During Blizzcon 2018, many fans were hoping for a Diablo 4 announcement, but that never came. Nonetheless, hope is not lost just yet. There have been several reports which seem to indicate that Blizzard hasn’t forgotten about the Diablo games, and there is a chance that we might still receive a new one.
If we go back to August, we had a statement made by community manager Brandy Camel. At the beginning of Diablo 3: Season 14 he declared the following:
“The forges here at Blizzard are burning hot. And we have multiple Diablo projects in the works. Some of them are going to take longer than others. But we may have some things to show you later this year. We hope you stay tuned, while we work to bring these Diablo experiences to life. None of this would be possible without the support that you have shown us for over 20 years. So whether you first joined us in Diablo 3 or you are a seasoned veteran, thanks you. Diablo is, and always will be, part of Blizzard’s identity, and we can’t wait for the future.”
The statement clearly indicates that there are multiple Diablo projects in the works. This means that a new game is definitely a possibility. More than that, there was also a video titled “The Future of Diablo”, which was posted next to the statement. That year we did receive a mobile game named Diablo Immortal, but fans weren’t really impressed by it.
Does Diablo 4 exist?
We do believe that developers are also working on an upcoming game for the series. The biggest clue were several job listing posted by Blizzard, such as: “”We are working on a new, unannounced Diablo project. Are you a skilled Dungeon Artist? Come work with us, and together we will build something exceptional.”
It appears that Blizzard has been looking for many artists, and back in 2016 it even announced that it searches a new game director for Diablo. Therefore, it is highly likely that Diablo 4 might be in the works.
