Bungee Posted new job listings that appear to suggest that the next IP other than Destiny will be a multiplayer character action game. This is still in the early stages of development.

Destiny developer Bungie I posted a job advertisement For the “Incubation Sandbox Designer” of the new “Currently Incubating Multiplayer Action Game” that sheds some light on what the developers are working on.

In the job listing, potential applicants are “[experienced in] We are working on a character-oriented action game. “[familiar] In a highly competitive gaming environment / e-sports. “

In addition, the developer asks if potential candidates for the job are thinking about how the team works in a more competitive game than anything else, and how the mechanics interweave. Enthusiastically encourage applicants to create compelling gameplay moments.

“Are you thinking about how to combine different game mechanics to create great team play moments?” Ask the ad. “Are you excited to learn how to create gameplay that emphasizes player intent, action game feel, and readability?”

Sure, developers seem to be working on tuning Bleeding Edge, Overwatch, or Valorant rather than an experience like Destiny.

However, unlike the latter pair of these titles, it seems that the focus here is on action, not on shooting. It’s still unclear if this can be tied to Bungee’s previously teased whimsical loot game, which may or may not be called Matter.

We know that the bungee is expanding significantly. The developers will open a new office in Amsterdam in 2022 to act as a publishing and marketing hub for the studio. In addition, the ever-growing headquarters office in Bellevue, Washington, “supports multiple project teams, including the outside world. In the future, the” universe of fate. “

This work seems to accompany one of the mysterious titles other than Destiny.
