We may soon see the revival of an iconic franchise. A leak in the German magazine Game Star may have just spilled the existence of Diablo IV the latest entry in the dungeon crawler series.
The treacherous revelation was in an ad for Diablo art book. The book (which you can pre-order from Amazon) is said to contain " over 500 artworks from Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo III and Diablo IV".
The BlizzCon 2019, the new Diablo 4, licks in Germany.

It is not much to do, but it is enough to my little ones Encourage ears to excite. Rumors of Diablo IV seep through for some time – the most recent date from Kotaku in June, when it was reported that Diablo IV (codenamed Fenris) and Overwatch 2 ] made up the lion's share of development resources. Blizzard has allegedly removed a first-person shooter from the Starcraft universe to give more time to the two previous titles. Allegedly, Diablo II Remastered is also in circulation.
Honestly, I would not be surprised if this was the game Blizzard unveiled at the end of the BlizzCon. My goodness, the company now needs a victory if it wants to return in peace.
Last year Blizzard chose the big moment to introduce his new mobile game Diablo Immortal . Needless to say, the reaction was lukewarm as many thought the game was not big enough for such a meaningful revelation. One fan even asked if it was an April Fool (in November) during subsequent questions and answers – that was not the case. Blizzards co-founder Allen Adham implied in his response (via polygon) to the controversy that something Diablo was in the works: " We still have several Diablo teams working on it several work unannounced Diablo projects. Diablo is a Tentpole franchise for us. And it will always be like this. We love it. "
Not to mention that Blizzard is still dealing with the consequences of the Hong Kong controversy. Although it nominally eliminates chaos by shortening the ban on lightning, the player who voices his support for the protests and restores the gains he has received, his initial reaction still hangs like a cloud over the process. The company has canceled an event that celebrated the launch of Overwatch on the switch shortly after everything collapsed.
A new game – and not just a mobile game, but a real start to one of his so-called games A Tentpole series would be enough to give the company a little boost from the swamp. The BlizzCon will run from November 1st to 3rd.
