    Their cash cow might be on life support in 5 years when they release their next gen VR MMO. It could very well be Diablo related and this could very well be the long project they are talking in the last blue post. Can you imagine the noise from the audience if they don't announce D4 this year and instead open with a D3/D2 HD cinematic? They will do worse impression to their show than La La Land best movie award has done to the Oscars - if they don't announce D4 this year they are trolling not only us - this time they are trolling THEMSELVES too, which is costly and they are greedy - a very illogical combination. That said an MMO is not impossible to be in the works atm and the last blue post to be related to it.

    diablo is too niche to be a successful mmo after the warcraft mmo ends (which we will see in ten years or even much much later). VR will never gain any attention, it just doesn't add anything besides a big fat price tag.

    Quote from Mob Dylan»

    Blizzcon 2018 Opening Ceremony:


    Sean Murray comes on stage to announce that Blizzard sold the Diablo IP to his company; Hello Games


    Sean then goes on to explain that his vision for the franchise will include procedural dungeons, monsters, loot, and of course planets (he calls them Realms of Hell, but they are basically planets).


    When asked what the difference would be between that and D3? Sean shrugs and says, "Over promise and under deliver boys", then walks off stage.


    Jay Wilson then runs on stage and starts beatboxing the theme to, "The Price is Right!" before jumping into the crowd and hammer fisting everyone in the face.


    All is well in world.

    checks out.


    also, you all please stop with a diablo mmo. blizzard wouldn't promote this franchise to be their cash cow killer.

    rumors are fake news, nothing going on really. lets hope for blizzcon, 2 years of no news are enough, we just need someone on blizzcon to come out and say we are working on something, even if they have nothing to actually show us.


    I think this will be the case with everything that has been happening hiring-wise and with how they phrased stuff at last year's con. Announce something with maybe a teaser.
    yes, but diablo did get the shaft at blizzcon last year. it was anniversary year. they should have announced the follow-up, be it successor, expansion or 3.0 for example. their behaviour against their own top franchise really hurt me as someone who got hooked with D1.

    Having no items in the digital deluxe / collectors edition for Battle for Azeroth has me thinking there will be no updates or anything for D3.


    It could mean they are hiding the Diablo goodies to avoid spoilers.
    battle for azeroth releases two and a half months before blizzcon. diablo won't get anything really newsworthy there and the only people communicating might be the social media team. well, they try to establish the image of someone from blizzard who can write stuff about diablo.
    face it, this game is still dying a slow, painful death.

    posted a message on Diablo 1 with the HD mod is one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had

    this is the same as that d2 mod. and all they do is pump some nerd's fantasies by enabling characters to launch a thousand projectiles to combat foes which launch another thousand projectiles. it has nothing to do with the creepy dungeon crawling we used to play back in '96.


    it just doesn't have any appeal and just lacks creativity. pass after seeing the trailer.

    don‘t expect to be understood here. most of the last 100 diablo 3 players seem to be here and would never accept the state of the game.

    posted a message on EU Challenge 36 impossible?
    Quote from Bagstone»

    "Being neglected"? This is the 36th challenge rift and the first one where the chosen clear is really one of the top clears. This was a request by the community for a long time ("make challenge rifts really challenging"). I think realizing an idea brought forward by the community is the opposite of "neglecting". But that's just me :)

    also: turning one minor request for one minor sub-feature in one mediocre feature of a dead game in maintenance mode isn't a prime example for "we listen!!1". it is more or less one lucky catch, extremely hard for most people from what i've heard.

    yep, nothing. no achievement, portrait frame or anything.

    Quote from GoatKiller»

    Ok everybody calm their tits. They said there wasn't going to be any new announcements at Blizzcon like a month ago. Still plenty of stuff to do in the upcoming season with all the old builds coming back. Bored with seasons? Go play HC. Still bored? Go play other games and come back when they add something new. Whats the big deal?!

    the big deal is, that they have a house convention and a 20 year anniversary of the franchise. you either time your schedules to accomodate the con to be able to feature d3:x2 or d4 or you at least try to add some content and works or celebration in some way. you don't just go through your WHOLE portfolio and leave ONE game completely out.
    and sorry, to cop out and say "we have nothing to offer this year" doesn't make it right or does the franchise any justice. they really have only a skeleton crew working on d3 at the moment, they could really just admit that.
