Rumor: Diablo III might be heading to Nintendo Switch

    
10

Let us see if you are bright enough to crack this clue. Blizzard Entertainment sent out a tweet earlier this week in which it said “Sweet dreams” and showed a short six-second clip of Diablo’s head functioning as a light switch. A hand comes into view and turns on and off the light twice.

We’ll wait while you mull that over.

Yeah, it looks as though the studio could be working on Diablo III (or some other version of Diablo) for the Nintendo Switch. Then again, it might not. Polygon emailed the studio about it and got a reply from Blizzard saying, “We can assure you we’re not that clever. [It was] meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce.”

So is Blizzard being honest or coy here? And do you see Diablo III kicking butt on the Switch? Let us know in the comments!

I would play the $&*# out of Diablo III on the switch. That is exactly the kind of game that would fit in perfect with the switch.
Although I don’t think it is actually happening. I think the video is more of a Diablo IV reference. I really hope the switch thing is happening though, I’d get on that train in a second.

That moment when community teams can’t do anything fun anymore because it starts idiotic rumors that websites actually report on.

I was thinking how cool would it be to have grim dawn on the switch.

It would certainly make sense.

If Bethesda can keep porting Skyrim to every new system that comes along, Blizzard should be able to do it with Diablo.

Reminds me of all the Todd Howard memes from >Implying video games are fun.

Seems like a pretty good choice to put it on the Switch. Don’t really see this as something that will impact their development on the Unannounced Diablo Title though

This has been a rumor going around for a short while. Rumored release date is early 2019. They are rumored to be trying to add local play with multiple Switches.

We can assure you we’re not that clever.

Blizzard, please. The Sombra ARG had people searching for secret messages in so many places, they were trying to “decode” lossy image compression artifacts in a skydome texture.
