Given Blizzards history, it's likely one of whatever is popular these days with the kids like a Diablo clash of clans, candy crush or angry birds or something.

I'd be really suprised for Diablo 4 this soon.

I could be wrong. Hell in some ways I'd like to be, I'd love to see the current Diablo team given a crack at a new release rather than having to spend 1-2 years undoing the fucking abortion that was Jay Wilson+Friend's Diablo 3.

I'm just very unconvinced it's happening. I'd expect, if anything, a Diablo-based 3rd person Action Adventure for both PC/Consoles.

Watch it be a flash/mobile spin-off game.

Yeah, pretty much this.

In fairness, slapping "to our new expansion pack!" would pretty much confirm it. They're not going to do that this early.

I wouldn't mind Diablo 4. 3 sucks and I feel there's a lot of potential for an horror fantasy game if done right. Just not with the retarded comic book shit mentality we're having in every single Blizzard game right now.

It's too easy. My Crusader is only on yellows and I'm already soloing Torment VII no problem.

Still fun though.

Diablo themed civ clone for mobiles? Premise being Nephalem being gods/patron saints guiding their own little villages, cities, and empires?

2 important devs, Yang and Dovu, recently moved from the Diablo team to WoW. They were mostly involved in Legendary item design.

Also, the head of world design left Blizzard for Obsidian.

At the same time Blizzard is hiring for multiple positions for a project related to Diablo that all sound like extremely early development stages, from possibly a new engine to early visual design work.

An expansion seems out of the question with several core devs leaving, it almost seems like D3 is going into maintenance with seasons for the foreseeable future and this might possibly be Diablo 4 instead of an expansion. Which would make sense, imo. With the RoS patches and loot 2.0 they realize they've struck a nerve and found a way to modernize Diablo with success. A new game utilizing the lessons they learned during III would have a good feel to it.

I highly doubt anything such as a different game set in the universe, such as an MMO.

Blizzard Entertainment is seeking a game director with outstanding communications skills, proven experience in creative direction, strong ability in system design, and a stellar track record of shipping AAA games to lead the Diablo series into the future.


They're looking for a director for it now.
