A new Diablo project is in the works; so is season 4

    
38

Let’s kick off your day with a big cup of Diablo news, shall we? Our first sip involves an art director job posting on Blizzard that indicates that the studio is working on a new, unannounced Diablo project. According to the posting, “a passion for games with a deep understanding of the Diablo franchise” is a plus for any applicant.

Take another sip with a first look at the upcoming season 4 for Diablo III. Season 4 will be coming with Patch 2.3.0 and will contain a season journey interface and plenty of new legendary items, achievements, conquests, and rewards. The new season will kick off on August 28th.

Finally, blow on the cup to cool off this news: A fan project is underway to recreate the first Diablo as a cross-platform title. Called Freeablo, the game is still in a very rough state and requires the original Diablo files to function.

Smiggins orionite fangGWJ Yes, which is why I would not be thrilled if Diablo 4 goes the MMO route.

ityere I’d honestly recommend skipping the first game. It’s aged VERY poorly, and the plot is so minimal that you don’t really miss anything by just starting at the second game.

Muspel Smiggins That seems a very good guess. However, it would be a little disheartening.

Smiggins Might be a Diablo-themed expansion for Hearthstone.

My guess, something for the casual crowd. A mobile game wouldnt surprise me.

orionite fangGWJ You could say that for any game. “To me MMORPG means team-gated content, drops optimized for trading, bla bla bla…”

Oh, please please let it be an MMORPG a la WoW.  I’m willing to let it suck my life away for another decade of awesome Blizz MMORPG craze.  Throw Starcraft MMORPG in there as well and I might just not survive lol.

Diablo is another series that I still have to play the first. Hope to have the time to play all them in the future.

Armsbend orionite fangGWJ d3 was very much less self found viable in its first year.  The auction house was a big part of it but not the only part.  They have taken great steps to reverse that course direction in sequential patches.
