BlizzCon 2016 Diablo tracking thread has started

BlizzCon DiabloThis week I have read all kinds of garbage about BlizzCon and what might be in store for Diablo. Everything from Diablo 4 will be announced, “my friend told me Diablo 4 will be announced”, or “I have a source”.

Yes, the rumour mill is in full spin and numerous sites have been joining in with all kinds of wild speculation and headlines. Clickbait it’s called.

The general consensus is we’ll either hear of a new game, which may or may not be Diablo 4, or that Diablo 2 HD remaster that I know many of you would love to see happen. The final option is nothing at all which would not be good news for the franchise.

Right now we have no real information to go on and everything is considered a rumour. The community has been speculating about what’s happening at Blizzard for a while in this thread which kicked off back in March prompted by job listings.

We now have a BlizzCon 2016 info and tracking thread in the forums which has just kicked off with useful links and of course community comments. Feel free to add anything you spot or want to share in that thread which we’ll be keeping a close eye on prior to and during BlizzCon.

  1. Expectations are dirt low.

    People saying nonsense about D4 are just looking for a minute of fame with their peers so they can say “see!!”. But they know that if they’re wrong, it doesn’t matter because no one gives a shit, because everyone else is expecting nothing.

    If they do announce something new, though, who’s really going to be super excited? We’re all going to go, “woo”, and then pick apart all the information so we can flood the forums to stop the travesty that is a Diablo Death Racing game. Because Blizzard doesn’t have a racing game yet. So why not make it a ‘Diablo’ racing game.

    • Actually, Rock n Roll Racing is a Blizzard game

      • Ah, the glorious cartridge days … 😉
        When games couldn’t be released half-ready and then patched to 80% status over the course of three years, while simply being marketed as meticulously polished.

  2. I’m hoping for something other than any diablo 3 related stuff.
    Diablo 3 was a big disappointment.
    Never bought another blizzard game since.
    I was considering overwatch, but then Paladins came out 😀

  3. The last time I was hopeful was pre-D3 launch. My hunch these days is that Blizzard doesn’t include Diablo in their road-map. In other words, I wouldn’t be surprised if they spoke of the franchise at Blizzcon… I’d be utterly shocked.

  4. I’m still mulling over, “Diablo fans are going to lose their ****” come BlizzCon 2016”. That quote piqued my interest months ago.

  5. As long as it is not Diablo2 HD. It was fun then and I’ve done thousands of Baalruns but its time for either more D3 or something new. I’m guessing a mini (digital only) expansion might be the thing we can expect the most.

  6. Diablo 2 for the iPad

  7. If talking about something new (and even new for Blizzard) – I’d love to see new-XCom2-like Diablo. The only problem with this “new” – is that it hardly can be a multiplayer game, at least, coop one 🙁

  8. Anyone here watch CarbotAnimations on Youtube? He says he has some inside information 😉
