Overwatch developer Blizzard is working on more than just the Halloween 2017 event.
As fans count down to the start of the Halloween Terror event, new evidence has emerged of a potential Overwatch sequel or spinoff.
Blizzard has posted an advert for a new art intern at one of its studios. The successful candidate will be working on an unannounced project with ties to Overwatch.
“An unannounced project at Blizzard is seeking an intern to help create a wide range of assets to help bring our game to life,” the post reads.
“You will work closely with our concept, environment and character teams to create hard surface and organic props, weapons and possibly characters that are both detail-oriented and consistent with the art style we’ve defined.”
But what really has fans excited is the mention of Overwatch. Candidates should have “knowledge and understanding of the Overwatch universe”.
A spinoff, sequel or something completely different? Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
In the meantime, fans can check out the Halloween Terror event, which launches later today.
The Halloween event will launch with 50 new items, as well as a host of Legendary skins.
This includes new costumes for Reaper, Mei, Symmetra and Zenyatta, as well as a Van Helsing-inspired number for McCree.
Fans can also expect the return of the Junkenstein’s Revenge game mode.
Taking place on a modified version of the Eichenwalde map, Junkenstein’s Revenge is described as Overwatch’s first ever PvE brawl.
Players can choose from either McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo or Ana for the event, which features three different difficulty levels.
“Team up with three other players and face off against a host of eerie enemies, including Dr. Junkenstein himself, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Reaper, a mysterious witch, and host of shambling zomnics,” reads last year’s Halloween Terror blog post.
“This terrifying tale follows Dr. Jamison Junkenstein, an inventor and scientist who was once employed by the Lord of Adlersbrunn.
“Junkenstein’s dream was to create artificial life, but the Lord of Adlersbrunn mocked the scientist and his creations, calling him a fool and dismissing him from service. Slighted, Junkenstein vowed to prove the lord wrong, and when an unexpected visitor showed up and offered the key to perfecting his creation, Junkenstein’s Monster was born.
“Now Junkenstein plans his revenge against the Lord of Adlersbrunn, and only four heroes stand in the way.”
