Blizzard Entertainment announced last week that it had a new triple-A survival game in development for consoles and PC. Based in a new fantasy universe, it’s apparently been in the works for five years. However, it seems that the studio has even more up its sleeve.

On The Xbox Two podcast, Rand al Thor 19 spoke Windows Central’s Jez Corden who had previously talked about Blizzard having several unannounced games in development. When asked if he had known that the new survival game was one of them, Corden replied, “No, it wasn’t. I was expecting them to announce a different game last week. I did not know about this one but I did know about another, which I’m not going to talk about because I don’t want to get anyone in trouble.”

“I’ve been told that Blizzard’s roadmap is very strong. That’s what I’ve been told basically.” Corden further added that the company was at the stage of “appeasing the crowd” along with being aware of its numerous mistakes (Warcraft and StarCraft being the examples provided). Though initially skeptical of new head Mike Ybarra making an impact, Corden has heard from his contacts at Blizzard that there’s “a sense of optimism” that “hasn’t been there for years.”

How things will ultimately play out, especially following the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard by Microsoft and concerns about consolidation, remains to be seen. Among its various new projects, Blizzard is still working on Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 which faced delays. The 2022 season of Overwatch League, which starts in April 2022, will be played on an early build of Overwatch 2 – check out some pro exhibition matches for the game here.
