Blizzard Job Posting Hints at Diablo II and Warcraft III Remasters
A recently posted job advert for a Lead Software Engineer on the Blizzard Entertainment website hints at a potential remaster of Diablo II and Warcraft III. The World of Warcraft developer is looking for an engineer with at least 5+ years of experience on an AAA title and fluency in C++ to work on an “Unannounced Project” in Irvine, Southern California.
Given Blizzard’s 2016 announcement that they plan to remake 1998 RTS hit Starcraft, this “Unannounced Project” has excited fans. Fan site BlizzPlanet reported today on an earlier version of the job advertisement, that mentioned Diablo II and Warcraft III by name. That version has since been taken down, but read as follows:
The wording above is pretty unmistakable -- and when this version of the job posting disappeared within a few hours, it's pretty clear that all signs are pointing to more remasters being on the way. (And we totally called that Diablo II remaster months ago.)
If you're interested in this posting or think you have the skills to apply for the position, you can find the original hiring call on Blizzard's official website.
Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more information on these possible remasters as they are (hopefully) confirmed in the future!
