More Overwatch Lore Incoming, Suggests Blizzard Job Listing
There’s no denying that Blizzard Entertainment has been doing a pretty fantastic job with their wildly successful FPS. While the title is an online team-based shooter, the company has done fairly well by fans in terms of keeping the content coming. Thanks to a recent job listing on Blizzard’s website, however, it looks like the goods will keep on flowing, and possibly in the form of more Overwatch lore.
The job listing in question is for a writing position at Blizzard Entertainment. They are “looking for a talented and experienced creative writer to join the Overwatch team,” with duties including “dialogue writing, research, editing, story development, and intellectual property management.” That seems like standard stuff, but it’s the responsibilities that are particularly interesting. Check them out:
- Quickly write and iterate on compelling dialogue for characters, missions, and scenes
- Grow and add value to the Overwatch universe, while maintaining the vision
- Contribute to the story development of the Overwatch universe
- Write descriptions of the world, factions, characters, and history
- Do research gathering and documentation for the Overwatch world
- Perform editing tasks as needed
- Perform other duties that may be assigned by team management
Now, we don’t know about you, but that sounds an awful lot like the writer-to-be-hired will be further developing the Overwatch lore. To take it a step further, this could also be related to a single-player campaign that fans are surely craving at this point. That’s a complete long shot, but stranger things have happened. Until this writer position is filled, we’ll just have to keep speculating.
Overwatch is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you’re interested in becoming a writer for Blizzard Entertainment and the Overwatch team, you can find the listing right here.
