After the news broke that Blizzard had begun working on “multiple Diablo Projects” possibly Diablo 4, everyone has been sitting and waiting patiently for BlizzCon 2018 to come around so they could see what the developer had in store for them. Well, it seems that Blizzard will share Diablo news at BlizzCon 2018 but they will not announce all their current Diablo projects.
According to the official Diablo blog, Blizzard released a statement regarding the rumoured Netflix show as well as the possible Diablo 4 announcement.
BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
So that statement does not deny a Diablo announcement at BlizzCon but it does not confirm it either. All that it says is that there will be Diablo-related news. It could be just another “hey, we are working on games” stunt but we will have to wait and see what happens.
We will be covering BlizzCon 2018 as it happens and we may have a little surprise in store for our Blizzard readers too. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we reveal more. Let’s just say we may have a giveaway based just around BlizzCon 2018.
Do you think Diablo 4 will be teased at the show? Let us know in the comments below.
