Blizzard Is Working On A New Unannounced Diablo Game

A job posting from Blizzard confirms work on a project in the Diablo universe.

Video game developer Blizzard has not made any announcements but it seems that there is a new Diablo game in the works.

A job listing on the company’s website is hinting that a development is underway. Looking at the post, it is pretty straightforward: “The minions of Hell are growing stronger… We’re working on a new, unannounced Diablo project.”

Previously, the California-based company has teased about a Nintendo Switch version of Diablo. But people are quick to dismiss that the unannounced Diablo project is referring to this. The description asks for a “skilled dungeon artist”. This means there is a need for new art assets.

The exact description states:

“We’re working on a new, unannounced Diablo project. Are you a skilled dungeon artist? Come work with us, and together we will build something exceptional.”

The dungeon artist will be responsible for “modelling and texturing compelling assets.” He is also expected to work well “in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, making great games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot!”

The 24th Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is already happening next week so it’s highly doubtful a new Diablo game will be unveiled there. However, they could probably announce that it will be in the works? Maybe. We’re actually hoping they will.

Diablo 3 is turning six years old this year. I think it’s about time for a new one, don’t you think?

Apple issues new App Store rules For Streaming PC-based games

Tech giant Apple Inc. has issued new review guidelines for App Store intended for streaming PC-based video games. Apple’s decision attempts to block Steam’s proposal to extend its reach in both iPhones and iPads.


Steam is the considered to be the biggest distributor of video games for PC.

Apple’s remote mirroring apps


The new guidelines of the Cupertino-based company would now decide what apps should appear in the App Store. This means that any applications could not host anything even that app looks like an app store that is within the app.



In short, the company won’t give any users the sole absolute ability to “browse, select, or purchase software not already owned or licensed by the user.”


According to Apple, these new rules are called “remote mirroring apps.” This new rule works by beaming the screen of a PC to an iPhone. By doing so, it could allow purchases outside Apple’s control, provided that any give transactions were processed on PC and not through iPhone.


Meanwhile, several tech users claim that Apple’s decision is certainly significant. They pointed out that the company wants only to shield its practice of taking between 15 percent and 30 percent of the purchase price of software bought in the App Store.



Steam has announced its plan to release a free mobile phone app called Steam Link so gamers could continue playing on their iPhones while away from their desktop machines.


But the Bellevue, Steam’s parent company, in a separate statement, has slammed Apple for rejecting the Steam Link app. The Steam Link app is a free mobile app that allows gamers to play video games using their iPhones.
