Diablo IV Will Release More Dev Updates Throughout 2021
Diablo IV had quite the showing during this year’s opening presentation for BlizzCon, with Blizzard opening up about the highly anticipated title and confirming the game’s 4th playable class, Rogue. While fans were left thirsting for more info, it looks like more Diablo IV news will be released quarterly throughout the remainder of 2021.
In a recent interview with Comicbook, Diablo IV lead systems designer Joe Piepiora confirmed that quarterly updates for the game will be released over the course of the year, not unlike what was done for 2020. That said, an update during the first quarter of this year will not take place due to all the info provided during BlizzCon. “We love the quarterly updates. It’s a great way for us because we’re so iterative as a development team,” Piepiora explained during the interview. “We love the idea of being able to put out like a blog post with some pretty detailed, meaty design information to give you a sense of how the game’s going to play and just seeing the community’s reaction to it.”
We do take that feedback that we get […] and we try to integrate that into our thinking as we are considering this stuff. It’s useful to get that feedback as we’re going through the process.”
Joe Piepiora does not mention when we can expect the next update to happen, though chances are it’ll occur this Spring. Diablo IV is currently in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with versions for the newly released consoles likely to be announced at a later date.
