Blizzard’s Diablo related job postings are coming thick and fast these days and there’s a new position up for “Senior Game Design”.
The minions of hell grow stronger! Our family of diabolically talented developers is expanding. Our backgrounds are varied but we all share a passion for the dark, gothic, and macabre. If you value a tightknit team that celebrates self-expression and a multi-disciplinary approach, then join us on the Diablo team.
We’re currently looking for a talented and experienced game designer with a background in content / narrative design. The ideal candidate is able to seamlessly integrate storytelling and gameplay to create memorable characters, moments and locales in addition to conveying a greater narrative vision.
It’s safe to say there something Diablo is cooking at Blizzard, it’s just a shame we have no idea what it is or when we’ll hear about it. The Diablo announcements at BlizzCon last weekend were not exactly stellar and can be viewed as a stopgap to keep the community engaged with the franchise before a new game is revealed.
This new position is looking for someone with content / narrative design experience so let’s hope they find someone who can do a better job than they did with Diablo 3.
