Blizzard is currently in the process of being acquired by Microsoft and Xbox Game Studios, and it's just announced that it's working on a brand-new survival game for console and PC, with the hiring process already in full force.
The game is untitled for now, but Blizzard says it's "going on a journey to a whole new universe" with the title, putting out calls for artists, designers and engineers to work on it. Here's a bit of description about the project:
"Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored."
No further details have been revealed about the game as of yet, although the company has acknowledged that it's in the "early stage" — so in other words, don't expect many details or anything resembling a release date for a few years yet.
Nevertheless, it's always exciting to get a new game announcement under the Xbox Game Studios umbrella, and it seems a very likely bet that whatever this turns out to be, it'll be available with Xbox Game Pass on day one.
