Diablo fans are among the longest suffering subgroups of Blizzard aficionados, but the end is in sight – the studio says we’re going to see more Diablo “later this year.” If you’re feeling incredibly optimistic you may mean a Diablo 4 announcement at BlizzCon. Though that’s not the only possibility, it’s not an unlikely scenario.
In a video titled The Future of Diablo, community manager Brandy Camel says “the forges here at Blizzard are burning hot, and we have multiple Diablo projects in the works. Some of them are going to take longer than others. But we may have some things to show you later this year. We hope you stay tuned while we work to bring these Diablo experiences to life.”
We’ve been reporting on Diablo 4 possibilities for years, with job postings giving us a hint about what to expect from the next Diablo game. We’ve heard similar rumblings of a mobile Diablo title as well, which certainly could be Blizzard’s next announcement – though showing a mobile game without confirming Diablo 4 wouldn’t go down super well with series fans.
BlizzCon 2018 is scheduled for November 2 and 3, and the annual event is the perfect stage for an announcement on the scale of a new Diablo. Again, no guarantee – but you and I are both secretly hoping for it, and Blizzard has to know. (Right?)
Today’s video also offers some detail on Diablo 3’s new season structure, which recently kicked off with the Season of Greed – that themed season path is set to continue in the future. You can find out more about that directly from Blizzard while you hack and slash away the hours in hot anticipation of whatever’s next.
