Diablo 4 is (almost certainly) about to be announced.
I've been thinking about the lessons Diablo 3 teaches us in terms of going forward with Diablo 4.
Blizzard talks about continued support for Diablo 3, but what does it mean for the future of the franchise?
Sometimes, when you're dealing with Blizzard, it's as much about what they don't say as what they do say.
Diablo 4 is almost assuredly on its way.
I've argued in the past that we should get a Diablo 3 expansion.
Okay, I know what you're going to say.
The question is simple: is Blizzard going to reveal Diablo 4 this BlizzCon?
As is the case with any rumor, you can't be sure, but Kotaku has posted an article stating that various Blizzard sources have spoken to them off the record about the cancellation of an in-house StarCraft FPS game along the lines of the Battlefield series, in order to focus on both the Overwatch and Diablo franchises, which will be the big focuses of this year's BlizzCon.
I'm not saying there will be a new class, because I'd sooner expect a Diablo 4 announcement than a Diablo 3 expansion announcement.
