Blizzard Disputes Claim that Diablo 4 BlizzCon 2018 Announcement Was Planned

Diablo 2 Remastered May Be Announced at Blizz Con 2018 Report

While another called it an "absolute slap in the face of all the fans who stuck with blizzard through the mess that was diablo 3, hoping that we'd finally get a good diablo game".

If Blizzard had shared a teaser for Diablo 4 at BlizzCon, even a wafer-thin one like a GIF of a flaming "4", Diablo Immortal's reception may have been more positive.

After the fallout of the Blizzard Immortal announcement, it is now being reported that Blizzard were set to close the show with a Diablo 4 reveal.

According to a Kotaku report, Blizzard was supposed to use the mobile game's reveal as a launchpad for its first official Diablo 4 tease, but that was scrapped at the last minute. Whether or not this video was planned to be shown at BlizzCon is in question, but Blizzard said in a statement that it "didn't pull any announcements from BlizzCon this year or have plans for other announcements".

Diablo fans could've had a completely different reaction had the original plan gone through at BlizzCon.

Despite asking fans to reel in their expectations for Diablo-related news at BlizzCon 2018, it turns out the company had plans to tease the development of Diablo 4 anyway.

Activision Blizzard representatives didn't immediately respond to voicemails seeking comment. His investigation turned up information that stated a video was recorded in which Blizzard Co-Founder Allen Adham spoke to fans about a new Diablo project. "These are very exciting times-we now have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can't wait to tell you all about them. when the time is right", the company said.

Furthermore, Blizzard has learned tremendously from Diablo III's launch woes and has also learned how to properly monetize its live service games for the long run.

At the same time, though, Diablo Immortal will not affect Diablo IV's development in any way. Although that ended up being misinterpreted by fans anyway, so Blizzard may not find any peace now until Diablo 4 is properly announced. One of them is the game that fans are waiting for, and it was almost announced last week.
