Diablo 4 previews its frantic family of cannibal monsters

We've not heard a heck of a lot about Diablo 4 since it was officially announced at BlizzCon last year. Blizzard have now published a development update—which they're hoping to do quarterly going forward—responding to feedback from the BlizzCon demo and introducing a nasty family of melee monsters. The update also gives a pretty in-depth look at a few pieces of Diablo 4's interface.

Diablo IV’s Barbarian looks brutal in 24 minutes of skeleton bashing

Sticks and stones may break on bones, but fists will never fail me. Now that Diablo 4 has emerged from its crypt, soaked in the blood of countless demons and undead ne'er-do-wells, we're starting to get more glimpses into the Action-RPG's grimdark fourth offering. Fitting, then, that our first extended look at the next dungeon-looter isn't some cowardly archer or wimpy wizard, but a brutal…

Diablo IV announced, looking awfully bloody

After a number of reported false starts, Blizzard were today finally ready to announce Diablo IV. Oh dear oh dear, someone's only gone and released another ancient evil, so once again it's up to us to click on monsters until their bellies burst with a blast of gold and swords. Lilith, the Daughter of Hatred, is the big nasty this time. She created the world…

A cheeky hint of Diablo IV ahead of BlizzCon

With BlizzCon less than a fortnight away, the chatterers are chattering: will this be the year Blizzard announce Diablo IV? Last year they announced the mobile spin-off Diablo Immortal at their fanorama and, well, soon insisted they were working on "multiple unannounced Diablo projects" to calm disappointed fans. Will this be the year? Blizzard are wisely keeping schtum, but Diablo IV is mentioned by an…

Blizzard are on their second crack at Diablo 4, claims report

The game we expect to be Diablo IV was once looking like a Dark Souls-ish over-the-shoulder affair, according to sources speaking to Kotaku, though that plan was dropped a few years back. The report says it's currently going isometric with a Diablo II-ish gritty look, but this too may change and... you get the picture. Supposedly that's why Blizzard didn't talk about Diablo IV at…

Diablo 4’s early unveiling reportedly axed from BlizzCon

There's still a little oil left to be thrown onto the burning inferno of Diablo Immortal hot takes. According to Kotaku's sources - "two people familiar with Blizzard's plans" - there were plans to quietly announce Diablo 4 at the show, but the studio opted not to as there wasn't much to show so soon into production. For whatever reason, Blizzard decided to run purely with…

Blizzard repeat they’re working on ‘multiple unannounced Diablo projects’

Blizzard have repeated that they have multiple teams work on multiple Diablo things, keeping hope alive for Diablo IV, following Friday's announcement of unexciting mobile game Diablo Immortal. Blizzard had warned beforehand that they weren't ready to talk about all their Diablo projects and that BlizzCon's Diablo news would not be "what many of you are hoping for", and indeed it was not. I don't…

BlizzCon’s Diablo announcement was a mobile game, not Diablo 4 (obvs)

Ahead of BlizzCon, Blizzard had hinted that they were announcing something Diablo-related but clarified it would not be "what many of you are hoping for". Yeah, but they would say it wasn't Diablo 4 even if it was going to be Diablo 4, wouldn't they? Reader, it was not Diablo 4. Blizzard last night announced Diablo Immortal, a new entry in the action-RPG series... for…
