Respawn Entertainment might be working on a completely new game, judging by the company’s recent Career Page Update. So far, the job title remains shrouded, which means the title is a rather secretive one. No one knows what exactly the company is focusing on. Still, judging by the job listing, the company needs a “Lead Combat Designer,” who would be working on a new, unannounced video game title.
The job listing and the Lead Combat Designer role are in the “New Game Incubation Team” category and are very suitable for experienced veterans who’ve been working in the industry for a long time. According to the official job listing, Respawn Entertainment is looking for a skilled Lead Combat designer to join the incubation team for an unannounced project.
With elements such as enemy design, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, story, and boss encounters, we believe this might be a word about a profound action RPG type of game. It also requires solid experience with Unreal Engine 4, more precisely implementing character animations, script behavior trees, special effects, and system tuning.
The listing also asks for experience with rapid prototyping and passion about first-person shooter games, which combined with the perks and skills, story and boss encounters, it might be a word for another Star Wars game, or a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order, a game that was created with Unreal Engine 4. Well, considering the success of Fallen Order, it wouldn’t be weird to see another title of the same caliber.
