I think its been since about 2016 that Diablo 4 has been going on at Blizzard, roughly since the time Josh left I suspect. That is, project Hades (Joshes project) gave way to project Fenris. From what I understand Hades was a third person game (not a true gauntlet inspired game) where as [from what I have read around the net] Fenris is isometric. Fenris [current iteration of D4] apparently does not contain most of the team behind Hades as some of them went off to work on the Necromancer expansion for D3. Basically, what I am getting to is that D4 is at best may be about 3 years into development. My best guess is that it would be a 6+ year project if they are making the entire thing (new 3D engine incl). Beyond 6 years and the expense quickly becomes astronomical as the engine begins to age before they have even made a cent back on what they have spent. Which means, microtransactions or something similar. So, say for arguments sake that they are 50% of the way to completion. Is that too early for Blizzard to announce that they are officially working on D4? Imo, looking back Blizzard announced D3 very early. They were caught looking for staff basically which lead to them feeling that they might as well take control of the situation. This time I'd be willing to bet they are relying more on headhunting or the staff they already have to build D4. Keeping projects like this from the public is a very big deal to them. I would bet that currently they would not release a single piece of info on D4 in 2019 since we [the general public] haven't really got anything on D4 that would make them feel like they need to say anything. My odds on a D4 reveal this year are about 100:1. Anyone else feel like sharing their view and odds?
