A job posting for a senior level designer at Respawn Entertainment discloses that the company's non-Titanfall 2 project will be a third-person action/adventure title.

The posting at Gamasutra reads:

We are now recruiting designers for two game development projects – a new game in the Titanfall universe as well as a new 3rd person action/adventure IP. Respawn is seeking a Senior Level Designer to embrace and contribute to the project vision, breathing life into the gameplay world and helping define the moment to moment player experience. 

Other jobs have similarly been posted for the project, including ones for an VFX artist, senior systems designer, and software engineers.

It's been known that the company inaugurated a second team to work alongside the one that will produce the next Titanfall, but this job posting adds a little bit more detail to the project.

In a seemingly related note, back in the summer of 2014 Respawn hired God of War III director Stig Asmussen.

Our Take
It will be interesting to see if this unannounced third-person project will also be more single-player focused, which is another area Asmussen has great experience in. This would be in contrast to the multiplayer-only focus of Titanfall. Having a single-player focused property would balance out the company's roster – if the next Titanfall is multiplayer focused – and hopefully give the project longer post-release legs than the first Titanfall.
