Multiple Diablo Projects Underway, Says Blizzard
Two months ago, we reported on a Blizzard job posting confirming the development of a new Diablo project. It turns out that we were being too conservative. We now know that Blizzard is creating multiple franchise installments simultaneously.
Community manager Brandy “Nevalistis” Camel said the following in a YouTube video, which you can watch here.
“Greetings heroes, I am community manager Brandy Camel, also known as Nevalistis.
On behalf of the Diablo team, welcome back to Sanctuary for our newest season. For those of you still rocking your heroes in Reaper of Souls, you might have noticed we did something a little bit different for Season 14: Themed Seasons. The Season of Greed is our first Themed Season and we plan to explore additional themes in the future.
We’d also like to let you know that the forges here at Blizzard are burning hot. And we have multiple Diablo projects in the works. Some of them are going to take longer than others. But we may have some things to show you later this year. We hope you stay tuned, while we work to bring these Diablo experiences to life. None of this would be possible without the support that you have shown us for over 20 years.
So whether you first joined us in Diablo 3 or you are a seasoned veteran, thank you. Diablo is, and always will be, part of Blizzard’s identity, and we can’t wait for the future.”
First of all, I find it crazy that the game is already in its 14th season. It feels like just yesterday that my friends and I were discussing it as the best PC-to-console port of all time.
But more importantly, fanatics of the series can rejoice at the news. Previously, we could only speculate on the unnamed project. Some figured it would be Diablo 4, while others hoped for a Diablo 2 remake. Given the fact that Blizzard is working on numerous titles, I think it’s safe to assume both are in the works. It’s likely that a Nintendo Switch port is included in that list of projects. It could also include the previously announced Diablo comic miniseries. A Tyrael-centric game may also be in the cards, which would blow our collective minds.
What do you think the projects are? How long will we have to wait? Which title would you be most excited for? Let us know in the comments, dear gamers. We will keep you up to speed on all things Diablo as they happen. To stay up to the minute, be sure to follow DFTG on Twitter and on Facebook!
