Tekken 8 is currently the talk of the town for Bandai Namco, but its latest job listing has suggested that the video game developer may also be developing another game.
Bandai Namco Europe recently posted a job opening for an internship as a Producer Assistant on the Little Nightmares IP on LinkedIn.
For those who aren't familiar with the franchise, Little Nightmares is a series of puzzle-platform horror adventure games developed by Tarsier Studios and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
The job opening specifies that the ideal candidate for the Producer Assistant internship on the Little Nightmares IP should "provide qualitive support to the Little Nightmares Production team by reviewing the game on multiple platforms, make comparative playthroughs, liaise with QA, etc." Although this information does not confirm the development of a third installment in the Little Nightmares game series, it does suggest the possibility of a sequel in the works.
Little Nightmares, the first game in the series, was launched in 2017 and received praise from both critics and gamers. In 2021, the prequel sequel, Little Nightmares II, was released, and within a month of its launch, the game had sold one million units worldwide.
Although Tarsier Studios developed the previous two games in the franchise, they announced that they would no longer be involved in the development of any future Little Nightmares games after their acquisition by Embracer Group in 2019. As a result, it's highly probable that Bandai Namco or another studio will take the reigns for the next installment in the series.
Hopefully, we will get an official confirmation of the much-awaited threequel, with presumably another secret ending, soon.
