Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends and Titanfall, is hiring for a new unannounced single player project.
Several job roles are currently advertised on the Respawn careers website, all as part of a ‘new single-player team’. Mohammad Avi, the creative director at Respawn, promoted the new roles, saying: “We’re developing a brand new singleplayer adventure from Respawn Entertainment. We’re a small, but ambitious team with a history of dreaming big and making splashes. Come work with us.”
What could it be?
Not much is given away about what the new team will be working on. However, it might be the new IP that we learned about back in April. Back then, another job listing appeared on Respawn’s site. The team was looking for a sixth coder to add to a team working on a brand new series.
A short description of the unannounced project read: “pioneer new ways to enable adventuring until the heat death of the universe”. That doesn’t give too much away, but it would indicate that the project is yet another sci-fi inspired plot akin to the studio’s previous games.
If these hires are indeed for the new project that was teased in April, then the studio must be looking to progress it further. The four new hires that it’s looking for are all senior positions, indicating that the concept of the new game is ready to start needing direction.
As for when we’ll see this new project, it’s impossible to tell – though it likely won’t be for a few years yet. Respawn is clearly hard at work on several projects, too. Much of the team is still keeping Apex Legends ticking over with the next season ‘Emergence’ beginning next month. The team is also working on a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order, although we haven’t seen that yet.
