A brand new job listing has surfaced at Blizzard's employment site, focusing on a currently unannounced Diablo title. Yes, it actually says that. Will it be the long-rumored Diablo "MMO" to rival Path of Exile's dominating force in the ARPG genre? PCGamesN picked up on the story earlier today, and here are some of the requirements and job description:

What will it take to be successful in this role? Well, we’re always looking for people who are game developers first and who can help us become even better than we are today, so these are probably some of your previous achievements:
  • Work directly with level design to build atmospheric dungeons with a focus on composition, detail and mood, while ensuring that the gameplay space is readable.
  • Author environmental assets for a modern pipeline including modeling, and texturing assets for the Diablo World
  • Work with Lead Environment Artist and the Art Director to ensure all environments are meeting the high-quality bar Blizzard is known for.
