While the fourth season of Diablo 4 is in preparation and World of Warcraft is about to dive into its next expansion, The War WithinBlizzard is already thinking about its next game.

The birth of a new franchise?

A new job offer on the specialized site Hitmarker could well be a hint of a new PvE type game in the works at Blizzard. The development studio is reportedly looking for a creative director for an “unannounced game.”

Here’s what the ad says:

“At Blizzard, we create genre-defining games and legendary worlds to share. With unparalleled creativity and storytelling, we create immersive worlds and iconic characters that are loved across platforms, borders, origins and generations — which is only possible by building a work environment that nurtures the art of game development and unleashes the aspirations of our collaborators.

We are looking for a Creative Director to help develop and advance the creative vision for our unannounced game. The ideal candidate has a passion for design and is able to effectively communicate the game’s objectives through high-quality visual content. He is continually learning, understands the importance of process, pays attention to detail and is eager to play a crucial role on our team.

The Creative Director will oversee narrative and visual design, guiding the creation of the story and world for the unannounced project. Qualified candidates will have demonstrated experience building and guiding creative leadership teams from initial concept to release.

In addition to the position of creative director, other important positions have been proposed, such as that of narrative director, art director, concept artist, gameplay engineer, animator, combat designer, as well as several design directors in the context of quest design and combat AI.

Players in demand for a PvE game

The announcement does not say whether it is a new intellectual property or an old one – Blizzard had not hidden its desire to continue the saga starcraft, For example. It is also worth noting that job postings related to combat AI suggest that the title will include PvE features. In any case, that’s what the vast majority of fans seem to be hoping for.

While this is not new intellectual property, it is possible that a game Overwatch specially designed for PvE combat is born after the dismal failure of the launch ofOverwatch 2 and the abandonment of its long-awaited PvE mode.

In January, Blizzard also canceled developing a survival game following massive layoffs at Microsoft. The game, codenamed Odyssey, was supposed to be the company’s first original intellectual property since 2016’s Overwatch.
