In a recent statement, Blizzard has denied all reports and rumors stating that the original plan was to announce Diablo 4 at the end of BlizzCon 2018 instead of Diablo Immortal.
Earlier it was reported that a video was made of Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham who was discussing a new, full-scale Diablo game. Rumors were circling around that this was meant to be shown at the end of the BlizzCon and the game originally intended to be revealed was Diablo 4 and not Diablo Immortal.
However, Blizzard has responded to PC Gamer and it is now confirmed that there were no plans of Diablo 4 announcement at the end of BlizzCon. The official statement given to PC Gamer by Blizzard was
We generally don’t comment on rumors or speculation, but we can say that we didn’t pull any announcements from BlizzCon this year or have plans for other announcements. We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right.
This clearly means that Diablo 4 is not coming anytime soon however they do acknowledge that they are working on some unannounced Diablo projects which could possibly lead to remasters of classic titles or some sort of a new DLC. We will have to wait to see it.
This whole drama originally started when Blizzard announced Diablo Immortal to fans who were greatly expected news of a new Diablo game, hopefully Diablo 4 at the end of BlizzCon 2018. The news of a mobile Diablo game did not go well with the fans and they have shown their anger at the announcement over every social platform.
Diablo Immortal is coming exclusively on iOS and Android devices. The ‘pre-register’ for the Android is live on their official website and is coming soon for iOS as well. Players who want to experience the game before it comes out, they can head over to their official website and apply right now.
