This was raised in another thread, but I thought the speculation could be fun

The job listing is clearly by a G3D recruiter as they specialize in finding game developers for various clients like Activision and Sony. Considering that the post was 2 months ago, it seems that work is well on its way. Hopefully we'll find out more about the game at Gamescom or E3 2018.

MS working on new games, recruiter says it's similar to Horizon to just give people looking for a job an idea = GAF will make this an interesting thread as they'll say MS has no originality due to recruiter language lol

Its worth noting that this dude is a recruiter for art stuff (VFX, 3D art) and he is looking for Enviromental artists tha can creat stuff in a similar art style. So ''Horizon Zero Dawn-like game'' might only refer to that and not the nature of the game itself at all

It's probably just an open world game. It's probably just to give an idea of what type of game you'll be working on.

Now if this thing is revealed and we see Robot Dinos then throw a tantrum. Until then this means nothing.

Microsoft doesn't confirm new IP =
"Where the hell are the new IPs?! Phil is a liar!!"

Microsoft confirms they're working on a big new IP akin to a recent highly successful game =
"So original." "Too late."

They can't win can they? It's a recruitment pitch. They want to give people an idea of the type of game they're envisioning.

You should have been the first post. :)

Reminds me of that old Reddit rumor or something that said how Phil Spencer (edit: or just Microsoft, I don't remember) was all about trying to fund sony-killer exclusives. Supposedly Ryse was supposed to be the god of war killer, sunset overdrive the infamous killer etc.

Of course, all of that should be taken with a grain of salt.

Cool can't wait for another beautiful game with awesome combat that's occasionally interrupted by tedious NPC conversations with never ending sub par voiceover work that makes me want to throw my controller in the trash.
