    Blizzard Announces New Survival Game

    Blizzard Announces New Survival Game

    Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored.

    Every story needs a teller. And every world needs builders. What if that could be you?

    For thirty years, Blizzard has been creating universes for millions of players around the globe. This requires a diverse team of developers willing to lend their voices, to listen and to be heard. That is our mission.

    Do you like survival games? Do you want to join a collaborative team of experienced developers at the early stage of a new project in a new world...and help write the next chapter in Blizzard's story?

    This is your call to adventure. Will you answer it?

    Little late to this genre.

    Are we still doing survival games? This feels like when Konami chased Kojima out and then released a Metal Gear Zombie game, because Zombies were all the rage 5 years beforehand.

    Is the survival game a job at Blizzard?

    So I guess this is what most of the remaining Heroes devs have transferred to over the past 12 months.

    Nice to know they're trying new things, I suppose. I feel like announcing it before there's much to show might backfire though, even if the intent is to draw in people to work on the game.

    Eh I wouldn't say so. There isn't really one "survival game" that stands out as a real cultural icon, unless you count Minecraft as a survival game (which I don't). There's definitely room for a giant to come in and shake up the genre.
    Why am I back here, I don't even play these games anymore

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    An office work place survival game were you have to maintain your productivity while not letting your harassment tolerance falling below the "suicidal tendencies" line?

    Most games are late to their genre, does that means those games should be cancelled?

    Kinda surprised there announcing it this way. Seems like they might be having trouble recruiting.

    Also that it’s a new IP.

    Feels like they could do it in the Warcraft universe.

    Guess we’ll see how it turns out in 5 years.

    Love the comments, we know nothing about the game. Just wait.

    I already have Valhiem in my life that I am kinda addicted to. Unless its got a theme that will capture me as much as that game. (which I doubt it)

    If there's a solo mode survival with the option to bring in friends that would be great too, forced open world multiplayer survival I am not a fan of.
    "People fear, not death, but having life taken from them. Many waste the life given to them, occupying themselves with things that do not matter. When the end comes, they say they did not have time enough to spend with loved ones, to fulfill dreams, to go on adventures they only talked about... But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'" - Wynne ( Dragon Age: Origins.)

    Had loads of fun on the Conan Exiles offical servers untill my base that took me months to build was destroyed by hackers and Failcom did f**k all about it.

    No thanks.

    Sounds awesome. Survival games are awesome.
    Got a good laugh from people saying the genre is dead because they don’t play it. I guess shooters/fps is a dead genre too by that logic
