Further evidence of Creative Assembly’s new project have surfaced online. The Alien Isolation developer is currently hiring staff again, this time it’s looking for a Senior Gameplayer and AI programmer.
They’re quite specific too, stating: “Creative Assembly’s award-winning team behind Alien: Isolation are exploring new frontiers with a brand-new and exciting First Person Tactical Shooter IP.”
The British developer is hiring for the “console team”, which suggests that the shooter will be available for PS4 and Xbox One.
Previous evidence that Creative Assembly, who also worked on Halo Wars 2 and the Total War franchise, is working on a sci-fi first-person shooter surfaced on the September 2018 cover of MCV magazine.
There was speculation that it is linked to a big recruitment drive by the company. Labeled as their biggest multi-format project yet, it’s said to be created by the same team behind Alien Isolation for the PS4.
Check out the cover.
Whether it’s Alien Isolation 2 is unknown, but the West Sussex-based developer did hint at a sequel in 2017. In an issue of the Official PlayStation magazine, it was also claimed that the studio is working on a new Alien game.
Time to get out the big guns…
