Mutan Insight, a Japan-based studio specializing in character and background models for other games, is hiring new employees to work on an unannounced “high-end RPG” remake for the PS5. The studio’s previous work includes the Episode Ardyn DLC for Final Fantasy XV, as well as Blue Reflection TIE and the Atelier series. While details are still scarce, the job listings feature positions for 3D motion designers, background designers, and more.
Notably, the job posting states that the game in question will use Unreal Engine 5. It also states that applicants will work on cutscenes with high-end real-time graphics. Additionally, required skills include past experience with creating cutscenes, as well as with motion capture.
All that being said, there’s no confirmation on whether Mutan Insight will entirely develop the unannounced title by itself. Previously, the studio has also worked in a supporting capacity with companies like Square Enix — as was the case with the FFXV DLC — which may be the case with this unannounced remake.
That being said, there are several possibilities. One is the Chrono Cross remake that has been going around the rumor mill, ever since it appeared in the GeForce Now leak earlier this year. However, it’s worth noting that later reports have stated that the remake will be a multiplatform release.
Another possibility is the sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake. This fits the bill as both a high-end RPG as well as a remake for the PS5. It also makes sense as Mutan Insight has worked on a Final Fantasy title for the PS5 before, and therefore already has a working relationship with Square Enix.
