Blizzard has multiple Diablo projects in the pipeline

  1. Blizzard Entertainment is working on multiple Diablo projects, the developer and publisher revealed on Wednesday.

    The admission came as part of a short video posted on Twitter by community manager Brandy Camel. In it, she said some of the projects will take longer than others, adding that the company may have some things to share with fans later this year.


    The teaser comes on the eve of QuakeCon and likely points to a reveal of some sort at BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard’s annual gaming convention. So, what exactly can we expect?

    Camel didn’t let any cats out of the bag but according to multiple sources reporting earlier this year, Blizzard is looking to bring Diablo III to the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo’s newest gaming platform had one heck of a first year and it only makes sense for Blizzard to bring one of its biggest franchises to the system.

    We learned in June that Blizzard was looking to hire nearly a dozen full-time employees to work on an unannounced Diablo project. The general consensus seem to be that this project is a sequel to Diablo III – not exactly a stretch of the imagination considering the last major game in the franchise launched more than six years ago.

    BlizzCon 2018 kicks off on November 2 and runs through November 4 in Anaheim, California.

    The Deckard Cain quote was nice but my expectations are:

    1. Diablo mobile clicker game.
    2. Card game.
    3. Virtual card game.

    Just give us Diablo 1 and 2 hd with battlenet support, Diablo 3 was a disaster, we don't need another wannabe like Jay Wilson's Goldenaxe with a Diablo skin action brawler, give me Diablo, gothic horror with non cartoon graphics, buckets of blood and Gore, and a despair that winning against evil is only a trade-off or a loss of a different measure, and a deep complex RPG system that makes a person think rather than just limited to the same 5 builds in the same gear because nothing else is actually viable because the devs want you to play their way and not in the spirit of the series where you get to choose how you biuld your own character.

    If you can't handle it let GGG of it PoE is the Diablo 3 we never got.

    Don't think my wrist has recovered though!

    Seriously, don't think I can play another diablo game. I came pretty close to permanent damage.

    I really enjoyed the Diablos, but Titan Quest still takes the cake. They even just (somehow) released a Valhalla expansion out of the blue! Who knew they even had a staff, still? Cool stuff.

    I think Diablo 3 was okay, but for Diablo 4 to be relevant they need to tackle all the hard stuff that Torchlight, Titan Quest, Path of Exiles, and Grim Dawn have perfected. We don't need more of the same. We need better.
