Diablo News Blizzard Seeks Software Engineer for First-person Unannounced Project

blizzard DiabloA new job posting from Blizard has appeared in their job listings for an unannounced project but not under any of the current game franchises.

We have seen plenty of job postings appear on the listing page in recent months but this one is a little different because it doesn’t come under any of the existing franchises. The two listings for Lead Software Engineer fall under the heading “Unannounced Games/Projects” on the list.

What’s interesting about the post is the job description which states:

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.

Following the success of Overwatch, you have to wonder what other first-person engine game they could be working on. Now Blizzard has nailed the FPS with Overwatch they might try something a little more adventurous, perhaps an open-world game in first person like Skyrim or Fallout 4. As the new jobs are not listed under ‘Diablo’ we’re still in the dark as to what they have in store for that. A first person Diablo world would be fantastic to experience.
