A job listing at the Polish developer confirms that it is now working on an unannounced third-person game for current-generation consoles and PC.

The details:

  • As reported by Tech4Gamers, the studio behind 2022's Evil West is looking for new employees to fill a variety of positions, with the position of "VFX Artist" including some information about its upcoming project. According to the listing, the successful applicant will work on a "fast-paced" third-person action title built with Unreal Engine 5, which will be the developer's first game using the newer engine and will make use of the Niagara VFX system.
  • Flying Wild Hog is best known for its titles with fast combat-oriented gameplay, such as the Shadow Warrior reboot. The studio translated the gameplay style into a third-person perspective with a focus on melee combat for Evil West, which was ultimately well received despite some technical issues plaguing its release, so it appears that the developer is sticking to what it knows best for its next title. Due to the similar-sounding gameplay, some speculate that it could also be a sequel to Evil West, given its generally positive reception.
  • Outside of the information revealed in the job listing, not much is known about the project; however, it's more than likely a few years away, at least due to Evil West only releasing in November 2022, assuming that development wasn't in full swing until its launch period had concluded. Similar to Evil West, we'll likely learn more about the project in the future with a formal announcement at a major event such as the Game Awards.
