When Blizzard first announced Overwatch, it was the company’s first new franchise in what felt like forever. This is because for decades, Blizzard has pretty much only concentrated on three franchises – StarCraft, Warcraft, and Diablo. It now looks like we can expect a new IP from the company.

In an announcement on its website, Blizzard has revealed that they are working on a new survival game that will be making its way onto PCs and consoles. According to the company, “Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored.”

Not much is known about the game right now, but the company is looking to hire people to work on the game and develop it. Given Blizzard’s release schedules, it’s safe to say that gamers should not expect to see this game for the next few years. There is also always the chance it might end up getting cancelled.

For those unfamiliar, Overwatch was actually built on the remnants of Blizzard’s next-gen MMO which was known as Project Titan. That being said, who knows, with Microsoft announcing their intentions to acquire the company, maybe the additional resources could help speed development along.
