Despite World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment having yet to officially confirm projects for next-generation consoles, what we'll describe as 'a very strong suggestion' that the studio has plans for the new machines has finally emerged.
In a job posting for the role of Senior Producer on console games appearing on Blizzard.com, accompanying word on the responsibilities and requirements attached to the position is a note that "Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii production experience" is a plus.
Unsurprisingly, there's no mention of games in the job posting, but it's speculated that the position could be linked to StarCraft: Ghost meaning, possibly, next-gen versions of the game are planned. Earlier in the year, Blizzard announced it was indefinitely postponing production on Ghost - confirmed only for current-gen - and weighing up options.
.For anyone not familiar with StarCraft Ghost, it is/was an offshoot of the StarCraft sci-fi RTS games and stars a female stealth operative called Nova, who's charged with undertaking the usual dangerous set of missions in the StarCraft universe.
Anyway, all we can do is keep bums parked in seats and await official word from the developer on next-gen initiatives.
