Some of the job listings for positions at Arkane Austin mention working on "our next AAA title." The listings also mention Arkane's trademark "immersive simulation and emergent gameplay," as well as calling for experience with Unreal Engine 4.
This isn't too surprising. Arkane Lyon co-developed Wolfenstein: Youngblood with MachineGames and is also working on the timed PS5 console exclusive Deathloop, while Arkane Austin's last project was the Prey: Mooncrash expansion that released in 2018.

As a result, Arkane Studios is now a part of Xbox Game Studios. The agreement for Deathloop is being honored but moving forward, new Arkane Studios titles will release day and date in Xbox Game Pass.
