    Diablo IV?

    I just did a google search on D4, and it seems I found this:

    http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/2008/08/13/blizzard-has-plans-for-diablo-4/1

    I thought the story was going to end with DIII, but Jay Wilson states in this that they have 'plans beyond'. This would be hugely anticipated but we are talking up to another 10 years perhaps. It's way too early to be thinking about a new Diablo game.

    Heh, maybe a little bit early. Just a bit. It's always good to know you've got one more thing to look forward to in 2020.

    Re: Diablo IV?

    I did have a prediction for that.

    A new letter from Blizzard


    Blizzard announcement 2025:

    Blizzard is proud to announce the 4th title in the ever popular Diablo series. After reviewing the popularity of the Necromancer class and botting, we are pleased to announce some new mechanics and a couple of the classes for our currently in progress title.

    Let's start with the returning classes.

    The first, of course, is the return of the necromancer class. We're sorry we ever got rid of it. We do have the skill trees available for the new necromancer class. They are the Skeleton tree, the Zombie tree, and the Hahaha, you're not really going to use this tree. The skeleton tree will be featuring the return of loved spells, skeleton, and skeleton mage, and a few new spells, skeleton amazon and the skeleton barbarian. The necromancer will also have a new spell called eboner. This is a high level that does double damage to players and triple damage to players in hardcore. The damage type is bone damage which is one of the few that will not have a resistance available.

    The assassin is the second returning class. The shadow master has now been retooled so that you can have up to 5 of them at once. Each shadow master can now also cast shadow warrior at level 5 proficiency allowing them up to 2 of their own shadow warriors each.

    New classes.

    The mercenary captain. He can hire mercenaries through the town mercenary captain at a 75% discount. We don't have the trees finalized yet, but we can share with you you're favorite new ability this character brings to the table. The boss run spell. Using this spell on any dungeon less than 5 floors away from the boss, will summon a knight fills up the remaining floors with hammers, killing all enemies and filtering the xp to you. The spell then summons a Sorcerer who casts a teleport spell on you, sending you to the boss room, where the boss will already be at 5% health from all the hammers.

    The warlock. Much like the Warlock from one of our other very popular titles we're not allowed to mention any more, this one will be a summoner of demons. At the lowest levels, it will be able to summon a Fallen shaman, who will resurrect any fallen type demon and put them in your army.

    New mechanics.

    The mercenary mechanic will be getting a huge overhaul. Some of the things you'll be seeing is, the ability to higher more than one merc. The ability to gear up your merc, much like in Diablo II. The paladin and druid classes will be making a return as available merc hirelings complete with hammer spell for the paladin and up to 3 wolves per druid hired.

    We'll keep updates on this exciting new title annually, so be sure to keep an eye on the web site daily.

    Yes he did, but I can't wait to try the eboner spell. Got to get that maxed out, especially on my hardcore chars.

    "plans beyond" could mean xpacs. i think everyone expects both xpacs and diablo 4 (eventually. i will probably ge a grandfather) so no ground breaking news for sure

    No, you are just amazingly terrible at writing anything remotely comedic in nature.
    Sure i got the references, but i mean honestly, that was just god awful parody.

    Yes and it's going to be legen -.... wait for it...and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY!

    I'm also fairly sure that by plans beyond they mean expansions, sounds like the most logical thing to have at least one expansion with hopefully an old D2 class :D *gets ready for people to start complaining*

    Re: Diablo IV?

    I'm expecting at least 2 expansions. Because Starcraft 2 is getting 2 expansions and if Diablo 3 doesn't that's just not fair :p

    I really don't see this as a surprise. I remember hearing that they talked of starting D3 development way back since before D2: LoD was even released yet.
