    Im sure that D4 has a big team behind it right now, but saying that the last 15% of the companies devs are working on WoW Classic, WoW BFA, WoW Shadowlands, WoW next expansion, D3, Overwatch (2), Hearthstone, hots + other unannounced projects is kinda ridiculous :)

    So no, I dont think that true or accurate at all.


    I also don't beleive that D4 is the only thing that can save Blizzard from certain doom - I don't beleive that Blizzard is in that kind of trouble at all :)


    Where are you getting this info from (biggest dev team, rumored release schedule etc) - I would love to see it :)

    most of their current games either dead or dying


    They are all-in with Diablo 4. Right now more than 85% of their programmers work on that title. If Diablo 4 fails there will be no more Blizzard as we know it. This means two things:

    - Their development on the game goes with great speed

    - They'll try to release D4 as fast as possible to make up for lost profits from other games and failed projects


    And Covid-19 while slowing down their development would increase their sales.


    We are getting the D4 BETA after next Blizzcon for sure.

    76,78% of all statistics are made up on the spot :)

    I think we do need to know the endgame systems way before launch - asap imo, so we can provide feedback. Worst case senario (imo) is only 1 endgame system, like we have in D3 - thats what makes every season dull for me after about 2 weeks.


    With D3 beta we did only get up to skeleton king in act 1 yes - that was to protect the story - mind you, advendture mode didn't come with launch - I would think (hope) they have learned from this come D4.

    I expect a beta, detached from story mode, so we can propperly test systems, skills, modifiers etc.


    In many ways, I hope Blizzard is taking some insperation from PoE - I dont mean to make every aspect of the game overly complicated, but there is alot to do in PoE, and that is (imo) the biggest downside of current D3.

    They have in no way given us a "shit ton" of info. They have shown us a very very basic talent tree, a few rune combos and introduced some new afixes.

    We have gotten 1 quarterly update so far that was about monster families.

    I hope you are right that we will all be playing d4 in 2021, I just don't think it's going to happen.


    I am really looking forward to the next update and hope it is about actual game systems and or endgame.




    They've given us tons of gameplay footage, extensive info on how the new talent system will work and look, most of the new features and even item affixes. What info exactly are you looking for? Because short of giving us a literal list of every item/affix/skill/boss in the game, they've given us 80% or more of everything were going to see at launch. PVP, open world, gameplay, 3/5 classes, talent trees, affix items, monster families. they've given us all of that and will probably drop a bunch more in a couple weeks.

    And them giving us every tiny detail about the gameplay isn't the end-all be-all indicator of wither the game will be released sooner or later. But If anything, the amount of info they've given us indicates a sooner release, not a later one. If there's a delay, they'll mention it at the develop update at the end of this month, otherwise stay positive my friend. The company doesn't have a great track record, but i have a good feeling about D4's development team. Perhaps you're right and a more realistic date is around Q2-3 of 2022. with 2023 being absolute worst case scenario if lots of sh*t goes wrong like with D3's development.

    I guess I am really waiting for endgame systems, the last 2 classes, indepth talents, skills, modifiers etc.

    As I said, I hope you are right :-), it's pretty much the only game I am waiting for, nothing else seems to be able the scratch that itch, besides the 2-3 weeks of every season in d3.

    In my opinion, Blizzard will not rush D4, A lot is at stake, basically, the entire future of the franchise, sure there will always be fans of the games, but if Blizz wants long term (shows, movies ect.) they need this to succeed.



    Of course, and they aren't rushing it. They've been developing D4 for quite awhile now. I'm predicting that if there aren't any major problems from now until release, it'll definitely come out Q4 2021 or soon after. They don't have to worry about people liking D4, everyone already does with the new changes i listed. They only really have to worry about major bugs at this point.

    IMHO - 2022 or 2023.

    People already likes D4? We know pretty much nothing about the game - we have an awesome trailer, a very little ingame video, but other than that, we more or less know nothing, no systems have been revealed, no endgame (apart from d4 mythic+ very loosly explained).


    I think the game is quite faraway at this point and I think (hope) blizz is taking their time with this one.

    posted a message on D4, what features would you like to see?

    While i would LOVE to see addon support in D4 (really think it is one of the features that keeps WoW somewhat fresh), I don't think it is going to happen :(


    I ma personally hoping for some deep endgame features, would it be "raid like" content, crafting, pvp etc. I am hoping for alot of endgame systems, not just rifts and greater rifts - personally a season in D3 lasts about 1-2 weeks for me, then I'm off untill next season. Would be awesome if there would be enought content on release to last about 6-12 months and after that, season content for about 2 months pr. season.

    posted a message on Diablo S20 start date? (any input appreciated)

    Hmm, I would think somewhere between 3 og 5 weeks from now, but it is impossible to say for sure. I would wait for an official announcement before booking time off work.

    Quote from Dropz»

    First of, they said it is releasing for ps4 and Xbox one (probably will be out on next generation consoles, but they did not say that).


    Second, they have not said anything about crossplay, pretty sure they said it is on their wish list or something like that, but as of now, it is not a supported feature in d4.


    I will be on pc aswell, never got into console gaming.



    If D4 is releasing a year or more AFTER the new consoles come out, there’s a 200% chance it’s being released on them. And consoles are... computers... just with a very simple operating system, it would be incredibly easy to cross-play between any PC and any console, which they said they want to do. Not sure why you even mentioned these things lol. But go team PC!

    Just stating facts :-) I'm sure they will be out on next-gen consoles, but it's just not what is announced at this time.


    Regarding crossplay, I wouldn't count on it, as far as I am aware, there is one game that supports this (modern warfare), and since it is not an announced feature, I just don't see them using time to implement it. Maybe in a future expansion or big patch, but I not counting on it for launch.

    posted a message on Diablo 4 system requirements?

    I'm running a i7 4790k with a gtx 970 atm, so yeah, I think I will have upgraded before the end of time when d4 releases :-D

    I think minimum requirements of a Gen9 Intel processor is way over to the top. Don't even think it will be a Gen9 processor for the recommended specs.

    Gpu wise I think you are over the top aswell, blizzard is very good at making games that run good on potato powered pc's.

    My guess is late 2021 - don't really have any facts or anything (nobody does at this point) behind my guess - it is just that - my guess :)
