Bungie job listings suggest it’s making a “third-person action esports” game

Looks like Bungie's breaking away from first-person for its new IP.

Between creating the Halo and Destiny franchises, Bungie is known for its fantastic first-person shooter design. Some new job listings suggest that it’s looking for a new perspective (literally) with its next IP.

Two new job requisitions (spotted by TheGamePost) strongly hint at what Bungie is planning. The first is for an associate gameplay designer, which lists “familiarity with the competitive gaming landscape/esports” and “experience working on character-focused action games.” Hero shooters are quite common, although several of the most notable examples like Apex Legends, Overwatch, and Valorant are played in first-person. There’s already an intriguing difference with this job listing.

The second position is a contract-level designer, and Bungie wants someone with “experience working on character-focused third-person action games (platformers, isometric, etc.)” and the same competitive/esports familiarity as before. This seems to set the project apart from first-person shooters even further, an interesting change of pace for Bungie. The mention of “isometric” action even brings a genre like MOBA to mind.

While Bungie fans wait for whatever is next, there’s plenty of content to dig into with Destiny 2, now that The Witch Queen expansion is here. We can help you build god rolls for Come to Pass, Father’s Sins, and more weapons as you work to take down Savathun.
