The social media presence of big blue is spreading, as Blizzard heads to Instagram! There's two separate entries at the moment, with the company's official page and a lifeatblizzard page featuring photos of the devs and other employees having fun at the campus! Here are a couple of the photos:
There are actually at least two unannounced projects that we know of, the very mysterious first person game (very likely shooter) and the mobile game that we now know has ties to the Warcraft universe. A new job announcement for an FX artist has a line calling for "Passion for creating imagery synonymous with the Warcraft IP", which looks pretty self-explanatory. While some of the speculation was previously going around a Hearthstone spin-off with a StarCraft or Diablo thematic, this dispels them and puts the focus back on the big franchise. It would seem a Pet Battle-like completely new game, or direct extension of the WoW version is the front-runner in the speculation race.
Speaking of, what are your guesses and/or wishes for both the unannounced games?
