Blizzard is recruiting for an entirely new ‘Overwatch’ project


Alas, this is far from confirmation of a new Overwatch game, sequel, or mobile spinoff for that matter. But, it ties into prior job postings that also suggest something big is in the works. Last year, a beady-eyed NeoGAF user pointed out listings for lead software engineers for a “first-person” title. And, in August, Blizzard Entertainment CEO Mike Morhaime said the company had incubation teams working on new projects, “especially on mobile.” Of course, Blizzard brought its popular card game Hearthstone to Android and iOS in 2015. It also just introduced a smartphone app for its Battle.net platform.

There’s always the chance that the vacancies could signal an altogether new game. Either way, it’s best to temper your excitement for now, as there’s bound to be a bit of a wait for whatever’s in the pipeline.
