Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is hiring for a “brand new single-player adventure.” 

According to a tweet from the Creative Director of Respawn, Mohammad Alavi (opens in new tab), the studio is “developing a brand new singleplayer adventure” and is looking for a lead technical game designer (opens in new tab), senior technical game designer (opens in new tab), senior combat designer (opens in new tab), and senior-level designer (opens in new tab) to join the project.

Each of the job listings appears to be recruiting for the early stages of the project, for example, the senior level designer role listing states that successful candidates will “have a direct hand in shaping a new game from the ground up,” which sounds as if there’s still a way to go until we find out anything about the upcoming title. 

One of the job listings does give us a rough idea of what this project might include however as the senior combat designer does require the person who gets the job to be “well-versed in the areas of enemy design, AI creation and iteration, combat/weapons, skills/progression and the execution of thrilling combat encounters.” This listing also confirms the game’s status noting that “the project is in its early stages.”

Respawn Entertainment is known for not only developing Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, but also Titanfall 1 and 2, and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. Late last year it was rumored that the team was working on a Titanfall 3, however the tweet shared by Alavi does state that this is a “brand new” game. That isn’t to say that fans of the series should give up all hope, just that the roles currently advertised probably aren’t to work on any new Titanfall game. 

To further prove this, earlier this year head of Respawn Entertainment Vince Zampella also shared other job listings which gave applicants the opportunity "to join a compact incubation team currently developing a brand new IP." It’s possible that the same team that was hired back in April is now being expanded with the current job listings, or that Respawn is working on multiple new upcoming titles. 

This article was originally published in July 2021. In May 2022, Respawn officially announced Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a sequel set five years after the events of Fallen Order.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
