It looks like the “next big action game universe” Bungie is currently building with Activision might just be an action RPG.

The studio is looking for a writing lead for the storyline of the new title, according to a job listing on its website, with the developer especially keen on writers who provide a “branching or non-linear narrative experience”.

On that nugget of info alone, Gamespot suggests it could be an action RPG in a similar form like Mass Effect 2 or Deus Ex.

The developer announced last week it had signed a ten-year deal with Activision for full publishing and distribution rights to the new IP:  Bungie will maintain full control on the series.

In the meantime, the studio’s currently focusing on Halo: Reach, which launched its multiplayer beta earlier tonight.
