Unannounced Diablo project looking for a game director and more

Blizzard's job pages are always fun to peruse.

To say that the Diablo franchise is important to Blizzard is a severe understatement, so it should come as no surprise that the company is moving forward with the series in some way, shape or form following the huge success of Diablo 3 and it expansion, Reaper of Souls. Whether it will be a new expansion or Diablo 4, however, remains to be seen.

In a new posting found on the Blizzard job's page, the company is looking for a game director the lead the franchise. The previous game director for the franchise was Jay Wilson, who announced early last month that he was leaving the company to pursue his love of writing. Wilson had stepped aside from the series in 2013 to do other work within the company, and Joshua Mosqueira took over the franchise for Reaper of Souls and the subsequent patches. It is not clear if Mosquiera is moving on to a new project or how the transition would be handled.

Game director is not the only position Blizzard is hiring for to staff the unannounced project. In addition to the art director position they advertised for late last year, they are currently looking for a senior animator,  senior charcter and concept artists, and a senior VFX artist to satff their main office in Irvine, CA.

      Hopefully it is Diablo VR! Mythos Of The World Axis proved how amazing it could be in VR. Spells and smoke effects look amazing in VR

      I used to be hyped for a second expansion but not really anymore, I feel like the power creep and absurdly powerful legendaries make it so that you really can't build on it anymore. I'd like to see a Diablo 4 designed with a little more restraint in the mudflation and crazy powers. Go back to the drawing board and try something different with the gameplay.

      The mysterious stranger approaced the village. He claimed to have first hand knowledge of the demon and promised to guide them in the right direction, if only they would put him at the helm. He wore a funny pair of glasses with a fake moustache, and said his name was Way Jilson. The villagers weren't quite sure what it was, but something appeared to be wrong, very wrong.
