It really doesn’t mean much by itself, but yay anyway

Blizzard has been entertaining myself and others for decades.  My first Blizzard game was before Blizzard was even Blizzard.  It was a puzzle type platformer with multiple characters called The Lost Vikings.  Published by Interplay and developed by Silicon & Synapse, it was a game that began the tradition of their game costing me a lot of hours.

The main franchise to do this for me was Diablo.  The first was fun, but Diablo II was the first game that I carried a save across three new computers – I just kept coming back for one more run.  And one more area.  Maybe this boss, then I will call it a night.

Diablo III is a disc sitting next to my PS4 that I will go back and ‘finish’.  Trophy wise I only need to do the grinding run stuff, then I will platinum it.  And it will be done before the next Diablo.  Because it’s Blizzard – the next Diablo could still be 10 years away.

But that hasn’t stopped a couple of job opening from appearing on Blizzard’s job pages.

Diablo Job Postings
It's official(ish)

By themselves, the job postings mean nothing.  Blizzard is not afraid to start and scrap a game because they don’t like where it is heading, as people that waited for Diablo III and Starcraft: Ghost can attest to.

But they are working on it.  There will be another Diablo story in some form.  And this makes me happy 🙂

Diablo Job Posting Dungeon Artist
Diablo Job Posting Environment Artist

The fact that I thought a Dungeon was part of the Environment so both could be done by the same person is probably a good reason for me not to apply 😀 But what about you?  Are you someone that can help shape Diablo in the future?

Until next time,

Oh, and because E3 is starting soon and every time I think of cancelled Blizzard games I think of Starcraft: Ghost, here is the 2003(!) E3 trailer.  Enjoy!
