After exploring a tropical underwater world in Subnautica and then plunging into icy waters in the sequel Below Zero, Unknown Worlds is now working on the third part of the popular survival series.

Indirect announcement through job posting

In a job posting that appeared on Twitter a few days ago, Unknown Worlds itself gave hints about the next installment of the series.
They are looking for a Senior Narrative Designer for the “next game in the Subnautica universe”!

On the page of the announcement itself there are some more hints, which allow first conclusions about the game:

Unknown Worlds is looking for a Senior Narrative Designer to join the team as they work on the next game in the Subnautica universe. This person will work closely with the team to tell compelling, dramatic stories in the context of the game experience while defining the history and lore of a new science fiction world and its alien inhabitants. This person will have a unique opportunity to join the team early in development and help set the narrative direction for a popular franchise.

So it could go to another section of 4546B – or even to a completely different planet, depending on how you want to lay it out.

Subnautica 3 is coming – but when?

This is good news for the many Subnautica fans that the popular survival title has won so far with its mix of colorful biotopes, novel gameplay and classic survival elements.

However, it will probably be some time before we really get to see something solid about Subnautica 3, because as already noted in the announcement, the title is probably still in a very early stage of development.

Enough time to revisit the original game Subnautica or the standalone spin-off Subnautica: Below Zero and refresh your knowledge about the flora, fauna and the mysterious Precursors.
