One of Ubisoft's most prominent studios is looking for a level designer for an unannounced, seemingly open-world AAA shooter title.
Specifically, Ubisoft Paris has just posted a new job listing for a lead level designer to work on an unannounced AAA project. The majority of the information surrounding the game is obfuscated still, but the former Ghost Recon: Breakpoint developer might have already hinted at the nature of this mysterious title.
Now that Ubisoft ended support for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, the publisher's Paris branch seems to have gotten reassigned to a new AAA production. According to the job listing in question, the team is looking for a level designer who has had ample experience in the production of open-world shooters, as well as a penchant for "rational" level design. Historically, Ubisoft Paris has worked on the Ghost Recon, Rayman, and Just Dance franchises, and it's really just Ghost Recon that fits the bill for this particular job listing.
Keeping that in mind, other sources claim that a new Ghost Recon game is already in development, which would suggest that Ubisoft Paris has been assigned an entirely different IP, instead. Whatever the case might be, the studio's unannounced project may well have a heavy narrative slant, according to a different job listing that reveals the team is looking for a new narrative designer. There, the pitch lists titles such as Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Watch Dogs Legion as examples of what the studio is looking for.
