Don't Expect Big Diablo News At BlizzCon, Blizzard Warns

Diablo 3 Nintendo Switch Wireless Controller Pricing Release Date and Pre-Order Blizzard Sets the Record Straight on Diablo Rumors

There has been some hype surrounding Blizzard's Diablo plans this year.

The post continues to gently insinuate that a new Diablo will not be announced at Blizzccon, but that other, lesser evils await.

With Diablo 3 set to debut on the Nintendo Switch in two weeks, PowerA - the peripheral manufacturer that makes Nintendo-themed controllers - has quietly unveiled an officially licensed Diablo 3-themed wireless controller that will be available on the same day: November 2. Blizzard had to do something, as the anticipation of a new Diablo game was growing more fervent as BlizzCon approached. Not only is Diablo III coming to the Nintendo Switch, but "multiple Diablo" projects are confirmed to be in the works at Blizzard.

Since releasing the schedule for BlizzCon 2018 earlier this month, rumors of a new Diablo title and a Diablo remake have run rampant around every corner of the internet.

The company claims to be working on multiple Diablo projects but that they will take a long time to be shared publicly. Unfortunately, Blizzard has since taken steps to temper fan expectations in a statement on battle.net. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.

Blizzard explained that while the panel may not bring a game announcement as some were hoping, it's still going to have "Diablo-related news".

For the past few days, Blizzard fans got very excited about the idea of a Diablo-related announcement at BlizzCon 2018.
