In a new job ad, Blizzard is currently looking for a new employee for the in-game shop in “Diablo 4”. The company also views the upcoming hack-and-slash as a live service game.
A new job ad from Blizzard could confirm what many “Diablo” fans have feared. The upcoming “Diablo 4” seems to get an in-game store. With a new job posting, Blizzard is currently looking for a Product Manager to manage the “Diablo 4 in-game shop experience.” The candidate should ideally have previous experience in a live service environment.
In-game shop as a key component
“Blizzard Entertainment is seeking a passionate, organized and ambitious individual to manage the Diablo 4 in-game shop experience,” reads the new job posting. “This role will be a key member of the Diablo 4 sales team. The ideal candidate will combine experience working in a live service gaming environment with meticulous attention to detail, strong interpersonal communication skills and a passion to delight our players.”
The mood in the “Diablo” community is currently irritated. “Diablo Immortal” was only released on June 2nd for mobile systems and for the PC. The title was released as a free-to-play model, but it also includes aggressive microtransactions. The announcement of an in-game shop for the upcoming “Diablo 4” therefore does not surprise the players.

However, many had hoped that Blizzard would refrain from this practice in the main games of the series. At least it started “Diablo 3” on PC in 2012 with a real money auction house. However, this was heavily criticized by the players. Almost two years after the opening of the auction house, it was closed again in 2014. Former Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson explained at the time that he felt the auction house’s existence had “really hurt” the game.
