Blizzard has been on a hiring spree since as early as last summer for an unannounced first-person shooter project.
Several job listings popped up back in June for the unannounced shooter, in development at Blizzard’s HQ in Irvine.
Blizzard has obviously not talked publicly about this project, but a new job ad was recently spotted by ResetEra. The ad is for a software engineer who will specifically be working on vehicle gameplay.
The candidate would help create vehicles, set handling features and so on, and Blizzard wants someone with experience in the field. The job ad mentions the unannounced first-person project several times, but that’s kind of about it.
Still, it’s very exciting news for Blizzard fans as the project seems big. A first-person shooter with vehicles made by Blizzard could shake up the sub-genre dominated by Battlefield and Halo for years.
That said, it sounds like it’s a ways out, and given how Blizzard typically takes its time working on games, it may be a while yet before we find out what it is.
