Creative Assembly

Creative Assembly, the studio best known for Total War, is staffing up as work begins on a new console-based IP.

The revelation comes via a series of job listings on the developer’s website, seeking high-level staff to join the studio’s dedicated console team. Each of the listings mention the project as a “new undisclosed IP,” with two citing its grand ambitions as “genre-defining.” Besides the buzzwords, few details can be gleaned from the listings, and the team’s history provides few indications.

Creative Assembly’s previous console efforts have ranged from the action-oriented Viking: Battle for Asgard, the horror-focused Alien: Isolation, and the RTS Halo Wars 2, giving the team a wide base of experience to draw upon. Despite the lack of available information, a studio insider reportedly told PCGamesN that the new title is “the biggest multiformat project Creative Assembly has ever undertaken.”

The new tease adds another title to the already expansive list of games in the works at the studio, with work currently ongoing on the free-to-play efforts of Total War: Arena and Total War Battles: Kingdom, as well as A Total War Saga: Thrones of Brittania, and, reportedly, a new project in the mainline historical series and a finale to the Warhammer sub-series.
