Ubisoft Paris Working on Unannounced AAA Open-World Game

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.

A recent job posting has listed a vacancy for a Senior Game Designer for Ubisoft Paris, the same studio behind Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The post details that the selected candidate will be joining a team that's already working on one of its "unannounced first-person shooter AAA projects." While Ubisoft hasn't shared specific details about the project itself, the listing suggests that the company may be working on multiple AAA first-person shooter games. As the project appears to be still in its early stages, it's unlikely that fans will hear more concrete details about what to expect any time soon.

In a similar job posting, the Ubisoft Paris studio opened up a vacancy for a level designer early this month for an unannounced AAA Ubisoft title. While it's unclear if this refers to the unannounced AAA first-person shooters in the works, evidence points that at least one of these will be an open-world game. The post mentioned that the team was looking for a level designer experienced in open-world shooter game production. Now with the recent job posting, the rumor of a new Ghost Recon title in development is starting to look more likely.

Let me guess now that team ninja released 2 nioh games and Sony released ghosts of Tsushima it's time for ubisoft to get really late to the party as usual and release to their feudal Japan game

Assasins creed: Ronin

187 hours to complete. 357 towers to climb 582 bandit camps to clean and 4673 sacred kimonos to collect.
Also with good ol PC unoptimization that will or will not be fixed one year down the line, pegging that CPU0 to death like a prime 95 run.

to be honest im not really interested with ubisoft open world game anymore. it feels too formulaic like their other game particularly assasins creed.

hopefully they bring out something 'different' than what they usually did

I'm always amazed with the Ubisoft bashing.

Horizon, Tsushima or Spiderman use the exact same formula, with even worse story development, combat system or exploration but these games are all GOTY material...right.

Oh yeah...they are PS exclusives...

I really enjoyed Mario + Rabbits but thats the ONLY game I enjoyed from Ubisoft.
Well, Driver SF, which i honestly consider to be one of the best racing games of all time, was made by them. So their current state really saddens me.
