Published 07/24/2021, 12:00 PM EDT


After the tremendous success of Destiny 2, Bungie is hiring for a brand new IP. Destiny 2 was extremely profitable for Bungie and it looks like the studio isn’t going to stop anytime soon. A few days back, Bungie posted a job listing for the position of senior marketing manager. The new marketing manager has to drive awareness, growth as well as sales for the upcoming IP.

The fact that Bungie is now looking more into marketing strategies suggests that the brand new game is very close to its reveal. Rumors also suggest that the upcoming new IP could be a free-to-play game. It is certainly not Destiny 3, as there are multiple big expansions coming from Destiny 2. It is expanding into multiple other media such as television shows, movies, and much more. Well, it looks like the release of Destiny 3 is quite far away.

The job listing itself doesn’t really give much away about the new mysterious game. However, under the list of skills required, the studio requests someone who has experience in scale live operations, Free-to-play, cellular, games as a service (this is quite similar to Destiny 2), and mobile. This reveals something about the game.

Bungie wouldn’t list all these specific things down if the new game isn’t something alongside this track. Back in 2018, Bungie filed a trademark for a brand new video game. They named the game ‘Matter’. Bungie also filled another trademark for BungieCon. This was published at the beginning of this year (2021). In February 2021, Bungie also revealed its plans to expand the studio.
