The Blizzard employment site has been updated with a new job listing for a "Diablo Dungeon Artist". "Our team of talented developers is growing. Our backgrounds are diverse, but we all share a real passion for what we do" the ad reads. "The ideal candidate works well in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, making great games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot!"
What will it take to be successful in this role? Well, we’re always looking for people who are game developers first and who can help us become even better than we are today, so these are probably some of your previous achievements:
- Work directly with level design to build atmospheric dungeons with a focus on composition, detail and mood, while ensuring that the gameplay space is readable.
- Author environmental assets for a modern pipeline including modeling, and texturing assets for the Diablo World
- Work with Lead Environment Artist and the Art Director to ensure all environments are meeting the high-quality bar Blizzard is known for.
We have been speculating around our virtual staff lounge that a Diablo MMO may be in the works but, if not, then Diablo 4. It is highly unlikely that an expansion for Diablo 3 is being developed as the game has largely run its course.
What do you think? Mobile? MMO? New ARPG? Survival? Let us know!
