According to Creative Assembly’s careers page, shared via Reddit, the Total War developer is currently looking for a senior combat designer for a “new project” set in a medieval fantasy setting, who will “contribute to delivering world-class combat gameplay and emotion.”
The job role also indicated that the hired developer will need to bring their “in-depth understanding and passion for 3rd person melee combat coupled with experience in designing, developing and balancing combat systems.”
It’s unclear at this time whether the new project will be a new Total War game, but the specifications also add that it’s desirable if the hired developer has familiar knowledge with “previous Total War games, especially Total War: Warhammer.”
Additionally, Creative Assembly clarifies that it’s essential the hired person will need to have a “deep understanding of third-person action melee combat as both a designer and a player” as well as good knowledge of “motion and animation design.”
It’s also stated that the new project will need someone who has experience delivering a Game as a Service – meaning the mystery title will likely include monetized features.
Creative Assembly has yet to publicly announce it’s developing a new triple-A title and seeing as how it’s still looking for a senior combat designer, progress is likely in the early stages.
