Blizzard's most recent job listing has given an unusually candid insight into the publisher's next game.

From the posting - since deleted from the publisher's career hub - we now know that the studio's next project will be a mobile MMO RTS title - that's Massively Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy game in long-hand.

The job listing also makes it clear that the project will run on the Unity platform, just like the studio's current flagship mobile title, Hearthstone.

There's not much else to go on right now, but we've run the full job posting for you below. Perhaps we'll hear more about the new game at the publisher's annual BlizzCon fan-gathering in November?
