Blizzard Reveals "Unannounced Diablo Project"

The Blizzard Careers Website reveal that Blizzard is working on an unannounced Diablo project. They now have job listings for Dungeon Artist, Diablo and Environment Artist, Diablo, and each is listed under the heading of "unannounced project." Both listings talk about working in the Diablo environment, and come right out and say why right up top:
The minions of Hell are growing stronger...

We're working on a new, unannounced Diablo project.

I believe It's most likely some type of add-on or expansion for D3.

Has Blizzard ever confirmed a project in one of their main franchises like this before? The rumors are usually flying (usually for years) but they don't actually say anything till say a Blizzcon or other major Convention with a full unveil.

I get the feeling this is not a Diablo 4, hope I'm wrong. Though the idea of an Open World Diablo game mentioned below could be interesting. I wouldn't necessarily be mad about a World of Diablo either. Whatever it will be, we all know it will have revenue generators beyond just software sales..

Also, I look forward to the great Bluesnews Diablo news thread discussions. There were some doozies leading up to Diablo 3's release on this site, and well afterwards too.

Hopefully it's Diablo 4, and not:

A Battle Royale game with Diablo characters,
A MOBA,
A Rogue-Like/Rogue-Lite anything.



Diablo was originally intentionally a rogue/nethack lite game

I feel like this genre is burned out especially with PoE going strong. I wish they would open it up more, have a little exploration in there, bigger cities, more RPG etc. Instead it's just grind, grind, grind every second. Diablo 3 was good game, but as a Blizzard game it was very subpar, in my opinion. Shit, just make it a first person game; just do something, anything - different.

I suspect it might be some kind of rogue-lite game with overworld progression where you queue up with other players on dungeon runs for loot. In other words, something cheap to develop where they can also charge microtransactions. Whatever the case, I think it's highly likely they will be scaling back the single player/story aspect of the game.

Diablo open world game.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
