie is now looking for someone to design combat systems in a way that “cares a great deal about player intent, action-playing feel, and readability.”
“Are you on a mission to create games that connect players in deeply invested communities? Do you spend your time thinking about how different game mechanics can come together to create amazing team moments?” The message read: “Bungie is looking for a Gameplay / Combat Designer to contribute to a multiplayer action game that is currently in incubation.”
The most important part of this, of course, is the “incubating” note at the very end. It’s a bit of a shortcut to begin with or in the early stages of development. It seems like everything Bungie is working on has finally gone beyond an intangible concept.
Some outlets believe the latter job could be linked to a separate listing published months before. The company recently hired a multiplayer systems designer to work on a project that would have been “comedic with light, whimsical characters.” However, it remains to be seen whether these two elements are concretely linked.
So if you’re interested in spending the next nine months working on what could be the next big hit from this prolific studio, do not hesitate to apply here.
We can’t wait to see what Bungie is working on behind the scenes.
