Still coming down off of the excitement surrounding the slew of Blizzard announcements made at Gamescom? Good, because it looks like they’re just getting started. Blizzard posted a job this morning calling for an art director to work on an upcoming unannounced title. This is quite typical for Blizzard, with the job description citing quality attributes such as demonstrating “proficiency with popular 2D and 3D applications, such as Maya, 3DS Max, Adobe Photoshop, Painter, etc.” and possessing “solid knowledge of current and next-gen art techniques as well as fundamental art principles.” The kicker, however, is in the following section of the job description, where Blizzard lists one extra quality that would be a “plus” for any potential employee:
What?! That definitely says Diablo. It appears that Blizzard is working on a new Diablo project. Whether this new project is a new game (Diablo 4 omg!) or a new expansion is completely up to question. Either way, the Road to Blizzcon–where I imagine they’d be announcing this new Diablo project– just got a lot more interesting, especially when you take into account that Blizzard has already gotten the new World of Warcraft expansion announcements out of the way.
Are you pumped about the prospect of a new Diablo game? Or would you rather just see another expansion for Diablo III? Dungeon crawl into the comments with your thoughts down below.
