Limbo and Inside studio Playdead’s next game is an open-world title “set in a remote corner of the universe”, job listings on its website have confirmed.
It was previously revealed that the upcoming game from the Copenhagen, Denmark-based company would be a third-person sci-fi title.
“Our current project is a 3rd person, open world, science fiction adventure built for multiple platforms on Unreal Engine and published by Epic Games Publishing,” reads a job listing for a technical director.
The title takes place in “remote corner of the universe”, says a job advert for a gameplay programmer.
Playdead currently employs 50 creative professionals across its Danish and Lithuanian development studios and is “still looking to grow”.
It has 10 open positions listed on its website, which features the following artwork for its next game.
“Gen Design, Remedy, and Playdead are among the most innovative and talented studios in the industry, with strong visions for their next games,” Hector Sanchez, head of Epic Games Publishing, said at the time. “They will have full creative control, while Epic will provide a solid foundation of project funding and services.”
Playdead’s Arnt Jenson also said of the deal: “This is an art house studio. We can maintain the integrity of the organisation and all the games.”
