Blizzard heavily hints that you shouldn’t expect Diablo 4 at BlizzCon 2018


Today, Blizzard posted a semi-mysterious blog post about what to expect from the Diablo series at BlizzCon 2018. It’s not specific about anything that’ll be at the show, but it does suggest that you should keep your expectations modest for new announcements next month. Some number of the multiple Diablo projects will be shown there, but others will be revealed “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.”

The thing most fans are hoping for, of course, is Diablo 4, and it certainly seems that Blizzard wants to keep the hype down for such an announcement as best the company can manage. The post adds “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.”

In a video titled The Future of Diablo back in August, community manager Brandy Camel said “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.”

We’ve been reporting on Diablo 4 possibilities for years, with job postings giving us a hint about what to expect from the next Diablo game. We’ve heard similar rumblings of a mobile Diablo title as well, which certainly could be Blizzard’s next announcement – though showing a mobile game without confirming Diablo 4 wouldn’t go down super well with series fans.

BlizzCon 2018 is scheduled for November 2 and 3, and the annual event is the perfect stage for an announcement on the scale of a new, numbered Diablo – but at this point, that seems unlikely.
