Blizzard To Announce Multiple Diablo Projects Next Year
Blizzard has generated a lot of buzz lately since their presentation during their BlizzCon event last month. There were high expectations for the Diablo franchise despite the developer’s efforts moderate any hype, but once the train leaves the station, it’s hard to mitigate the anticipation. Despite the open disappointment from the community upon the reveal of Diablo Immortal, Blizzard already had plans to announce multiple franchise-related projects and it will all begin next year.
In response to the forum discussion on the Battle.net forum, a representative from the Blizzard team presented an open statement to the community. It read:
We continue to read feedback and our internal discussions are ongoing. We have many plans for Diablo across multiple projects which we’ll be revealing over the course of the coming year. We are eager to share more about all of our projects, but some will have to wait as we prefer to show you, rather than tell you, about them. It’s going to take some time as we strive to meet your expectations, but now, more than ever, we are committed to delivering Diablo experiences the community can be proud of.”
It’s going to take a lot of effort to “make up” for the disappointment fans felt during the Diablo announcements during BlizzCon 2018. Based on the in-forum response, many fans feel like this statement was simply “PR rhetoric” and more can be done to please the community. With that said, there are plenty of folks out there looking forward to what Blizzard has in store for the world. It’s just going to take some time and reassurance.
What do you think about Blizzard’s response to the community since BlizzCon last month? Do you think they could do a better job at communicating with fans, or is this the best they can do until there’s something to show for it?
