Blizzard Comments On Blizzcon Diablo Speculation

The folks at Blizzard released an official post titled “Diablo At Blizzcon 2018” in which they comment on fan speculation and theories regarding the franchise. Back in June, a job listing on the Blizzard site indicated that the company was looking for a “Dungeon Artist” for Diablo, getting many fans (myself included) hyped for a sequel to Diablo 3. The new post from Blizzard makes it seem that we’re unlikely to get any big announcement on this at Blizzcon 2018.

We know for a fact that the company is working on “multiple Diablo projects” as community manager Brandy Camel confirmed in a video posted on Twitter in early August.

These projects were referenced again in Blizzard’s latest post:

“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.”

They followed this saying, “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.”

Translation: Blizzard just isn’t ready yet to talk about Diablo 4. It’s possible they’re not in a point in development where they feel comfortable showing us their progress or it may be a more business-related decision not to reveal anything at Blizzcon. Despite not giving fans what they truly want – an update on Diablo 4 – they’ll try to appease us with some other Diablo-related news such as the animated Netflix adaptation that was hinted at last month.
