According to a new job listing, the Destiny 2 developer Bungie is now hiring a new Game Director for a PvP-first game.
The job ad states that the game director will be “responsible for the creative vision of a new PvP-first product at Bungie. Your job is to forge the gameplay mechanics, systems, narrative, and social opportunities into a unified whole that sing in harmony”.
“Lead the creative effort of Project Leadership Team to define clear product pillars for design, art, narrative, and engineering for a new PvP-first game.”
In the Required Skills section, it says the candidate must “have enthusiasm and deep understanding of competitive PvP games and how to innovate around that space“.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a job ad for Bungie’s competitive project. In fact, we have been seeing job ads for Bungie’s competitive games since 2020.
There have been several implications that the company is working on a new Destiny competitive game as well–one of the major ones being a new job listing posted last month.
Recently, Jordan Patz, Design Director behind Apex Legends Mobile at Respawn Entertainment joined Bungie (opens in new tab) as Game Director. It’s unclear as to what project Patz will be directing at Bungie. The company has also hired Mark Yelverton, a former 343i Director of Business and Operations.
