Wyatt Cheng, the Game Director on Diablo Immortal and former patch lead on Diablo 3 who worked on the game at the time of its release, took to Twitter to answer fan questions in an impromptu Q&A to celebrate the game's 10th anniversary, and was asked about why the team on D3 at the time chose to create the best zone in the game, Whimsyshire.
Usually the sentence, "enjoy Echoing Nightmares forever," would seem kind of ominous, and well, it still does, because it's Diablo 3's 10th Anniversary, and in celebration we're getting the popular Echoing Nightmares mode from Season 26 added permanently to the game.
Diablo 3 Season 26 started April 15, introducing a new endgame activity for the season's theme -- the Echoing Nightmare.
Diablo 3 Season 26 is currently in progress, so now we start asking the inevitable question: When can we expect the next season?
Another Diablo 3 Season has begun, with Season 26 representing the theme of Echoing Nightmare starting on April 15.
Every Diablo 3 player receives the warning, "many Nephalem have stood where you are now, but few succeeded in overcoming the trials," from Orek when learning of Greater Rifts, but the development team decided to turn it into something even more special.

Diablo 3 Season 25 ends on April 10, and now we know that the next Season will follow quickly on its heels: Season 26 begins on Friday, April 15, just five days later.
