Blizzard Entertainment has revealed their plans for a “brand new survival game”, with interested developers able to apply for a variety of positions. The news post states as follows:
Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored.
Every story needs a teller. And every world needs builders. What if that could be you?
For thirty years, Blizzard has been creating universes for millions of players around the globe. This requires a diverse team of developers willing to lend their voices, to listen and to be heard. That is our mission.
Do you like survival games? Do you want to join a collaborative team of experienced developers at the early stage of a new project in a new world…and help write the next chapter in Blizzard’s story?
This is your call to adventure. Will you answer it?
The positions Blizzard is looking to fill for this survival game include:
- Environment Artist (Associate to Senior)
- Senior Character Artist
- Technical Artist (FX Pipeline)
- VFX Artist (Associate to Senior)
- Senior Character Concept Artist
- Associate Level Designer
- Level Designer
- Lead Software Engineer, Engine
- Senior Software Engineer, Audio
- Senior Software Engineer, Server
- Senior Software Engineer, Tools
Considering Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard, and Mike Ybarra’s promise to rebuild trust in the brand, we’ll have to see if this apparently new IP will take off.
