Blizzard Careers had removed the DIABLO IMMORTAL jobs category and most of the Diablo Immortal job openings a few months ago, except for the Senior Product Manager postion that was listed under the MOBILE category.
Today, the DIABLO IMMORTAL jobs category appeared out of the blue again. There is a Senior UX Designer job opening posted there without text -- which means it might be work in progress.
I'll updated as soon as anything changes either way. Follow @blizzplanetcom for updates.
Note: To understand what a User Experience Designer does, I usually refer people who ask me what that is to this article written by an EA DICE Senior UX designer.
UPDATE (6:30pm): The blank page has now been updated with the job description. We also now get the genre classification for Diablo Immortal... a mobile massively multiplayer action-RPG (ARPG)
