Blizzard Is Looking For A New Writer To Join Overwatch

In case you had any worries that Blizzard may not be working on more Overwatch content for years to come, take a gander at this new job listing on their website as the company is looking to hire a new writer to their staff. The details of what this position could be in charge of creating are unknown but considering all of the one-shot videos that have been created as well as the digital comic books and events like Uprising, it only makes sense that the company would be looking for more creative individuals to flush out the lore of this world and its future for years to come. Because let’s be honest, if the company has been running World Of Warcraft all these years with new updates and stories and never once in the nearly 14 years since it was released created a World Of Warcraft 2, chances are they’re going to keep the same model running for Overwatch.
