The job listing mentions a brand new AAA open-world IP. Sumo Digital is now working on a game that is much bigger in scope than their previous projects with an engaging world map in particular.

Furthermore, the job posting reveals another key aspect of the upcoming game. The new title will have a unique focus on expressive traversal. Given Sumo Digital’s history with platformers like Sackboy and Crackdown 3traversal mechanics in the game world, this seems like a natural fit for the team. 

The upcoming game is also likely to feature multiplayer mode too while being based on Unreal Engine. This is evident in two of the requirements stated in another job listing for a Lead Level Designer-Open World Action

Sumo Digital’s upcoming project certainly sounds interesting. A focus on traversal with a unique level design could make for a very engaging gameplay loop. Fans of innovative traversal mechanics are usually limited to a small selection of games, and many are likely to appreciate a new addition to a relative niche genre of games.

Moreover, the multiplayer aspect sounds just as intriguing. Sumo Digital seems to branch out to different types of games, and this AAA open-world project is just one such example.

The game is unlikely to announce anytime soon, however, it has huge amounts of potential. With enough care and polish, the game could prove to be worth the wait.
