Destiny 2 developer Bungie is staffing up for a new IP, which according to the latest batch of job postings from the company, will feature competitive PvP multiplayer.
Not only that, but the as-yet unannounced title will feature eSports landscapes and mechanics “that provide strategic depth and opportunities for counterplay.”
Evidently the game is going to have a heavy multiplayer and competitive focus, as one of the required skills for the positions is ‘strong familiarity with global gaming markets and the competitive gaming/esports landscape.”
The job description for Multiplayer Systems Designer reads:
Are you on a mission to create games that bond players together into deeply invested communities? Do you spend your time deconstructing the latest PvP games to understand how they work? Do you analyse how teamplay dynamics are affected by everything from moment-to=moment abilities to high-level macro objective?
Bungie has previously said that it aims to ship at least one non-Destiny IP by 2025, although at this point the project is still very much in the early stages of development.
