Blizzard has been creating new games over the years from their stable of well-known IP’s but haven’t really created something “new” for a long time. The time is now, and it is exciting to see what will come out of the company.
Blizzard has announced that a new survival game is in the works from the team. This brand-new game will be launched for PC and console and will be set in a whole new universe, which means that it will not be related to any of their current properties.
Check out the statement below:
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.
Every story needs a teller. And every world needs builders. What if that could be you?
For thirty years, Blizzard has been creating universes for millions of players around the globe. This requires a diverse team of developers willing to lend their voices, to listen and to be heard. That is our mission.
Of course, an undertaking like this will require manpower, and the company is hiring for a number of positions which you can see over at their careers page.
While there aren’t too many details yet about the upcoming project, like a release window or even which console it will appear on, Blizzard Entertainment head Mike Ybarra shares that he has “played many hours of this project with the team and I’m incredibly excited about the teams vision and the brand-new world it presents for players to immerse themselves in together.”
