Ready at Dawn, the creator behind the PlayStation 4-exclusive The Order: 1886, has confirmed that the developer is gearing up for multiple new projects and will begin hiring new staff next month.
Writing on Twitter (via wccftech), Ready at Dawn’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Andrea Pessino, confirmed that the California-based developer is planning a number of ‘exciting’ new titles, although wouldn’t go into any further details on the subject. Could we possibly see a sequel to The Order: 1886? It’s not entirely impossible, as reports from earlier this year have indicated that Ready at Dawn is already formulating ideas for a follow-up.
While keeping mum on any details regarding the new projects, Pessino did confirm that his company will begin hiring for new staff nearer the Christmas holiday period. It’s also clear that whatever Ready at Dawn is working on has proved quite an enjoyable experience for Pessino and his team.
