We Want You

A new world and a new journey await you. It is a world different from any other Blizzard has created.

If you’re a passionate game developer, and, well, a good human being, then we’d love to talk to you. We have a new AAA survival game in the works, set in a new IP for PC/Console. It’s going to be amazing, and we’d love to bring you along for the ride. Together, we’ll build something big, bold, and beautiful.

As a Hard Surface / Weapons Character Artist, your goal is to supply amazing weapons and other items for all the characters and creatures in the game. Sometimes they’re simple, sometimes they’re incredibly detailed, but they always require an artist’s touch to look as good as possible. Your contributions will pretty much always be visible in the game, so this is an exciting opportunity if you ask us!

We believe our team is good. Really good. Granted, we’re obviously biased. But we also believe there are lots of developers out there who can make us even better. You could be one of those people. If you’re looking for a team where inclusion, thoughtfulness, empathy, professionalism, and collaboration are all seen as critically important, we believe our team could be a phenomenal fit for you. Join us and help craft our future!
