In order to temper excitement for some kind of big reveal at BlizzCon this year, Blizzard has issued a statement regarding what to expect at this year’s show.
The BlizzCon schedule was an indication that Blizzard might not be sharing much Diablo news again this year and this statement below pretty much confirms that. Some news will be shared but probably nothing major. Still, a Diablo 2 remaster would be nice.
Perhaps Blizzard is tempering expectations because they will tease something major which would be sneaky. After all, they won’t want to get caught out like they were with the Diablo 3 announcement where we knew in advance they were going to announce it. We shall find out soon enough, but let’s hope there is at least something of substance and this year won’t be another complete disappointment for the Diablo community.
Best keep an eye on that Diablo panel in the schedule for any follow-up discussion after the opening ceremony.
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. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!
