They are looking for a creative director for a project, perhaps a ‘hero shooter’, which this time will use a third-person perspective.
Bungie, known for their first-person action games -Halo , Destiny- , are preparing a new license that this time will lean towards third-person action . Some job offers had insinuated him by asking for people with experience in this type of game, but his latest message leaves no room for doubt. At this time they have not revealed what will come after Destiny 2 with Sony but they did intend to create something original before 2025.
His latest job offer is looking for a creative director “who will lead to define the vision and characteristics of a new third-person action game at Bungie “, it can be read. “You will work with the project leaders and the executive team to create and build on a document, a list of functions and technical aspects.” This work will encompass various playable prototypes to ensure that they do not deviate from the original vision and will directly participate in the creation of these projects during all phases of development.
There are other jobs for level designers and scenario artists that also speak to experience with character action games and third-person camera. PvP -player versus player- was also mentioned.
A Bungie hero shooter ?
In 2018 Bungie registered the Matter brand of which we still do not know what it belongs to. In May 2021 , another trademark was also registered that aimed to be related to an action game with heroes – in the style of Overwatch or Valorant -. Could all these clues belong to the same great project? If so, taking into account that they would have been working on it for about four years, it is likely that we will get out of doubt very soon.
“Do you spend time thinking about how different mechanics can make for awesome team moments?” asks Bungie. “Are you excited to learn how to make gameplay that cares about player intent, action feel, and readability?” the studio said of one of its incubating projects.
