Blizzard are hiring people for their Diablo team and it's evident they're creating more content for the series, either in the form of Diablo 4 or expansions for Diablo 3.

Diablo fans rejoice, more content is on the way. It's still on grass roots level where Blizzard is just hiring staff for content development. The bad news is, Blizzard really take their time with new content. Diablo 3 was released in 2012 and had content added to it over the course of 5 years, concluding with the Rise of The Necromancer in 2017. 

According to their job listings, there are several positions open in order to expand their Diablo team, and some of them are strictly content creation oriented.

There are two listings in the Character Artist department, one of them being Senior Character Artist. Job descriptions are same for the most part, with only requirements being different, where the Senior Character Artists is required to have 6-8+ years of experience in the field while the regular one requires four. 

They noted that ''The ideal candidate understands that character work does not end in ZBrush, and can texture, model and optimize just as well as they can sculpt''. Skills in character creation alone are not enough though, as team players are given advantage. After all, creating Diablo's colorful cast is not a one person job.

Associate Produce is probably the most attractive open position right now. The short description reads ''The Diablo team is looking for a highly organized individual with outstanding communication, and project management skills. Self-direction and follow-up skills are a must, as well as the ability to anticipate production issues, and find effective solutions.''

This pretty much describes an individual that follows trends with a keen eye, while also being able to multitask effectively as they require the candidate to ''enjoy seeing a project from inception to completion and delivering games with the highest quality.''
