A couple of months ago, a to-do list appeared for a Bungie multiplayer systems designer, who would be working on a new game in the company. Ara, another the listing has been published, looking for an "incubation sandbox designer" or someone to design the combat system for a "multiplayer action game", which will be a new IP address for the Destiny developer.
"Do you have a mission to create games that bring players together in deeply invested communities?" asks for the job list. "Do you spend your time thinking about how different game mechanics can be put together to create amazing team play moments? Action and readability? "
Note that the game in question is currently in “incubation,” meaning it is early in development.
Could this list, and that of a couple of months ago, be related to the game itself? My Magic-8 Ball says, "I'm an obsolete reference, stop using me" and there's not enough information to say it one way or another. On the one hand, they look very similar, don't they? But on the other hand, Bungie has said yes multiple ideas in the initial development, including something "cheerful and whimsical."
In other Bungie job news, Resident Evil producer Peter Fabiano recently jumped Capcom’s ship to Bungie as the company’s new director of production.
