Blizzard are advertising jobs that could hint at a new Diablo game being developed. Is it another expansion or could it be Diablo 4?
As reported by Diabloii Blizzard are advertising for a lighting artist, senior character artist, and senior concept artist. While this may be for an “unannounced project” the fact that Diablo is mentioned so much is a giveaway of what is in development:
“Blizzard Entertainment is seeking exceptionally skilled and passionate senior concept artists to help drive the vision of characters and worlds in our next hit game!” “We’re looking for artists that are self-starting, versatile, and enjoy being part of a collaborative environment. The ideal candidate shares our sensibilities, loves dark medieval worlds, and feels there are countless stories left to tell in the Diablo universe!”
This comes at an interesting time, as in my previous post on the new Cow Level in Diablo 3, I did mention that it was about time Diablo 4 was announced. While this may not be an announcement, it is still a hint that development may be starting.
What will start speculation is the fact that it mentions “countless stories left to tell in the Diablo universe” and of course the words “next hit game”. A game, and not an expansion? For those looking for a Diablo sequel then this sounds like good news.
We do have to point out of course that this is merely speculation at this point, but things are looking good. We’ll have to wait for some kind of announcement in the future, but we may be waiting some time.
