Six years ago, Blizzard released probably its most awaited game, Diablo III. If you thought this was the last of the game series you were about to see, you might have been wrong. Blizzard has just posted a job listing for a dungeon artist, showing that a new Diablo game is in the making.
A Blizzard job listing is hinting at a new Diablo game
Blizzard has big plans for the future, as it has no intention to leave the Diablo franchise to die. Therefore, it decided to announce the incoming of a new Diablo game through a list of jobs on their website. Given the name of the game, there are going to be plenty of demons you need to fight. For this, Blizzard needs a dungeon artist to design them and the entire gloomy environment of the game.
The new Diablo game hasn’t been officially announced, but the job offer hints directly at it. Apart from a dungeon artist, Blizzard is also looking for people who are good at handling 2D and 3D graphics and work well with textures and imagery. However, there’s something they all need to have in common. The main requirement is for them to love the Diablo universe, so there’s nothing that confirms it better.
The announcement comes one year after the last Diablo release
It might be time for a new Diablo game to return. The last content update in the franchise took place in June 2017, one year after the release of the game. Unlike the first two titles, Diablo III was available for purchase for a longer period of time. This happened mostly because it received all kinds of updates, DLCs, and events.
The first Diablo title was out in 1996, and the second in 2000. In over 20 years of existence, the franchise has become a classic. With the third game in the series, Blizzard kept the fans waiting for 11 years, while it turned into a real legend. Some might say they have waited enough, and a new Diablo game would be the perfect reward for them. The studio might keep us waiting just as long, but it will definitely be worth the wait.
