Last year, People Can Fly, the developer behind Outriders, Gears of War, and Bulletstorm announced that they are working on a brand-new original AAA action-adventure IP with a working name “Project Dagger”, which is in partnership with Take-Two Interactive.

Recently, the company has published 70+ job positions on its website for this IP. Looking at some of these job positions, we might have some details about this new yet-to-be-announced title.

One of the job positions for Writer reveals that the game will feature “compelling original story content consistent with company philosophy and vision.” The majority of these positions have a requirement for individuals with experience with online or multiplayer games, which, putting it together, we might have another co-op story-driven game from PCF, similar to Outriders.
