Bungie layoffs morale

Bungie has been a busy studio as of late. In addition to continued updates to Destiny and the development of the recently announced extraction shooter Marathon, the studio is also developing a third game. Codenamed “Gummy Bears” this new game from Bungie is a PvP that is being developed in Unreal Engine.

According to a report from The Game Post, this new game will allegedly be built in Unreal Engine 5 for current-gen platforms. The game will be a team-based combat title with “brightly colored characters and isometric gameplay.” Project “Gummy Bears” will also be another live-service game from the studio.

“Although primarily a competitive team-based game, it has also been suggested that this title incorporates elements from real-time strategy (RTS) games into its gameplay,” the report claims.

As far as the accuracy of this report, Insider Game has yet to verify it with its independent sources. However, a quick look at Bungie’s career page shows a job listing for a “Unannounced Project” where the required skills include the ability to code in C++. C++ is the programming language used for the Unreal Engine.

Insider Gaming has reached out to Bungie on the report. This story will be updated should a response be received.
