Fergusson: Hey, everyone. I’m Rod Ferguson, executive producer for the Diablo Franchise, and welcome to the Diablo Q&A. I’m joined today by three of my favorite Diablo designers. We have Luis Barriga, who has forbade me to roll my R’s when trying to say his name. I feel really bad about myself, but he’s the Game Director for Diablo 4.
We have Wyatt Chang, who is the Lead Designer for Diablo Immortal; and Rob Gallerani who is the Principal Designer for Vicarious Visions who works on Diablo II: Resurrected.
Right off the bat. This is bordering between wild speculation and a longshot.
The BlizzConline schedule seems to only have room for two Diablo games on Day 1. It could be Diablo 4 and Diablo Immortal. Or it could be Diablo 4 and D2R announcement — leaving Diablo Immortal out as Blizzard did in BlizzCon 2019.
Blizzard Entertainment has announced the official dates for the BlizzCon 2021 Online event. Sadly, none of the juicy stuff was added to the revealed schedule. Only the special community events. All we can do is guess: Diablo 4? Overwatch 2? World of Warcraft Classic: What’s Next? Diablo Immortal?
We won’t know until Blizzard decides to share a more comprehensive schedule.
