Tomorrow, Bungie will reveal what the future holds for Destiny 2, but what about its next project? It seems like it’s going to be a role-playing game (RPG) set in a mystical realm filled with dungeons and necromancers. A post on Bungie’s jobs website — first spotted by The Game Post — said the following.
Bungie is seeking a highly technical, creative, and team-oriented Investment Designer who is excited to help us build our next great IP. You are the glue between the sword and the reward. You will work in tandem with our sandbox and economy teams to build and distribute items to our players. Living inside a giant database of hundreds of baubles, weapons, and armor is nothing new to you. And neither is building a system to cleverly distribute those items in a necromancer’s dungeon. If this sounds like you, or a challenge you’d like to take on, we’d love to hear from you… Design, build, and tune a wide variety of pursuit and loot systems… Build and maintain the database of in-game items… Design for an overarching game economy and the constraints it presents… Experience designing, documenting, and executing itemization, investment, or any other fundamental RPG game system at any scale.
It’ll be interesting to see what the team comes up with. I’m hoping for a Destiny 2 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim hybrid. It seems like there’s going to be sword-based combat since the listing says, “You are the glue between the sword and the reward.”
Best of the best
It’ll last you a couple of months
