Blizzard Has Multiple Diablo Projects In-Development, Not All of Them Will Be at Blizzcon


We're a couple of weeks from BlizzCon and this year the game on everybody's lips seems to be Diablo. And while Diablo will have an expanded presence at BlizzCon this year, Blizzard seems to be tempering expectations regarding new Diablo announcements.

"BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we've seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show," Blizzard writes in a new blog post published today. "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."

From the tone of the blog post it sounds like Blizzard is trying to get ahead of the Diablo-related rumors before BlizzCon starts. Stories about a new Diablo 3 expansion, Diablo 2 remaster, and Diablo 4 have been flying around the internet in the leadup to BlizzCon 2018 and while Blizzard announced that there are in-fact multiple Diablo projects in the Blizzard pipeline, we should probably keep our expectations in check at BlizzCon.

Diablo 3 on the Nintendo Switch

We know that Diablo will be important at BlizzCon this year because both the scheduling and the floor maps shows Diablo taking the main stage at BlizzCon this year. Diablo 3 will also come out on the Nintendo Switch the same day as the start of BlizzCon. Still Blizzard seems to be advising caution ahead of BlizzCon. Maybe we'll see Diablo 4, maybe we'll hear about a Diablo remaster, but maybe we shouldn't expect both or either.

Or this is all just a game of four-dimensional chess and Blizzard will announce all the Diablo projects (probably not).
