Blizzard’s New IP: Modern Online Survival Meets Fantasy

Blizzard’s next big IP might be an interesting take on a child in the court of King Arthur and the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe.


Today Blizzard confirmed he is working on an ambitious new IP. The Nameless Project is a survival game that fuses modern and fantasy, according to details gleaned from a brief look at concept art. The job postings also confirm that the new IP will be an online adventure, which is Blizzard’s usual fare.

“Blizzard embarks on our next quest. We’re embarking on a journey to an all-new universe, home to an all-new survival game for PC and console. A place filled with heroes we’ve yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibilities, waiting to be explored.” reads a job offer.

We’ve known about Blizzard’s new IPs for a long time. The company has been incubating this new IP and another unannounced multiplayer shooter for a while, and Blizzard is also trying to create a shared game engine to power its future titles.

Alan Adham discussed the new incubation pipeline in August 2021:

“We’re tight-lipped about this, but our new game pipeline has been in development for many years and is more important than ever across our mainline and mobile franchises, new IPs and new genres. I look forward to our teams launching their already announced new games in the not-too-distant future and timely announcing a few new ones you haven’t heard of yet,” Adam said.
