Diablo is probably the most iconic franchises when it comes to dungeon crawler action RPGs. With millions of fans all around the globe, it feels only natural that Blizzard would want another installment to the franchise. A new job listing for a dungeon artist in Blizzard indicates that the company might be already working on developing Diablo 4 or possibly another related title to the series.
As the job listing indicates, Blizzard is looking for a skilled dungeon artist to create “something exceptional”. Diablo has always been a dark and immersive franchise that is purely based on flawless dungeon designs so this job is probably the most important for the developing team. Diablo 4 has been most anticipated since its predecessor is released for six years now. It’s time for some new action, isn’t it?
The dungeon artist job listing for – possibly – Diablo 4 reads:
Modeling and texturing compelling assets. Essential skills include a solid grasp of form, color, and light for both 2D and 3D art assets. You can concept, model, and texture your work! You are also up on the latest tools and technology. The ideal candidate works well in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, making great games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot!
What’s interesting is that Blizzard is open to working with applicants that don’t have experience in AAA title, as the listing doesn’t state such a requirement. If you are passionate about dungeon crawlers and have related programming and artistic skills then you should consider applying.
A few months back, similar Diablo 4 related job listings have been made public. Blizzard Entertainment has been looking for an associate producer who will manage the project, a creative director for the project who will “steer strategic creative decisions at a franchise level”. If it all adds up then Diablo 4, or whatever this new Diablo project is about, might already be in the works.
This comes to much more sense if you consider that Goldman Sachs has raised its rating for the shares of Activision Blizzard to account for Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 releasing in the next couple of years.
