The URL ‘playdiablo4.com’ redirects to Path of Exile’s web site. Coincidentally, an alert member of ResetEra found this shortly after the BlizzCon 2018 opening ceremony, which was disappointingly gentle on information for Diablo followers.
Replies to the ERA thread are stuffed with reward for the choice dungeon crawler, and for its style stablemate Grim Dawn, so there are your copes in the event you’re in search of one thing to tide you over till Diablo 4.
Rumours of a significant Diablo announcement at this 12 months’s BlizzCon have been effervescent merrily ever since nothing of substance was introduced at BlizzCon 2017. A discussion board put up earlier than that present did recommend there can be information sooner or later, which is maybe why followers seized on a job advert for “a new, unannounced Diablo project” earlier in 2018, and particularly on the schedule for this year’s BlizzCon.
In the occasion, what we obtained was Diablo: Immortal. A brand new game, sure, however a cell game, which Blizzard has “no plans” to convey to PC, in accordance with Wowhead’s write-up of a Q&A earlier as we speak.
Reception among the many Blizzard devoted within the corridor was tepid, whereas the Diablo subreddit has been extra vocal in its hostility, with thread titles like “not even a Diablo 2 remaster”, and “Diablo on mobile is a slap in the face”. Someone at the Q&A reportedly even requested “is this an out-of-season April Fool’s joke?”
Path of Exile, a free-to-play, loot-fuelled, dungeon crawling action-RPG that clearly attracts inspiration from Diablo, has seized the second. Here’s a tweet from simply after the BlizzCon opening ceremony:
In case you missed it, we’ll be saying our 3.5.zero growth in lower than two weeks! It’s our fourth and largest growth of 2018. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been engaged on!

But Diablo followers can take coronary heart. As anticipation soared forward of BlizzCon, Blizzard printed a blog managing expectations, by which it was introduced that the studio has “multiple teams working on different Diablo projects.” Diablo: Immortal is one, and a Diablo 2 remaster can also be virtually confirmed – we simply have to attend a bit longer. In the meantime, strive going to www.playdiablo4.com for amusing.
But even with regards to a fully-fledged sequel, there’s hope. We’ll go away you with Blizzard’s phrases:
“We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that ‘good things come to those who wait,’ but evil things often take longer.”
