A new Diablo game might be on the horizon according to a job listing

The Diablo franchise is one of gaming’s oldest success stories, dominating its specific genre of isometric monster killing. Diablo III was met with some controversy when the game launched with a rickety online system and a real-money auction house, but the game itself evolved into something beautiful and viable after its expansion. It’s the definitive dungeon-crawling loot extravaganza at this point in time, but it’s certainly past its prime. One has to wonder what is next for the illustrious franchise and according to a recent job posting, we might be getting something soon.

According to a job listing for a Dungeon Artist on Blizzard’s website, they are apparently “working on a new, unannounced Diablo project” and need someone who “works well in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo.” All signs point to a new Diablo and the chances that it’s something like an expansion are slim. We could be looking at a new entry into the franchise or alternatively, some kind of spin-off that will still feature the franchise’s signature dungeon crawling.

While Diablo III has made its appearance in the current generation, there’s still a noticeable void in anything new coming from the franchise. If Blizzard takes the lessons they’ve learned from Diablo III and puts everything into a new game, we could be dealing with a juggernaut here. However, it still seems like it will be a far way off for now.

I am way too tall, played way too many games and I love to write about what we love about games. In the end, I'm just being #Thabolicious
