The job advertisement states that whoever is hired will be part of a team aiming to ‘Pioneer new ways to enable adventuring until the heat death of the universe’. As the game is in its very early stages of development it is likely we wont learn more about the upcoming game for a while.
As well as creating this new IP, Respawn Entertainment is currently busy with Apex Legends. The ninth season of the game, named legacy is upcoming for console and PC. The first regional beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile will be starting later this month, as they have plans to reach ‘more regions and more players around the world’ through 2021.
