Techland, the studio behind the Dying Light series, is hiring for a new project. The project is an unannounced AAA open-world action role-playing game, no other details were revealed but the studio is hiring an additional 70 team members hinting that it could be working on multiple projects at the same time. The team working on the new IP already has developers from CD Projekt Red, Guerilla Games and Arkane Studios.

The new IP already has the following veteran developers working on it:

  • Arkadiusz Borowik – narrative lead for The Witcher 2 & 3
  • Karolina Stachyra – narrative director for The Witcher 3
  • Bartosz Ochman – open-world director for The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077
  • Mario Maltezos – creative director for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Mad Max
  • David McClure – lead game designer for Deathloop
  • Kevin Quaid – lead animator for Horizon Zero Dawn

Here’s what Paweł Marchewka, CEO of Techland, had to say about the project:

We’re very happy with what we have accomplished with the Dying Light franchise so far. Moreover, our journey with Dying Light 2 Stay Human has only just begun as we plan to support this game for at least five years, with its scope and size matching, if not exceeding, what we have provided our community with during post-launch support for its predecessor.

At the same time, our ambition is to introduce a brand new IP that is vastly different from what we have been doing for the past several years. We want to create a fully next-gen experience. A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity.

While we cannot share more details about this project now, we’re all truly invested in it and looking forward to showing it to gamers when the time is right.
