BlizzCon 2018 is coming up and this year it seems that we might be getting more Diablo-related announcements compared to the previous year. Blizzard had previously confirmed that they had multiple Diablo projects in the works which we imagine we will hear about at the event, and recent speculation has even suggested that we might hear about Diablo 4.
Several BlizzCons have come and go without much Diablo news shared. However it seems that this could be the year we see some major Diablo reveal, or at least that’s what some are speculating based on the floor layout for BlizzCon 2018 where it seems to suggest that Blizzard has some big news to share.
So we know that Diablo 3 is coming out for the Nintendo Switch, that much was confirmed a couple of months ago. For those who have yet to buy a Switch and Diablo 3 is the game that has finally convinced them to, then you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has since announced the Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Bundle.
Over the weekend thanks to a leak, the name Diablo: Reign Of Terror was revealed. This has led to speculation that this could be the name of Blizzard’s next Diablo title. Unfortunately for Diablo hopefuls, that doesn’t seem to be the case as Blizzard has since put those rumors and speculation to rest.
While the Diablo franchise has largely been designed for PC gamers, Diablo 3 marked the first time the company brought the series onto consoles. However due the different online systems used by Sony and Microsoft, console players could not play with each other. However Blizzard had previously hinted that cross-play was something they were interested in.
We’ve seen how video games that are translated into movies usually don’t do so well, which is why it looks like Blizzard could be taking a different route with Diablo. In a report from Variety, it seems that a Diablo animated series is being developed over at Netflix. This was actually revealed by Boom! Studios founder Andrew “Andy” Cosby who tweeted (and deleted) that he’s in the “final talks” to […]
When Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch was officially announced, Blizzard did not mention when the game would be released, only that it would be released later this year. For those who are looking forward to its release, you’ll be pleased to learn that you won’t have to wait much longer because the game has been set for a release on the 2nd of November.
Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm is essentially an amalgamation of all of Blizzard’s franchises brought under one roof (or game). The game started out simple enough where it featured the more well-known characters from Diablo, Warcraft, and StarCraft, but over the years Blizzard has slowly started to introduce more characters that aren’t quite as prominent.
Due to the fact that the Nintendo Switch game cards are essentially memory cards, it also means that there is a finite amount of storage that comes with it.

Last week much to everyone’s delight, Blizzard confirmed that Diablo 3 would be launching on the Nintendo Switch. As to why Blizzard chose the Switch, it’s hard to ignore that one of the reasons is monetary, in which Blizzard would like to take advantage of the console’s popularity, but we’re sure that besides that, Blizzard probably had other reasons too.
Diablo 3 was confirmed for the Nintendo Switch last week and while the Switch might not pack the same powerful hardware as the PS4 Pro or Xbox One, Blizzard said that the game would run at 60fps across the board. This meant that gamers can expect 60fps whether the console is docked or undocked.
Gamescom 2018 will be kicking off in the next couple of days, and at the event we expect that there will be a bunch of new announcements and showcases from various developers and publishers. In fact Blizzard themselves are expected to make several announcements, such as new Overwatch content.
Blizzard has its own online gaming platform in the form of Battle.net, where players can play with each other and chat with each other, even if they’re playing different games.
