There you have it folks, Diablo isn't being left in the dark as many have said. Those that have been paying attention already came to the conclusion that Blizzard is hard at work toiling with something dank and evil. Whether you were disappointed with Blizzcon's Necromancer showing or happy to raise the dead, this is good news all around!
It might take some time to see the fruits of their labor but we can rest assured that the Prime Evils will bring Sanctuary into the darkness once more.
i hope they dont make us wait for another 10 years, thats the main problem. its already been 4.. or 5 years? necro gonna be next year so new game at least need 1-2 years with most optimistic guess.. that makes 7 years at best. some people like me, already got bored of d3. lately i installed diablo 1 & 2 again and playing them over and over(btw, those games have real deal fun & atmosphere, i wish blizzard inspect those games again to capture real diablo feel... but i was proven wrong in past, believing that blizzard isnt stupid, so they probably do the dumbest thing to do, and continue on making a poor story driven disney version of wow in future diablo. my wishes and blizzard doesnt meet for a long time now.)
Alot more people would play diablo 3 if it went to monthly subs. We would get more xpacs and alot more patch content then we are seeing now.
We paid 40 bucks for this xpac and its 3 years old its dead, activity will go up in jan but after that it'll drop to nothing again. So that is just a money grab squeezing what little life is left of this game.
I highly doubt diablo 4 or an xpac will come anytime in the next couple years if they are looking for dev right now lol
Seems like a story creator for hero packs in a future for campaign!
So after all let down on blizzcon we still getting info/hints that it's not all, it will not be an xpack, but hero packs with story to tell for just 20 dollars? I mean this looks obvious that this job post is for Diablo 3 and related to necromancer pack...
They need to create a story or else it would be empty hero pack without nothing to tell you about and for price it should be set as high as possible with activision standards (thats why they didn't told us how much).
You would not hire a "Game Designer" for a simple Necromancer pack.
You hire game designers to streamline an entire project. This is absolutely either an expansion, Diablo 4, or a MASSIVE DLC pack that offers a new act, new story, new game systems, etc.....
I think people need to come to realize that the Diablo 3 engine has a lot of room for growth, so we very well could see Diablo 3 evolve into simply being called "Diablo" with constant DLC packs revamping it every 6 months or so! I personally would be all for that. It gives you something to look forward too. You are not just playing dead in the wind wondering if they will ever do anything new. Instead, you would know that two times a year you are going to get some form of content that is going to add more play-ability to the game.
We would all welcome that! And at the least, if it is not the D3 engine, I really believe the next game in the series is going to simply be called "Diablo" and will follow the model I shared in the paragraph above.
They are making a first person Diablo game a-la Elder Scrolls style. You will be able to pvp in first person, kill the Uber Diablo raid boss, and have Deckard Cain identify your items in beautiful 1st person 4k.
I actually think that what Unseeneel mentioned makes the most sense. A FPS Diablo game in the style of Borderlands would be really awesome.
Just to clarify, i do not mean cartoonish graphics or the humor from Boderlands(Diablo would need to be the exact opposite, dark and serious), more the fps/loothunt part should be the same, and ofc a Diablo variant would need a real form of endgame compared to the Borderlands games who dont have that.
