Blizzard giveth, and Blizzard taketh away.
With Blizzard releasing new Diablo merch ahead of BlizzCon, speculation was that the new merchandise was in anticipation of a new Diablo game. Unfortunately, Blizzard has squashed that in a new blogpost.
“BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show,” the post reads. “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.”
The post does acknowledge that Blizzard will be sharing Diablo-related news (most likely the Netflix series), but also does suggest that Diablo 4 won’t be announced.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Diablo III: Eternal Collection for the Nintendo Switch will be out the first day of BlizzCon on November 2nd. And if you haven’t snagged a Switch, that Limited Edition Switch bundle at GameStop seems plenty of an incentive to do that.
