Blizzard has a number of new projects on its plate. From the newly announced World of Warcraft expansion Legion, to Overwatch, to new heroes for Heroes of the Storm and new cards for Hearthstone, the game development giant is hard at work producing new content for gamers to enjoy.
Curiously missing from Blizzard's recent list of announcements, however, is word of what is next for Diablo 3. A new Diablo related job posting from Blizzard may indicate that more Diablo 3 news is on the horizon.
The listing is for an art director to work on an "unannounced project" related to the Diablo franchise. Keep in mind the listing doesn't specifically state the project is Diablo 3, but it seems safe to assume that a new Diablo project is likely a second expansion for the third entry in the franchise, rather than Diablo 4.
Blizzard came out swinging this year at Gamescom with announcements, revealing new content for nearly every game aside from Diablo. If a new expansion is in the works, an announcement may come during Blizzard's annual convention, Blizzcon. The announcement of the latest World of Warcraft expansion is usually reserved for Blizzard's show, but with Legion already announced, what's next for Diablo 3 may take center stage.
The action RPG has undergone some dramatic changes since it's release back in 2012. Initially receiving positive reviews, many gamers lost interest with the title due to the inclusion of an in-game auction house where players could spend real money for virtual items. The game's Reaper of Souls expansion swept away the auction house and brought some dramatic changes to progression and game difficulty, along with a new class and a new chapter of the game's story. The game also saw two console releases, including the release of the game's expansion on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
If a new Diablo 3 expansion is on the way, expect to hear about it during Blizzcon on Nov. 6 and 7.
