According to Kotaku, Diablo 4 is in development, and Blizzard recorded a video where co-founder Allen Adham talks about a new Diablo projects. Blizzard maintains that it had never meant to talk about Diablo 4 at BlizzCon and that no announcements were pulled from the show.
As well as "Diablo Immortal", a mobile version of classic action franchise "Diablo", video game developer Blizzard announced new content for "Overwatch", "Hearthstone" and "Warcraft" at Blizzcon 2018, while "Destiny 2" goes free until November 18.
The comment came after the same Kotaku published a story that said Blizzard had recorded a Diablo 4 presentation video featuring co-founder Allen Adham, with the objective of showing it at BlizzCon. "We had originally reported that it was planned for BlizzCon, but it's possible that those plans were simply discussed and never solidified".
In a statement, the studio said: "First off we want to mention that we definitely hear our community". Although that ended up being misinterpreted by fans anyway, so Blizzard may not find any peace now until Diablo 4 is properly announced.
Despite asking fans to reel in their expectations for Diablo-related news at BlizzCon 2018, it turns out the company had plans to tease the development of Diablo 4 anyway.
Truck slams into cars waiting at toll station in China; 15 killed
China's state-run news agency says at least 14 people have been killed in a highway pile-up in the northwestern province of Gansu. Officials said another 44 people were injured in the pile-up at the toll station which is close to Lanzhou, capital of Gansu .
Blizzard reportedly changed their BlizzCon announcement plans for Diablo within the past couple of weeks, as they wrote on a Blizzard forum in October their plans for announcing Diablo projects, "When the time is right".
Blizzard has been attempting damage control since the Diablo Immortal announcement hit the web, so at this point, it is hard to lean one way or the other. "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".
Launched in May 2012, Diablo 3 hasn't seen any new content since 2017, although it's just been made available on the Nintendo Switch, so there's that.
Diablo Immortal was the only Diablo announcement at BlizzCon, and to put it mildly, many fans have responded negatively.
