Blizzard hiring for ‘unannounced’ project

“Blizzard Entertainment, the developer of the most epic games in the world, is seeking an exceptionally skilled and passionate art director to help develop Blizzard’s next hit game!”

With a starting line like that, it has to make you wonder what Blizzard has in mind. That is, until you read a little further down in the “pluses” section:

“A passion for games with a deep understanding of the Diablo franchise”

Could Blizzard be making another expansion pack for Diablo 3? Or maybe a new game set further into the future, as the end of Reaper of Souls kind of left the future a bit ambiguous

Maybe the new game is set in the future when there are two sides of Nephalim fighting for control over a futuristic Sanctuary?

Before you get too excited and start scrambling to find your resume that’s most likely buried in some obscure folder, their requirements are pretty strict to say the least.

  • A minimum of 10 years’ experience in crafting video game art
  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience as a lead artist or art director
  • Incredible communications and interpersonal skills
  • Able to manage a large art staff of varying skills and specialties
  • Strong illustration and / or concept art skills
  • Demonstrated proficiency with popular 2D and 3D applications, such as Maya, 3DS Max, Adobe Photoshop, Painter, etc.
  • Solid knowledge of current and next-gen art techniques as well as fundamental art principles
  • Able to motivate artists and collaborate well with other developers in a team environment

So if you think you have what it takes to be the next art director for this unannounced project, head over to Blizzard’s site and give it a go!
