AI tech has also started seeping into the gaming industry, with some studios already beginning to embrace and use it in controversial ways. Bungie has recently started hiring employees with expertise in generative AI tech to use in its projects. As initially spotted by The Game Post, the job listing dubbed “Generative AI Lead Tools Engineer” seeks the hiree to partner with other devs and utilize the GenAI models in its projects.
Do you believe Generative AI (GenAI) is changing the landscape of what’s possible? Do you delight in combining models and making the perfect prompt?” mentions the job listing.
The employee at Bungie will be expected to work with “people and workflows that span all of the game development” and create software that can interact with the GenAI models. Additionally, the listing talks about producing powerful AI tools that can help alleviate the intense pressure off devs across different facets of developing a title.
You will partner with area experts and drive the development of software that allows our tools and systems to interact with GenAI models. In this role you will collaborate with teams across all of Bungie, empowering the studio’s developers and reducing toil by giving them access to powerful AI tools.”
Note: The current job listing has also been taken down from the official website because Bungie is no longer accepting applications; it could mean that someone is already hired, as per LinkedIn.

This is not the first time Bungie has published a job advert that wants to bring AI into its projects. The studio hired multiple devs last year to work on its machine learning tech, and Ryan Valenza joined Bungie as the Director of Machine Learning. Moreover, other ads on the site are hiring for different roles related to AI for its upcoming FPS entry, Marathon.
The listing for MARATHON LEAD GAMEPLAY ENGINEER – AI wants to drive AI tech “that brings Marathon’s simulated combatants to life.” Lastly, the Destiny AI Designer advert requires the hire to focus on creating the scripts that will handle the behavior structure for the NPCs. The employee will be responsible for “working with a team of AI designers to convert initial concepts into final designs.”
The studio claims that using GenAI will take the burden off the devs and does not admit that it will be replacing devs at a future point utilizing it. While that has removed some of the worries regarding the listing, many gamers are still worried about what it may entail in the future.
Bungie will likely make use of the GenAI tech in tandem with the expertise of its teams to make game development easier. We could also see the studio use GenAI in Destiny 2 to design different updates. All in all, it is best to take the growing rumors with a grain of salt.
