More details about Playdead’s next game (known as Limbo and INSIDE ) were found in a job vacancy.
A Technical Director vacancy describes the project as “an open-world, third-person science fiction adventure built for multiple platforms on Unreal Engine and published by Epic Games Publishing.”
Not much else is known about this mysterious game, but it is confirmed that it was (partially) funded and published by Epic, as announced in March 2020. Limbo was released in 2010 and INSIDE arrived in 2016. Playdead does not crunch, as stated in another job ad:
“at Playdead, we are a team of 50 creative professionals. Our development approach does not include arbitrary deadlines – instead, we look for people who like to manage their own agenda and thrive in a friendly, collaborative environment. ”
