#Overwatch” has accomplished an impressive feat since it was officially launched in May 2016. Currently, Blizzard’s popular first-person shooter title is one of the widely played games in the gaming community. It has also a massive player base that is active in all its events and activities. Even the game’s upcoming League kick-off in December has been anticipated to rake in a favorable income for Blizzard. Interestingly, the game developer seems to be working on a new project based on its popular first-person shooter title.

Internship opening

On the developer’s official website [VIDEO], an internship opening was posted on the Careers page.

Blizzard is looking for a Generalist Artist who will be a part of an #unannounced project, which has a wide range of assets. One of the qualifications posted in the internship opening under talents is that the candidate must have knowledge of Blizzard’s popular FPS title’s lore.

Those accepted will work fulltime with Blizzard starting May 2018 until August 2018. The lucky candidate will be working on making game assets from previous concept art and character teams. The position is for students and will only last for several months in the developer’s office in Irvine, California in 2018.

While this posting indicates that it is working on an unannounced project, it is hardly a confirmation that it is a new “Overwatch” title or an expansion. Blizzard has posted other job openings for individuals with experience in first-person shooter titles.

This posting in June sparked speculation in the community of the potential game expansion in the works.

Halloween Terror Event 2017

Players are now waiting for the launch of the #Halloween Terror Event 2017. Community manager Geoff Goodman previously said that along with Patch 1.16, the Halloween event will debut on October 10. Fans are excited to see what this year’s event will offer them. So far, players are speculating that the Junkenstein’s Revenge will make a comeback similar to the Summer Games 2017 where Lucioball return.

Aside from that, last year’s “Overwatch” Halloween skins are also expected to be available at a special discounted price. Earlier, an advertisement on the social networking site, Facebook, [VIDEO]had been posted ahead of schedule, which triggered many leaks about the event’s skins. This includes skins for Zenyatta, Symmetra, Mei, and Reaper. Several players are excited about Zenyatta’s skin claiming that it could be the Cthulhu skin. While others want to have the sexy and dark themed skin of Symmetra or the Dracula-inspired skin of Reaper.
