A job posting for an unannounced Bungie title has fans wondering what the next project will be for the Destiny 2 developer.
2022 has already been a wild year for Destiny developer Bungie. The former Halo developers were bought by Sony for a whopping $3.6 billion in January 2022, following a string of big-money acquisitions across the games industry.
They also celebrated the launch of Destiny 2’s Witch Queen expansion, which we gave high praise.
Fans have long speculated about Bungie’s next move as a company after working on the Destiny series for nearly eight years. Now, company job listings are starting to give clues as to what might lie ahead for the next IP.
Bungie job postings point to the next project
A few entries Bungie’s jobs page have piqued player interest in keywords related to possible gameplay and a competitive cycle around the title.
One of the listings is for an “Incubation Contract Environment Artist” for an “unannounced multiplayer action game.”
Another job for the unannounced game is “Incubation Contract Level Designer” with required skills including “Experience working on character-oriented third-person action games (platformers, isometric, etc.)”.
The unannounced title could be a third-person game, although that could change slightly as development progresses.
Bungie has in the past touted a project titled Matter, the tentative name for a game with a 2025 release window. The company has also said that their mysterious next game after Destiny 2 will be esports-ready.
Matter could be a third-person game with a competitive streak, but for now we can only speculate as the company slowly unveils its post-Destiny plans.
