Blizzard Addresses Rumored Diablo Appearance At BlizzCon
Diablo has certainly been tangled around the rumor mill as of late, with speculation regarding cross-play and a possible all-new game lighting up the internet like the Burning Hells themselves. While both rumors were subsequently refuted, a Diablo announcement has nonetheless been expected sometime soon, especially with BlizzCon 2018 happening just around the corner.
Blizzard has now addressed this fan speculation in a recent blog post. While re-confirming the developer has multiple Diablo projects in the pipeline, it’s also said that BlizzCon proceedings will not debut any new information. Blizzard specifically shares they won’t be ready make formal reveals until “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.”
While the absence of any new Diablo reveals may be disappointing for fans to learn, it’s likely for the best that Blizzard lowered expectations before BlizzCon began. However, the Lord of Terror won’t be entirely missing from the event, as Diablo III for Nintendo Switch is to grace the show floor alongside an expected presence of Overwatch. BlizzCon 2018 is set to start on November 2nd, the same day Diablo III releases for the Switch.
