Could It Be Possible That Blizzard Is Making a Shooter Based on WoW Universe?
Yesterday, Blizzard game director Michael Booth posted a new recruitment for his team on personal twitter: "My team is looking for a Lead Producer to help us create Blizzard's next awesome game", with a link to Blizzard official recruitment.
Before joining Blizzard Entertainment on May 2013 as game director of a new game team, Mike Booth was the CEO of Turtle Rock studio, who developed the popular FPS game Counter-Strike and zombie survival shooter Left 4 Dead. He shared credits as one of Counter-Strike programmers and leaded the project of Left 4 Dead. In addition, this team is also looking for 3D Weapons Artist and the description for the job requests that the candidate should have "experience working with a diverse range of equipment, vehicles, and mechanical characters."
It is easy to lead us to the assumption that Blizzard's next game might be a shooter. Just think about the development of Startcraft II. Dustin Browder, the former EA game designer who had a wealth of experience in developing RTS games (Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Command & Conquer: Generals and The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth series), joined Blizzard Entertainment in 2005. After 5 years, he showed off StarCraft II as the game director. Therefore, we have reason to believe that Blizzard is likely to develop a shooter.
