Speculation abounds of course what Blizz’s “Next Gen” MMO will be. Surfing their job board, it has many of the usual suspect postings for jobs on a new MMO– 3D artists, animators, etc. I did come across one that stuck out in my mind at least:
Blizzard Entertainment is currently seeking a highly talented game physics/collision programmer to help breathe life and realism into our next-generation MMO technologies. This is an exciting opportunity to envision and author innovative and cutting-edge physics and collision systems for today’s most advanced technology.
So whatever it is, can we assume that we’ll all be bouncing off monsters and each other in stead of just the walls? Will I be able to body block a mob? Richochet anyone? Or am I reading too much into this?
