It feels so weird posting in the Titan section of the forum, what am I doing with my life?
Anyway Unless Blizzard is somehow making something other than Titan let's just admit already that the Unannounced Game Title in the job section is actually Titan or whatever Titan is called these days. There have been a lot of different job postings over the months, filling the positions pretty quickly I might add.
Actually on that note, they have been recruiting A LOT and posting many jobs ever since the split with Vivendi, which gives some credence to rumours that Vivendi had pretty tight grip on the company and didn't let them recruit as many people as they would have liked, no other explanation for WoW almost doubling their development team.
Back on topic, the latest one I saw appear today is pretty interesting.
Do you laugh manically as you lay waste to your opponents with the most badass weapon you can find? Is your portfolio really an armory full of swords, firearms, and other weapons of destruction? Do you have a love of the mechanical and an insatiable need to figure out how everything under the hood fits together? Is there a framed picture of the BFG on your mantle instead of pictures of your family? If so, Blizzard Entertainment, the developer of the most epic games in the world, is seeking a 3D Artist specializing in weapons to help develop Blizzard’s next hit game!
Work alongside a team of the best artists, engineers, and designers on the planet and enjoy the support of a company whose culture is centered on collaborative game development. We are gamers at heart at Blizzard – across all levels - and it shows in our craft.
The ideal candidate has experience modeling and texturing weapon, and equipment assets in a stylized universe. A solid grasp of form, color, and light for both 2D and 3D art assets is essential. The 3D weapons artist should also have experience working with a diverse range of equipment, vehicles, and mechanical characters.
What do we have here, well first of all apart from the mention of swords, which can fit into any genre anyway, the description is very heavy on guns. Looking back at other different job postings I don't remember Blizzard being so specific about what they want. Secondly, stylized universe (SHOCKING). Thirdly, experience working with a diverse range of equipment, vehicles, and mechanical characters, I feel like we are getting somewhere here Draw your own conclusions from this.
I mean in my head I am pretty convinced that the game (Titan(?)) is sci-fi at this point. The only question I have is if some of the leaks/rumours about it being not entirely a new IP are true. Warcraft 40k or Blackthorne lol?
I'm still hoping for a SC spin-off of some sort.
Come on Blizzard, you can do it!!!
With that much focus on guns, it has to be action based *please say it is so, no tab targeting*.
