Once again, Blizzard has managed to set internet forums aflame with rumors circulating that the World of Warcraft/Starcraft/Diablo developer is currently working on an unannounced fifth game, based around an entirely new intellectual property. Lost Vikings? or better yet, Rock and Roll Racing! (Sorry, Blackthorne.)
The source of the buzz seems to be two new job postings that have appeared on Blizzard’s job site over the past week under the category of unannounced. The two listings are seeking experienced client and gameplay engineers “to focus on graphics and other client systems for an unannounced title.” Since StarCraft II, Diablo III, and World of Warcraft all have their own job headings, along with “Next-Gen MMO”, the listings would seem to indicate that their is another Blizzard project in the works.
The only concrete proof anyone seems to be offering that this is indeed a new Blizzard game is a post on the IncGamers website.
