Blizzard announcing multiple Diablo projects

Post by AdiTT » Sat Aug 11, 2018 4:48 pm

It has been a while since I last posted here :) But dear Blizzard gave me a good reason to do so.

Latest announcement they made is quite curious as people speculate for a long time what could be the next step. I sure hope they don't turn my beloved RPG game into MMORPG.
But I place a (small) bet on Diablo 2 remastered version like they did with Star Craft. Which I am not really sure is the best thing to happen from mods perspective. I was wondering if you discussed such possibility and I checked around, found no topic on that.

Blizzard is a dead company to me, nonetheless I've found the comments on twitter link absolutely amusing, so much of thanks for sharing that #news :)

Glad to see you back! =D

As for the multiple projects, I guessing there will be another addition to D3 in some way, specifically due to all the seasonal stuff they are trying. There will be a next-gen Diablo project as well, probably a straight up D4, but I dunno if they'd make it an MMO, WoW has kinda killed off most of the market. I think there will also be something different, like a Diablo themed Hearthstone, or some like a Diablo dungeon builder where you have to defend against heroes. And unless they are planning to remake all the models for D2, I don't think they are actually gonna remaster it (and besides, the remastering team still needs to finish WC3 remastered), I don't think it holds enough money for them (SC:HD does due to esports, WC3 is a lot easier to remaster).

Somehow they do not fail to disappoint me every with every single release since November 13, 2008. From that date I've seen nothing even close to my expectations from such a company with legacy and name. I reckon this drastic shift is due to their change in ownership and post 2000 demanding gaming-culture trends. No one particularly to blame, just a bad luck for Blizzard in my eyes.

Money makes the world go round and for these big companies its hard to resist. So they go mainstream. As a person that plays Warcraft 3. The cinematics of WC3 are another lvl compare to the immature mainstream {filtered} blizzard makes nowadays for Wow. In today's wow, the tone, the expression, the dialogue is made for 12 year olds compare to the mature style WC3 had.
