The subsequent development from the parents of Total War will rely on the Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine.
Creative Assembly, best known for the Total War series, remains tight-lipped about its upcoming new game. After it was revealed four years ago that the team behind Alien Isolation were working on a tactical shooter, a new job posting has now revealed that the project will use Unreal Engine 5 as its graphics engine and will be a new IP.
Specifically, SEGA has posted two job openings for senior game programmer and technical project manager positions through its channels. Both with the claim of “creating an unforgettable gaming experience in a new project as part of a new franchise team”, according to SegmentNext.
What else do we know about the new game?
We know from Creative Assembly’s website that the new IP will have a sci-fi theme. In fact, in 2019, it was revealed that Neill Blomkamp, best known as the creator of District 9 and other sci-fi films, has been signed on to the project. Furthermore, one of Destiny’s most senior designers has been signed on for 2021, confirming the Total War progenitor’s plans to create a multiplayer offering.
With the backdrop that they’re looking to release a “super triple-A game” in the first half of the decade, adding that it’s an FPS developed by a European studio, all eyes were quickly on Creative Assembly after the announcement.
