Dying Light developers are working on an AAA open world game.
It seems that studio Techland, which recently introduced us to the survival and parkour game Dying Light 2, is working on a first-class AAA fantasy open world game project.
This is what was discovered through a new recruitment announcement issued by the developer, which seeks to include more developers in the studio, as it came in the following announcement:
Are you ready to start a new and exciting journey with Techland? We employ an unreleased AAA rated open world RPG in a fantasy setting!
The studio currently has nearly 70 positions across disciplines including specialists in animation, art, design, development and production.
The new announcement includes the position of Creative Director who will be responsible for defining a clear and creative vision for the game and laying the foundations for the game in several important directions such as, meaning, experience, context, player imagination, world, etc.
The team responsible for the new IP includes a number of former CD Projekt Red employees including open-world director of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Bartosz Uchmann, narrative director Carolina Stachera, and narrative leader Arcadius Borwick.
Techland’s latest game, Dying Light 2, was released on February 4 on PCs and home game consoles, and five million copies were sold during its launch month, according to the latest stats the developer shared with us.
The developer also said last April that the original Dying Light had sold more than 20 million copies. The game recently received a new generation update to improve performance on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
