Job ads for a new game from Respawn are requiring applicants to have experience in third-person adventure games.
The art, animation and engineer roles all require knowledge of “working on 3rd person action/exploration games.”
We know Respawn is committed to Titanfall as a franchise and has already negotiated more in the series with publisher Electronic Arts.
Other requirements include working on “hero control/mechanics, enemy design, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, story, and boss encounters” – which all sound very video game-y to us.
Of course that’s not to say these ads are for more in the Titanfall series, they could be for a new project entirely.
But how likely is that in a world where big studios knuckle down on one big game and publishers don’t really like to take risks outside of a proven formula – so is this Titanfall 2 or a spin-off away from the main first-person shooter?
