Blizzard Is Currently Hiring For A New Diablo

DiabloDiabloIf a new job listing is anything to go by, it looks like Blizzard is planning to make a new Diablo game.

The studio’s hiring page shows off a listing for game director on the as yet unannounced project – so I guess unless this is an elaborate prank, we can count on a new entry in the franchise.



The listing reads:

Blizzard Entertainment is seeking a game director with outstanding communications skills, proven experience in creative direction, strong ability in system design, and a stellar track record of shipping AAA games to lead the Diablo series into the future.

Previous director Jay Wilson retired from the video game industry a few years after helming Diablo 3. Presumably he won’t be back.


Diablo 3’s was infamously riddled with problems upon release, so I would assume they’re in the market for a no-nonsense director that won’t stand for a dodgy launch.

Still, by the time Diablo 3 arrived on consoles, it had managed to sort itself out and become a pretty solid, enjoyable affair. My hope is that this new incarnation (whatever it is) will arrive as a fully formed experience on day one.

I might hand my CV in. I worked at CeX for a year, so I think they’ll appreciate the experience.
