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.
Are you passionate about Lighting in games? Are you distracted from everyday life thinking about exposure values, lumens, and color palettes? Are you obsessed with how lighting can support gameplay in videogames? Do you love crafting fantastic worlds and stories that people will explore endlessly? Then you should apply. It doesn’t get much better than what we have to offer you!
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!
