In a video recently shared to Diablo‘s twitter page, Blizzard has shared some new information on the future of the franchise. While nothing specific was confirmed in the minute-long video, and it mainly discussed the use of themes in future seasons of Diablo III, we did at least get confirmation that multiple Diablo-related things are in development.
Blizzard’s video, featuring community manager Brandy Camel (also known as ‘Nevalistis’) first went over the theme for Diablo III‘s Season 14. “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,” Camel said. “The Season of Greed is our first Themed Season and we plan to explore additional themes in the future.”
From there, a hint of Blizzard’s future plans for the Diablo series was revealed. “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,” Camel added. “We hope you stay tuned, while we work to bring these Diablo experiences to life.”
Beyond that, it’s clear Blizzard isn’t quite ready to clue in fans to exactly what they’re working on. The last time we got a hint was through the company’s job listings back in June, when several positions working on an “unannounced Diablo projects” were posted. While there’s no official news on what these “multiple projects” might be, popular theories include Diablo 4, a remastered version of Diablo 2, or perhaps an expansion for Diablo 3.
Regardless, with Blizzard’s tentative promise to show Diablo fans some things later this year, a good bet for Diablo-related reveals is BlizzCon 2018. This year’s Blizzard convention runs from Friday, November 2 to Sunday, November 4; if we don’t hear anything in the meantime, we’ll be waiting to see if BlizzCon yields any more Diablo information.
