    Grab the Codex by the pussy Serpent in the Staglands Dead State Divinity: Original Sin Project: Eternity Torment: Tides of Numenera Wasteland 2 Shadorwun: Hong Kong Divinity: Original Sin 2 A Beautifully Desolate Campaign Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Spotted by Safav Hamon - Fool's Theory (developers of underrated Seven: The Days Long Gone) hiring people to work on Divinity Engine 2 game: https://www.skillshot.pl/jobs/13031-gameplay-designer-divinity-engine-2-at-fools-theor

    Fool's Theory co-developed the D:OS 2 free Gift Bag DLC released last month: https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.p...finitive-edition.118260/page-214#post-6041714

    Are they hiring people to work on more of those, or is this something more? As spotted by LESS T_T in that thread, they're also hiring to work on Unreal Engine 4 game.

    Larian are now working with three different indie studios. Possible future acquisitions of the expanding Larian empire?

    It's not unusual for indie studios to support for other games but Larian was at least nice enough to officially credit them for their work.
    Fools Theory and Anshar Studios last games used the Unreal Engine 4 so it makes sense for them to look for people that are familiar with that engine.

    Possible indication:



    Looks like usual in-game cutscene that is detached from normal gameplay.

    Interview with David Walgrave, with his answers read out by the interviewer:



    Cryptic answer about Project Gustav:

    "Actually we are working on a couple of different scenes, trying stuff out. I don't seem that was a secret. We're also still supporting Divinity: Original Sin 2 and figuring out our next steps with it. So Gustav is many scenes altogether, maybe not limited to an RPG."

    I guess the interview was conducted before the announcement of Fallen Heroes?

    Now Swen is actually visiting China:



    Some kind of video game convention named GFusion: https://www.gcores.com/fusion2019

    Apparently Larian is showcasing Fallen Heroes there.

    And now Anshar posted a Divinity Engine specific job: https://www.skillshot.pl/jobs/13252-game-designer-scripter-at-anshar-studios

    They're certainly making a new content at least.
