Blizzard might be working on a new game with vehicles

The job listing posted on the Blizzard careers page features a Senior Software Engineer.

Several months ago, Blizzard teased that it has multiple new IPs in the works, but has said that it will "take time" in order to develop these titles due to the company's high benchmark of what constitutes a quality product.

The listing specifically cites the unannounced project so it's unlikely that vehicle gameplay will be for any existing first-person Blizzard title, of which there is only Overwatch.

"The ideal candidate has proven experience in vehicle handling, with exposure to other game systems like physics, animation, and cameras", Blizzard says in the posting. Although there are vehicles in a few games they have made, these do not have specific "handling features", let alone be in first-person.

The project is unannounced so could be in the very early stages of development.

So, the new team will work on vehicles that will be used in a first-person view.

Several job listings popped up back in June for the unannounced shooter, in development at Blizzard's headquarters in Irvine.

It would be interesting how vehicles will interact with the current "Overwatch" gameplay. Or, could it be that Blizzard are taking all the lessons they've learned from their popular MOBA and creating something entirely new? Will there be character-specific vehicles that amplify current abilities or will there be "one-size-fits-all" vehicles that give added benefits such as increased survivability or firepower?
