Unannounced Blizzard First-Person Game Features Vehicles

A new job listing on Blizzard Careers puts out the call for a Senior Software Engineer for an unannounced game (thanks DSOGaming). There are hints about the nature of the project, though, which will be a first-person game for multiple platforms with a heavy vehicular emphasis, as the word vehicle appears five times on that page. Here's the post:
Blizzard Entertainment is looking for a talented gameplay engineer to help create vehicles and build vehicle handling features in a robust first-person engine for an unannounced project. The ideal candidate has proven experience in vehicle handling, with exposure to other game systems like physics, animation, and cameras. They must have outstanding people skills and a longstanding passion for playing games across multiple genres and platforms.

Responsibilities

  • Work closely with designers, artists, and other engineers to ensure a great player experience
  • Work with animators and technical artists to ensure a powerful and easy workflow
  • Collaborate with other members of the engineering team to build optimized, sustainable, and maintainable technologies and code
  • Serve as the bridge between our engine technology, game design, and art
  • Bring great ideas from inception to fruition
  • Champion Blizzard Entertainment’s core values—especially “Gameplay First”

Finally a Rock & Roll Racing sequel?

Not that we need it, but that would be... interesting.

So many fond memories of time wasted playing Rock & Roll Racing. 25% of that time was trying to find a video store that had it for rent. Never could find it to buy for some reason (or my parents wouldn't buy it. Cant remember, too long ago).

Not sure how first person would work, but wont knock it till I try it if that's what they are doing.
I never wanted to do this job in the first place! I... I wanted to be... A LUMBERJACK! Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Giant Redwood tree! The Seq
