Diablo 4 development over at Blizzard seems to be going down pretty well, at least according to a tidbit from Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier. Schreier took to Twitter earlier this week to talk about an ongoing Diablo 4 playtest, even if those taking part are under NDA.
Because of that NDA, we don't get too many details here. Even so, it seems as though things are progressing nicely with Diablo 4 development, with the reporter saying that's he heard 'mostly positive buzz' about the playtest.
That's just as well, because Blizzard could do with a Diablo home run this time out. Diablo 2 Resurrected had more than its fair share of issues around launch and beyond, and mobile spin-off Diablo Immortal didn't land so hot with folks either.
We're hoping 4 sticks its landing a little better. By the time it launches, the Xbox & ActiBlizz deal could be wrapped up, making Diablo 4 a potential first party Xbox release when it arrives in 2023.
Are you hyped for Blizzard to finally return to Diablo? Let us know in the comments!
Game looked dope as hell. Hope that Acti-Blizz deal completes before release so it drops into Game Pass. Definitely trying this one out!
Good. Really looking forward to this.
Between having Paladin equivalent and how awful Diablo 3 was, this is gonna a pass from me.
Maybe they'll do an expansion later on down the line with a Paladin I'll check it out.
As is, Diablo 2 Resurrected is giving me that Diablo fix that mess Diablo 3 could never scratch.
@InterceptorAlpha My favorite class is the Crusader and the expansion it launched in Diablo 3 I thought was pretty good. Overall Diablo 3 is not to bad for me enjoyed it with my friends.
We have been playing a lot of 2 and the class I play is Paladin right now I am working on a FoH build
Eagerly looking forward to the release of Diablo 4! I hope the release is better than Diablo 2 with the graphics being reduced to 640X480 until the Hellfire expansion upped the graphics to 800x600. It was very disappointing, until the expansion fixed the graphics. Diablo 3 just seemed kind of cartoony-like to me, even the expansion seemed like it too.
@J_Mo_Money I'm not sure where I read it, but I think I saw that Diablo IV wouldn't be coming out on Game Pass, even if merger happened.
Looking at the state of Blizzard these days, I'll take that with a grain of salt.
@stephenratliff in fairness those were the resolutions to be expected when the game released. LOD as an awesome game. Diablo 3 was meh, and immortal an embarrassing money grab… 4 hmm. They have a lot to make up for in 3 and Immortal.
@Hexamex-Tex Mea Culpa. I meant Lord of Destruction expansion to Diablo 2, not the unauthorized Diablo expansion Hellfire. The LoD expansion upped the resolution to 800x600. Anywho, not a biggie.
