Blizzard has filed a trademark for “Overwatch” – possibly the name of an upcoming title from the crew that brought us Diablo, Hearthstone, StarCraft, and World of Warcraft.
Blizzard’s recruitment page also makes mention of an unannounced title. Coincidence?
The game makers have made multiple comments recently about breaking off into smaller teams to work on new kinds of games with a faster turnover, such as Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft – its collectible card game.
“We started up a new development team because we kind of recognised that we needed to have this ability to be more experimental, experiment with different types of games than what we were doing with our big, core franchises,” Jason Chayes said in a recent interview about Hearthstone.
A new Blizzard game might be on the cards – are you excited? What are your predictions? Let us know in the comments and the forum.
