Rumor: Diablo 4 Announcement Coming at Blizzcon 2016

diablo iii 02-03-16-1.

A wild new rumor has Diablo fans speculating that a new game within the action RPG series is coming.

The news comes from a strange new die that came in a BlizzCon promo pack. What first tipped people off was the inclusion of the four-sided die, or D4 for short.

This die also has the wrong numbers on it. Instead of three number one’s featured at the bottom of three sides of the die, there are two one’s and a single four. That string of numbers is 114, or November 4th – the start of Blizzcon 2016.

Coincidence? Ridiculous tinfoil theories? Sound off in the comments below!

    Maybe it’s for the best.While D3 is not as bad as many people claim this should never be said about a Diablo game.Not after Diablo 2.
    Also,fuck Diablo,give us Warcraft 4.

    The first step to making a great Diablo game is removing the fucking always-online DRM.

    The last step is playing Path of Exile/Torchlight/Grim Dawn

    PoE is the best in the genre right now.But since Blizz usually borrows ideas from all over the place I would not be surprised if they copied PoE.And nobody could cry foul at this because PoE borrowed a lot from D2.

    People are complaining about many things here.If the game was as good as it should’ve been then online drm would be a minor complaint.At this point it’s getting trashed by a free game simply because PoE looks and play a lot like Diablo 2.

    With the recent David Brevik tweets too, “I want to believe”, but I am not getting my hopes up. If a Diablo 4/refresh does get announced though the Blizzard development team would have its work cut out for them when completing against Grinding Gear Games. PoE as of right now is the vastly superior ARPG and only has been getting better with every patch it receives.

    Auction House 2.0.
    Actually I wouldn’t put it past them to come up with “SC2 Macro Mechanics 2.0” and give us an equivalent of “spawn larvae” in Diablo for some asinine reason, it seems like the kind of un-fun thing they’d do these days.

    Because it did not have these massive problems when the most people could not play the game they paid for because lots of server problems at launch and the following weeks. + it is free.

    And maybe the better game.
