A new job listing has appeared on Respawn Entertainment’s website searching for candidates to work on their next big project.
A new job advertisement for Lead Combat Designer has been added to Respawn Entertainment’s employment page, suggesting a new, undisclosed game.
While Respawn Entertainment didn’t give away ay further details in the job description, there is plenty of space to speculate about what we may see in the future.
The combat designer job listing is part of the “New Game Incubation Team,” section of the post and outlines the skills and qualities that applicants must possess. The organisation appears to be serious about this post, with lots of relevant experience criteria needed that would only enable industry experts to apply.
The job posting appears to be looking for someone to lead the combat design for an unnamed project’s “incubation team.”
Apart from the standard job post requirements of outstanding communication skills and collaboration, the advertisement does not specify if this is a new IP or an entry in an established franchise.
However, it does provide some fascinating details regarding the game’s engine, viewpoint, and present status.
Experience with Unreal Engine 4 is listed as an ideal candidate ability, implying that the game would not employ the modified Source engine that titles like Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends are known to currently use.
The job posting requests a candidate who has quick prototyping experience, implying that the primary gameplay concepts have not yet been decided by the team so it is anyones guess which route the title will take.
Most intriguingly, the advertisement specifically requests people who are enthusiastic about first-person shooter games, suggesting that despite other characteristics of the title it is still likely to revolve around a first person shooter set up.
Fans will have to wait it out for an announcement on a new title to see what is in store for the future, but in the meantime be sure to check back with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
