Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, oddities…artists? We are the Overwatch team, passionate gamers at heart, and we’re looking for a new hero to help us make Overwatch 2 - the globe-spanning sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed team-based game.

In Overwatch 2, the nations of Earth are under assault. As the omnic forces of Null Sector launch a barrage of surprise attacks around the world, the planet’s governments and militaries prove quickly outmatched—and the remnants of the fearless strike force once known as Overwatch rally to make a valiant stand. Now the world’s heroes must each decide whether to answer the call to reemerge, reunite, and serve as a beacon of hope in a new era of crisis.

There’s no job in art quite like a Concept Artist. Whole worlds are born with the stroke of a brush…a moody painting of a harsh alien landscape, the intricate detail of scrollwork on a piece of armor, or even a simple pencil sketch of a funny little critter. The tiniest idea can take root and grow into an entire universe for players to explore. As a concept artist working on Overwatch , set Blizzard’s ground-breaking new universe, fearless imagination and bold talent will translate dreams to reality and continue to build the world of Overwatch and help shape Overwatch 2.

Using the skills of both artist and designer to their fullest potential, a concept artist lives on the front line of development. You’ll work closely with level designers and environment artists to bring our world to life. Your knowledge of industrial and shape design and color theory will be pushed to new heights designing this undiscovered world and bringing it to reality.

In short, you’ll be part of a close-knit, collaborative community of artists, engineers and designers whose goal isn’t just painting a pretty picture but rather to make a truly immersive game experience.

Nobody values the contributions of an environment concept artist like we do. If you’re ready to embrace the challenge of helping realize the next epic Blizzard title, we want to hear from you!

COVID-19 Hiring Update: We’ve transitioned to a work-from-home model and we’re continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We understand each person’s circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore possible interim options.
