Blizzard hiring for unannounced first-person game

Blizzard job postings have been coming thick and fast recently but a new job posting hints at something completely new.

The job is a lead software engineer for an unannounced first-person title which is the first indication that a new game would be in first-person. Overwatch has the shooter genre covered so this one is a mystery. The position reads:

Blizzard Entertainment is seeking an experienced engine engineer to work on a robust first-person engine for an unannounced project. The ideal applicant has demonstrated ability to lead a team of engineers to success, has a vision for how a scalable, performant and technically excellent engine should be built, and has a passion for adopting state of the art rendering technology to implement visually stunning games.

We are pretty sure there is another Diablo project in the works but that can be┬áruled out as the this is specifically listed under the heading “unannounced” and not Diablo. Could Blizzard be looking at something more open-world like Fallout 4? Perhaps a single player Overwatch campaign? We’ll have to wait and find out.
