This is according to a recently-discovered job listing in which Blizzard is hiring for a new Lead Content Designer. According to the job description, it calls on someone to “Champion a clear vision for mechanically and narratively interesting missions within an established Blizzard IP.”
So what IP is Blizzard referring to? Given that World of Warcraft is still ongoing, we’re not sure if Warcraft 4 is the right direction as it could result in conflicting storylines. We also know that Diablo 4 is being developed so that can’t be it either, and Blizzard’s latest franchise Overwatch has a sequel that’s also in the works, which leaves us with StarCraft.
It has been years since StarCraft 2 was released and it was in 2020 that Blizzard announced that any further development on the title like patches and new content has ceased. This has led some, including us, to believe that maybe a new StarCraft game could be in the works. However, what’s interesting is that the description suggests that it might be some kind of RPG.
We know that decades ago Blizzard was developing a StarCraft stealth game called StarCraft: Ghost, but it was ultimately cancelled. In any case, given how long Blizzard takes to develop its games, it could be a while before we find out. In the meantime, the company has also announced that they are working on a new survival game.
