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 ruled 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.
