According to the listing for a “generalist artist intern”, applicants are recommended to have a “Knowledge and understanding of the Overwatch universe,”. This statement alone has ME wondering if Blizzard might be working on a spin-off title, perhaps an Overwatch mobile game, an Overwatch Nintendo Switch game, Hearthstone style card game or even a 2D fighter.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Blizzard had indeed decided to capitalize on the wild success of their team-based shooter by releasing a spin-off title but whether this is the kind of product that fans of Overwatch really want from the developer is yet to be seen.

The specific details of the listing are below:
