Now Playing: Blizzard Has Multiple Diablo Projects In The Works - GS News Update

Blizzard has released a statement to let fans know not to expect a major Diablo announcement at BlizzCon in November. Writing on its website, Blizzard said it's aware of the "rumours flying around" about Blizzard's plans for Diablo at BlizzCon, but a new game announcement may not be one of them. The studio re-affirmed that it is working on multiple different new Diablo projects, but in typical Blizzard form, the developer said it won't talk about them until "the time is right."

"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," Blizzard said. "We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror."

There will be some "Diablo-related news" at BlizzCon, but it apparently won't be a new game reveal. Blizzard is holding a panel called "Diablo: What's Next," and this is apparently where Blizzard make whatever announcements about Diablo that it has planned.

Something new called Diablo: Reign of Terror was recently leaked by way of the official Blizzard merchandise store. We still don't know what it is, but it could be one of Blizzard's announcements at BlizzCon. A new Diablo TV show for Netflix is reportedly in development, and if an announcement is coming soon, BlizzCon could be the place for it to finally be unveiled.

As for what we absolutely know is happening, Diablo III launches for Nintendo Switch on November 2, which is the first day of BlizzCon. What kind of announcements about Diablo are you hoping to see at BlizzCon? Let us know in the comments below!

That isn't what they said. What aclick bait article. They said that they would share news on some of the Diablo projects that they are working on, but not all of them yet.

@XBgyManX: How typical. Gamespot really has dovetailed hard these past few years.

And here I thought Diablo would actually have something good this year, seeing as how the past two years it has gotten shafted at Blizzcon.
