Redfall developer already working on their next game


While vampire-slaying shooter Redfall just came out, its developer Arkane Studios has already shifted focus to their next game.

Redfall launched to mixed reviews on Xbox Series X|S and Microsoft Windows (via Steam) for mostly performance issues, which we noted in our review (but found the game fun overall).

The developer, who are primarily located in Austin, Texas, are hiring for over a dozen new positions ranging from artists, animators, and even full programmers and engineers.

One listing for a Build Engineer had a curious job description that read:

“Arkane Studios Austin is looking for a Build Engineer to join our team in developing our next AAA title! This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a small and focused team of developers with a proven track record of making awesome games.”

The posting goes on: “As a Build Engineer you will help empower our development team and assist in delivering another best-in-class player experience.”

Notice the bit about them developing their “next AAA title”? This was quietly removed from the job posting and now reads “in developing AAA games for PC and console systems.”

It’s worth noting Arkane Lyon – their other studio – is also hiring for nearly two dozen new positions. Their latest game, Deathloop, was received much better (we loved it, too) and has done quite well since.
