New Unannounced Diablo Game Revealed to be in Development by Job Listing

Not enough mana.

It's been six years since Diablo 3 released. The classic hack-and-slash series has been widely adored for over two decades, since the first game was released way back in 1997. The gap between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3 was a wide one—12 years—but after a new job listing has appeared on Blizzard's site, it's looking like we may not have to wait quite as long for Diablo 4, or whatever else comes next.

"We're working on a new, unannounced Diablo project," the job listing reads. The job is for a Dungeon Artist specifically, so don't count on this new "Diablo project" being another Hearthstone-like or some other sort of spin-off. "The ideal candidate works well in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, making great games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot," the job listing iterates.

Last year marked the Diablo series' 20th anniversary. In honor of it, Blizzard introduced a free limited time event in January 2017 that recreated the original game and its 16-level dungeon. Last year too, Diablo 3 got its second big expansion in Rise of the Necromancer. Who knows what sort of shape Diablo 4 may take, but if they're hiring for it now, it's possible that Blizzard might reveal it sooner than we might have expected.
