BlizzCon 2018 Schedule Could Be Teasing Some Diablo News

Damnation.

Could this be the year that we get some new Diablo news? That's what the stars appear to be divining after the full BlizzCon schedule went live today.

Following the BlizzCon opening ceremonies on Friday, November 2, Blizzard will hold a Diablo: What's Next panel. According to Blizzard Watch, this panel is usually the one where the big news of the show takes center stage, and this year that honor goes to Diablo.

Whether this is a Diablo 4 announcement, a new expansion, or something else entirely is obviously not known, and we won't find out until BlizzCon starts. But we were promised more Diablo news earlier this year, and there's of course Diablo 3 coming to the Nintendo Switch.

It should be noted however that there's a total of two Diablo panels planned through BlizzCon, which maybe hints that whatever the Diablo news is, it won't be so massive as to take over the whole weekend. But Blizzard is clearly working on a lot of different things now, so maybe that's okay.

BlizzCon begins on November 2 this year and those who have a Virtual Ticket will be able to play a demo of World of WarCraft Classic. Check back in as we cover the most important parts of BlizzCon come November.
