    I am thinking it is a game set in the Overwatch Universe for mobile.

    i should care about this because why? blizzard had the crapfest that is shadowlands, followed by the crapfest that is d2 remastered, followed by the severe letdown of the merc mode in hearthstone. i don't trust this company one bit anymore.

    Oh god they're planning on making it a looter shooter aren't they. FPS, RPG Reward Mechanics and Open World, Destiny by Blizzard.

    That is the first thing that came to my mind as well. FPS RPG open world.

    Something akin to Elex i guess? It would be probably single player with multiplayer elements tho.

    It think it will be more SP than multiplayer tho. Otherwise they would be trying to make basically Titan which they canceled.

    doubt it. they've had what 4-6 projects in the works for a couple years now? even if (or perhaps especially if) they axed half of those, with all the stuff going on last year i seriously doubt they have been allowed to start a new project in the last year.

    I wouldn't hold my breath, this is going to probably be some kind of mobile shovelware.

    In Blizzard development time 5 years old is very new when it comes to an IP.

    That being said I can't say I'm particularly hyped over the posting, because looter/shooter RPGs tend have a major lack of replay value for me. ARPGs with melee combat I can replay just fine, but a shooter? Man I don't even think I've beaten any of the Borderlands games on the second difficulty tier even once, because they just turn half the game into a chore of inventory and ammo management. The stats leading to you firing 100+ bullets into the head of an enemy and it doing less than 10% of their health in damage are why I hate shooters that bring RPG number scaling into them (I'm looking at you Anthem, The Division, Borderlands, Outriders, and any other offenders that just constantly go bigger instead of taking the sane route and implementing scaling ingoing/outgoing damage modifiers while keeping health pools consistent).

    Destiny is literally the only one the looter/shooter genre that I've played that gets a pass from me, because it keeps scaling in place so that you actually can reasonably kill stuff appropriate to your gear power level. It keeps the numbers relative, rather than going the dumb route and hyperinflating them for no good reason.

    (If anyone knows of other looter shooters that keep that use a scaling system instead of going for raw number inflation, please recommend them to me, cause I actually can have fun when I'm not being poked with the stick of "You shot this enemy 25 times in a weakpoint with a sniper rifle, they've lost 5% of their health because your gun is trash".)

    Blizzard can't even make the current MMO they have, why would you want another.

    They only care about money so it'll just be another out-sourced phone game

    thats the perfect description what happens, when you solely target absolut maximum profit, not by selling a product via quality and let the product speak for itself, but by stretching every nanometer to press/milk even the last dollar out of it.

    namely:

    - recycling stuff
    - cost effective development
    - put in least possible effort and press most out of it, regardless how fucked up
    - use marketing instead quality, to sell shit as gold
    - tailoring game design around smart cash grab systems like Token
    - invest in cheap „systems“ because its just DB entries and simple UIs instead real content
    - (because real content is expensive)
    - use many of that cheap „systems“ to create the illusion of a long feature list
    - (because „covenants, soulbinds, anima, …“ sound better than „moar (real) content“)
    - (and its way cheaper)
    - use auto generated gear
    - use rng on top of rng
    - use treadmill grinds
    - maximize the carrot on the stick
    - stretch content holes with classic release
    - dont listen to beta ppl
    - do quick customizations in patch and give ppl what they complained a year ago
    - quickly use this patch as damage control
    - add all the things that are fast and easy done into this patch to create long patch notes
    - name this patch 9.1.5 content patch
    - stretch
    - stretch
    - stretch
    - milk
    - milk
    - milk
    - „cause of covid“

    yes, if you do all this, you get rich. very rich. rich AF. and you created something that is not passionate or beautiful but instead sterile, fake, soulless, empty and without spirit.

    yep, thats true.

    How does this not look like Destiny? Is that something to get excited about? They've got the Overwatch engine for FPS. I dunno...it may be something. Sort of a fool's game to think you know what they're doing based on a want ad.

    Blizzard becoming another CoD assembly line would indeed be hillarious, at that seems to be a commong thing for activision studios. But I don't think it would bode well for the future. I mean even if it was star craft based, the whole FPS MMO thing these days will just always boil down to something like destiny and there is already one version of that I have no interest in, no need for another with Blizzard's "spin".

    The reason why BfA and especially Shadowlands were made a crapfest might have something so do with Blizzard's best talent working on this mobile mmo.. It makes sense that they would want to maximize profits after having seen Genshin..

    A weirdly sterilized and overly limited version of Genshin with super slow release cycles, sounds like a total money maker - said no one ever.

    The job description mentions a mobile open-world RPG game and the ideal candidate should have experience working on FPS online/multiplayer games.

    Because mobile is the new sh*t! Remember Immortal?

    You clearly understand how a business works.

    "Understanding of RPG reward mechanics"

    Can they have one for the WoW team too?
