Blizzard is Hiring for an Unannounced Game - News

Blizzard Entertainment is currently hiring for an unannounced game.

There are dozens of job openings for the unannounced game, including multiple director roles - Design Director, Narrative Director, Creative Director, and Senior Art Director.

The role of the Design Director is to guide their "team in the delivery of high-quality iconic locations that weave excellent storytelling with satisfying gameplay."

Blizzard's president Mike Ybarra and its chief design officer Allen Adham left the studio earlier this year and Blizzard's survival game was cancelled at the same time. The former Call of Duty general manager, Johanna Faries, was appointed as the new president of the company.

World of Warcraft executive producer and vice president Holly Longdale recently stated since Microsoft has acquired Blizzard it has "let Blizzard be Blizzard."

Microsoft Gaming and NetEase recently signed a new agreement to bring Blizzard games back to mainland China starting in the Summer of 2024. The list of Blizzard games that will be available in China include the games Chinese players had access to under the previous agreement - World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Diablo, and StarCraft, and more.

Microsoft completed its Activision Blizzard acquisition in October 2023.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012 and taking over the hardware estimates in 2017. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel. You can contact the author on Twitter @TrunksWD.

Interesting. Seems like it might be an established IP.

I wish they would revive Starcraft Ghost :) And make it as good as Splinter Cell but in the Starcraft universe!

Well their survival game got killed so got to make something else I guess or whatever stage this game was in then the other one.

If it's live service then eh pass while I assume it might be. Their survival game would have been. Their main push is them. If it's something else I'd be surprised but even still I am hopeful even as not really into Blizzard games but anything unannounced can still be exciting to hear about.

We won't hear about a Starcraft Ghost but that would be nice if it ever happened again. Or maybe any Starcraft revival.

Would they make a successor to any of the 16bit games they made into a collection? Make a new one? Hmm. Maybe?

If not that maybe another Warcraft? Well the last one didn't go well did it? I can't remember.

Whatever other Blizzard IPs they want to do something with maybe. Hmm.

Will it be singleplayer is so I'm interested. Whatever assets and reworkings hmm.

Hopefully either Starcraft or the revival of Overwatch singleplayer as a standalone game.

Agreed with the former but alas, I think the Overwatch single player is dead. If they couldn't do it in the time they had, team they had when they could, not sure a new team to try again is worth it when a new IP or Starcraft would be a better more worthwhile endeavour.
