Developer Inventive Meeting has teased the subsequent challenge from members of its Alien: Isolation workforce, posting numerous job adverts regarding the title alongside a picture that appears like our first glimpse of the challenge. The picture is clearly marked “not consultant of gameplay” and accommodates a number of components nodding to the job advertisements and Sega, together with somewhat Sonic in area, so take this extra as a flavoured trace of what is to come back.
Nonetheless, it’s clearly indicative of components of the sport, as a result of the gun shares a number of options with this weapon background artwork from the blogpost first saying the sport. Different factors to note can be the customized components of the gun, decals and keychains, the chunky tape deck that means a retro-futurist aesthetic, and… OK, I’ve no concept what the inflatable unicorn is about.

That is the primary we have heard of the sport since District 9 director Neill Blomkamp visited the studio for a “behind-the-scenes look” about two years in the past. The job adverts all start with the next boilerplate textual content: “Inventive Meeting’s award-winning workforce behind Alien: Isolation are exploring new frontiers with a brand-new and thrilling first-person shooter IP.”
Trying via the adverts exhibits up some further small nuggets. One makes use of the outline “tactical shooter“, whereas others make clear one thing we already knew, which is that the IP is Inventive Meeting’s personal. So yeah: not Alien: Isolation 2.
Most telling maybe is that one position is for a Dwell Product Director: “The Dwell Product Director will personal post-launch Product Administration of the sport, together with the Product Roadmap, Retention & Engagement Technique and Recreation Analytics and would be the key level of contact for understanding and representing participant sentiment & behaviour.”
That most likely means service sport, as a result of one of many few particulars we all know for certain is that the sport shall be an “formidable multiplayer title [that] is a contemporary tackle the FPS style [and] will permit gamers to embrace a wide range of inventive playstyles.”
These hints might, in fact, come to naught. However Inventive Meeting’s success has made it the UK’s largest developer, so a challenge on that scale is actually not past it. Whether or not it will have the chops to go up in opposition to the giants of style, nonetheless, we’ll have to attend and see.
