It has been more than seven years since Blizzard released Diablo 3. And while the third installment in the series has its own fair share of ups and downs, fans' hopes for a sequel have not faded. Given how long it has been since the last title in the franchise was released, it is safe to assume that Diablo 4 is just around the corner.

Although the studio has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of Diablo 4, it is interesting to take a look at what we know so far about this highly anticipated title. Given the different topics and statements coming from the studio, it is only a matter of time before we get to hear an official announcement.

So, without further ado, here’s what we know so far about Diablo 4.

BlizzCon 2019

As we have previously reported, Blizzard is believed to make some huge announcements at this year’s BlizzCon. These announcements will reportedly involve follow-ups of the studio’s most popular franchises, two of which are Overwatch and Diablo. BlizzCon 2019 will run from November 1 to November 3.


Reports have it that the studio has decided to stop all development relating to a StarCraft shooter. The focus is now on developing both Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2. Given the sudden shift in development, it is interesting to see what the studio has prepared in order to wow fans.

Attendance at Gamescom 2019

In case you do not remember, Blizzard was not present during Gamescom 2019. In a news post from its official site, the studio explained why they had to steer clear from the event.

"As part of a renewed effort this year to maintain our focus on development, for our current games and our future projects, we won’t have a booth at Gamescom 2019," the post reads. "The show is an important one for the European and global gaming community, and we’re going to miss meeting players in Cologne this year.

"We’re also looking forward to sharing more details about the projects we’re currently working on when the time is right."

Although the post itself does not unveil any detail pertaining to either Diablo 4 or Overwatch 2, it is likely that this announcement will find its way at BlizzCon 2019.

Diablo Immortal

When Blizzard Entertainment decided to unveil Diablo Immortal at Blizzcon 2018, everyone was surprised. Uproar eventually happened as hordes of fans did not expect a mobile version of Diablo to be developed. For a very long time, fans wanted the studio to develop and announce Diablo 4, especially when it has been more than seven years since Diablo 3’s release.

But instead of getting a new core Diablo title, the studio introduced its fans to a mobile-only touchscreen spin-off title. Of course, it did not matter whether the game proved to be good or bad – fans were hoping for a proper, PC-first numbered entry into the series. And while it is not fair to judge Immortal based on how it was received, fans believed that Blizzard made the game to draw more money from the pockets of gamers.

Blizzard denied that there was anything else ever set for an unveiling at the event, but a post to YouTube back in August seemed to have suggested otherwise. In the video, community manager Brandy "Nevalistis" Camel confirmed that there were “multiple Diablo projects in the works.”

"The forges here at Blizzard are burning hot. And we have multiple Diablo projects in the works. Some of them are going to take longer than others,” stated Camel in the video. “But we may have some things to show you later this year. We hope you stay tuned, while we work to bring these Diablo experiences to life. None of this would be possible without the support that you have shown us for over 20 years."
