Blizzard Entertainment will unveil a “top-secret project” sometime this year, according to new hire Alan Precourt’s LinkedIn profile (spotted by Kotaku contributor Superannuation).

Precourt, a who joined Blizzard in February as a senior compositor for cinematics but now serves as a senior lighting artist, is handing in-game lighting on this unannounced, unnamed project. Prior to blizzard, Precourt handled lighting and cinematics for Cloud Imperium Games, an independent studio founded by Wing Commander and Freelancer creator Chris Roberts, and did lighting and composition work for Disney’s Frozen.

Just last month, Blizzard filed a trademark for something gaming related titled Overwatch. On the company’s official website, under career opportunities, there is a listing for lead producer on an “unannounced game title,” which could be Overwatch. Other possibilities include more Diablo III or World of Warcraft expansions and, less likely, Titan, a project that’s status seems perilous at best.
