While we don't know much about this upcoming RPG, we do know that the studio is ramping up production by hiring more people. According to a recent report by PCGamesN, Playground Games hired developers from Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V), the Metal Gear Solid series, and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. The studio has only worked on the excellent Forza Horizon franchise in the past so this is their first venture in another genre. However, they have experience crafting open world games due to the Forza Horizon series.
The latest addition to Playground Games is Sean Eyestone. Eyestone recently worked on Star Wars Battlefront II but he spent a decade at Kojima Productions where one of his projects was Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Other notable hires include Will Kennedy, who worked on GTA V, and Juan Fernandez di Simon, who was at Ninja Theory when they made Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
Aside from these prominent individuals, Playground Games is growing from 200 developers to over 400 developers. This is in response to their new RPG. It's unclear when we'll hear more about it but the game is supposed to be a multiplatform project so expect it on a lot systems aside from Xbox One. Hopefully we'll have a proper reveal at E3 2018.
