Blizzard may be working on a new game, but whether it’s an existing property or not is still unknown.
A recent job posting suggests that the Overwatch developer is working on an unannounced project in a “robust first-person engine.” Blizzard is searching for a gameplay engineer to help the team create vehicles and “build vehicle handling features,” according to the listing. Aside from the mention of first-person gameplay, there’s no real hint as to what the game may be.
Overwatch is Blizzard’s only first-person game at this time, though this job listing is hardly a confirmation of a new Overwatch game or expansion. An October job posting suggested that a new Overwatch venture is in the works, as Blizzard was interesting in finding an intern with knowledge of Overwatch’s lore for an “unannounced project.” But like the new listing, it’s not a confirmation of a new Overwatch game.
“The ideal candidate has proven experience in vehicle handling, with exposure to other game systems like physics, animation, and cameras,” Blizzard says in the posting. “They must have outstanding people skills and a longstanding passion for playing games across multiple genres and platforms.”
Whatever the project may be, it won’t be revealed for quite some time. One thing is for certain, though—there’s going to be vehicles, you guys.
