Blizzard working on new Diablo game reveals job ad

Blizzard working on new Diablo game reveals job ad

Previous Blizzard job ads have also hinted that a new Diablo is on the way, but this is by far the most blatant.

Blizzard is looking for a skilled Dungeon Artist for a "growing" team of developers, and there are several references to the "dark gothic" world of Diablo, but not many clues about anything else.

However, it's pretty clear that said "unannounced project" is a Diablo title, as Blizzard outright confirms as much.

Blizzard has not announced any new Diablo games to date, although this isn't the first job opening to suggest one might be in the works.

A job listing for Blizzard makes it plain the company is working on a new Diablo "project", but is it Diablo 4?

Some of the duties of the dungeon artist role include building atmospheric dungeons (emphasis on the plural) from the ground up and world building. If they're not taunting you with their "promise" of barely minimum wage with a requirement of half-a-billion years experience in your chosen field, they're teasing new games. However, fans of the revered dungeon-crawler are hoping that it will turn out to be Diablo IV.

This, of course, doesn't address the rumors of Diablo III on the Nintendo Switch, but perhaps it doesn't really matter if the game will come to the Switch or not.

Considering Blizzard is hiring for such essential roles in the creative team of an unannounced Diablo project, it's nearly guaranteed that the sequel to 2012's Diablo 3 is officially in production.
