BlizzCon is Blizzard's annual gaming convention
It features news from its franchises like Diablo and Warcraft
Diablo 3 for the Switch is out on November 2
Diablo 4 or whatever Blizzard plans to call its successor to Diablo 3 won't be at BlizzCon 2018 - Blizzard's annual convention for games like Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Diablo. The action role-playing series makes its Nintendo Switch debut next month in the form of the Diablo 3: Eternal Collection and there's a Netflix series that's reportedly in the works as well. However if you were expecting a brand new Diablo game, you may want to temper your expectations. Though the company claims that there are "multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can't wait to tell you all about them ... when the time is right."
"We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that 'good things come to those who wait,' but evil things often take longer," a prepared statement from Blizzard reads. "We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror. While we won't be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show."
BlizzCon 2018 is from November 2 to November 4, with Diablo 3: Eternal Collection for the Switch out on November 2, the first day of the convention.
Previously it was revealed that Diablo 3: Eternal Collection for the Nintendo Switch is getting the special edition treatment from Nintendo with the Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle. It contains the Nintendo Switch console and dock, both sporting Diablo 3 art, a Diablo 3-themed carry case, and a download code for the game. The Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle price is $360 (around Rs. 26,550) and has a release date of November 2, the same day the game is out. It will be available in Europe and the US. In the US it's exclusive to GameStop.
