A job listing for a Senior Level Designer confirms that Titanfall developer, Respawn Entertainment, is working on a second non-Titanfall action/adventure style game.
Based on a new job listing, it appears that Respawn Entertainment is planning on taking on a second project while development continues on Titanfall 2. The posting confirms that the studio is now hiring designers specifically for two game development projects: one set in the Titanfall universe and the other being a new 3rd person action/adventure IP.
Specifically, the listing is seeking a Senior Level Designer that will able to “embrace and contribute to the project vision, breathing life into the gameplay world and helping define the moment to moment player experience.” With the position set to work on a couple of projects, one being an already successful IP, it shouldn’t be surprising that the studio is looking for someone experienced having at least five years in the industry and one game shipped.
This isn’t the first time players have heard about a second project over at the developer however. Respawn Entertainment CEO and co-founder Vince Zampella confirmed that a second title was in development but wouldn’t divulge any more details at that time. What fans can be assured of is that Stig Asmussen, former creative director on God of War III, is heading up that second non-Titanfall team. Thanks to the listing, fans now know that the game aims to be a third person action game.
Sadly, not much is known about Titanfall 2 either, with the team at Respawn choosing to bypass E3 last year in favor of continuing to work on the game which was probably very early on in development. One thing fans are well aware of is that the exclusivity deal tied to the first game is no longer in place as PlayStation 4 users will finally get to experience the act of dropping titans on the battlefield along side Xbox One and PC players.
Titanfall has proven to be a big success for the folks at Respawn Entertainment as the game managed to reach a big milestone late last year with over 10 million unique users across all platforms. As the game never released on a PlayStation console and its large install base, this is quite the achievement. The studio also bolstered their player base by making every piece of post-launch content free of charge to download last year on its first anniversary, which more than likely helped push those numbers even higher.
Are you excited to see what else the team at Respawn is capable of creating outside of a first person shooter? What do you think the studio is working on currently? Lets hear some ideas down in the comments.
Titanfall 2 is currently expected for release sometime in 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
