There appeared new evidence that Blizzard is to announce its Diablo 4 in the nearest future.
When it comes to the world of fantasy, we all know that no one cuts it like the guys at Blizzard Entertainment that is so far for now. At their BlizzCon 2019, the much-awaited Diablo 4 is expected to be announced after the free spoiler Diablo Immortal game that was released last year at the BlizzCon 2018. The disappointment indicated by the many fans of Blizzard Entertainment after the game didn’t show up in Google’s Playstore or the iOS store has led many to believe that Blizzard Entertainment will do something about satisfying their fans for once.
BlizzConn2018 showed that many things are happening simultaneously at the entertainment company which they also confirmed in a blog post last year. The company said:
“These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right”.
The event which is slated for early November (November 2nd and 3rd) has already created expectations with leaks here and there that has brought many to believe that Diablo 4 is coming out as indications show it with the many leaks that have come out already. Coupled with the current happenings in Hong Kong, the entertainment company already has a lot to deal with on its plate and this shows with the various leaks coming out online in different Countries.
Firstly, the ad shown on twitter has already shown it. A Twitter [email protected] who is a subscriber to the German Gamestar magazine leaked the ad that was placed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Gamestar has already indicated that the book “The Art of Diablo” itself is coming out. On their site, the Magazine indicated that (Google-translated):
“Featuring over 500 artworks from Diablo, Diablo II, Diablo III, and Diablo IV, this book features many noteworthy artworks created for Blizzard Entertainment’s iconic action RPG, which has given generations of fans everlasting nightmares.”
Written by Blizzard’s in-house writer Robert Brooks, the ad on a normal day should have come out after the BlizzCon 2019. For the advertisement of the book to come out before is a clear sign that the much-awaited Diablo 4 should most likely be revealed at the event come November. Already, we know that the critically acclaimed Diablo 2 Remastered is also going to have a showing at the November event, as well as the Tweetverse itself, is abuzz with the news of both showings.

Being the sequel to Diablo 3, Diablo 4 is expected to come with quite a bit of new features which will certain MMO features which will allow for social interaction allegedly. This goes to show that action gaming is changing and will continue to do so ahead of the next decade.
While most fans haven’t been thrilled at the entertainment company’s approach to dealing with issues, still the way and manner in which the events have unfolded show that Blizzard Entertainment will be able to pull off a Gambit or two at this year’s event. How they intend to do that though remains yet to be seen but then again it is the BlizzCon where everything remains a mystery until the final moment.
It’s also worth mentioning that the stock of Blizzard has reacted rather positively to all this noise around. At the moment Activision Blizzard (ATVI) stock is trading at around $55 showing a +1.17% growth.
