Diablo ‘Reign of Terror’ merch in Blizz store revives speculation on Diablo IV

Set aside your French history knowledge for a sec and consider the phrase Reign of Terror in a new light: a light that also falls on Diablo merch.

That’s because, as Resetera noticed early this morning, the Blizzard gear store barfed up a bunch of new Diablo stuff, including a poster and tees bearing the “Diablo Reign of Terror” branding.

Interestingly, when I saw this pop up, I, like one of the Resetera commenters, could’ve sworn that Reign of Terror was already a Diablo expansion name, but that’s a mis-memory apparently, likely a product of the fact that these dumb words get reused for expansions all the time. As it turns out, Reign of Chaos was used for Warcraft III, and Terror’s End is the last arc of Diablo II, so maybe there’s a connection. Or maybe Blizz is just referring to how long Diablo has been a major force in video games in order to sell shirts.

Orrrrrr maybe it’s something to do with the new Diablo stuff the studio’s been teasing for the last coupla months. Diablo IV! Diablo Mobile! Diablo 1/2 remake! Diablo III expansion! Diablo MMO! Diablo Netflix series! Nobody talking really knows, but it’s getting fun to speculate on the “leaks.”

Well. Don’t have to wait that long to see what this is all about. Three weeks and counting.

I suspect this will be a close out expansion (or content patch) for D3, since Diablo is the Lord of Terror. Also, none of Blizzard’s other D games have a subtitle on their initial release so I can’t see it being D4. Surprise me, I guess… gonna snap up some 8 dollar Necromancer on Black Friday this year and put this one to bed.

EDIT: After clicking the link I see the Diablo in the poster is the old fatty version from D2, so who knows… D2 remastered?

Well the end of Reaper of Souls did have Diablo’s soul released again I think. So it’s certainly possible.

–Always online sandbox survival game!
–Convenient item shop!
–Premium classes via subscription!
–Seasonal Diablo passes for content!
–No chance I’ll get it if any of the above is true!

I just hope they announce something for D3 as a last content update. And make it something that will keep the game going till the next sequel.

Because we still play the old shit and want a proper send off and set up for the next game?
