Report: Diablo III Nintendo Switch Port In Production, Sources Confirm
There’s no denying that Blizzard Entertainment is one company that stands out when it comes to teasing fans. After all, they’ve had nearly three decades to fine tune their skills, as is seen each time a new Overwatch hero is gearing up to join the fight. However, a recent video posted to their Twitter account sent fans into a frenzy because it hinted at a possible Diablo III Nintendo Switch port. Despite Blizzard shooting down this rumor, sources are now confirming that it is indeed happening.
“As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch,” Blizzard said in a follow-up. While we can dissect that statement until the end of time, we’ll refrain. According to Eurogamer, however, sources are confirming “that yes – the project is very much in production.” Unfortunately, they were not able to confirm whether or not the game’s two expansions, Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer, would be part of the Diablo III Nintendo Switch port. To see where this all started, check out the following tweet:

In a phone call, Blizzard was quick to deny the notion of Diablo-ing on the go, saying, “We can assure you we’re not that clever. It was meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce.” Yeah, we’ll go ahead and believe that. Right after we believe Activision isn’t working on a Spyro the Dragon remaster. What they really wanted to do was engage the community about how much they would want a Diablo III Nintendo Switch port, and the fans have spoken. Your move, Blizzard.
We have no idea when the announcement might be happening, but third-party titles for the hybrid console are revealed relatively close to launch. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
