Blizzard Has At Least One More Unannounced Game in Development, According to Insider

According to an insider, it seems Blizzard has another unannounced game in development other than the recently announced survival game.

There are some video game companies that put out games every 2-3 years, keeping their names on the map at all times. Other companies do so by releasing huge games only every several years, with big names like Rockstar Games and Bethesda being the ones most may think of. Blizzard falls into this latter category as well, especially given how Diablo 4 is still in development after Diablo 3 released all the way back in 2012.

So, for many, it came as a huge shock when Blizzard announced a new survival game for PC and consoles a few days ago. Nothing much was said about the title, just its genre, that Blizzard was hiring, and some highly conceptual art alongside it. However, according to one insider, this isn’t the extent of Blizzard’s games in development.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Windows Central’s Jez Corden, who has first reported on several Xbox projects in the past like Obsidian Entertainment/Josh Sawyer’s Pentiment, says that the new survival game surprised him. Not because it was an out-of-nowhere, thin announcement, but because he was expecting Blizzard to reveal another game he knows about—citing his sources at Blizzard. Corden reveals he didn’t know about Blizzard survival game, but he does know about this one—all of which was said during a recent Xbox Two podcast around the 2:19-2:20 mark below.


He couldn’t speak much to it, in fear of getting anyone at Blizzard in trouble. At the same time, apparently, Blizzard’s roadmap is very strong, and it’ll be interesting to see what comes out the company alongside or after Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2. This has led to much speculation in the community, with some believing it could be a new Starcraft game.

As seen above, this speculation is rooted in Blizzard’s Mike Ybarra simply responding with a happy face to Shang Chi and the Ten Rings star Simu Liu’s calls to “save” Starcraft. Of course, this is just speculation, and Corden could know of another game. Its possible Blizzard has more than just two projects in development other than Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, especially if Blizzard’s roadmap is as strong as is claimed.


Still, fans will likely remain in the dark on these new titles for a while. Not only does Blizzard have to work on them, but Activision Blizzard as a whole has an entire workplace culture it has to work to improve. On top of that even, there’s Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard to consider which could bolster the development of these games, if secondary to hopefully tackling Activision-Blizzard’s culture.
