According to GameSpot, Playground Games is currently looking to nearly double its current headcount to around 200 people to work on a game, whose codenamed is "Project 2."

In a recent interview with Game Industry, founder and creative director Ralph Fulton said the company love to prove themselves in a different genre and that the company will hire some very talented people with experience for the said project.

Fulton also talked more about the Forza business, claiming that racing game remains the cornerstone of its business and will not be going away from racing. Fulton added that the company will continue to make new racing games and delivering a new gaming experience to its players.
