Diablo IV hype thread! (And game-time thread if it's released in this century?)

Looks like Blizzard will post updates here:

And the general game page is here:
http://diablo.blizzard.com/
(With a general link like that, I expect it to be broken by 2021 — currently 2019, for reference)

..and as I mentioned in thread "#UGTwit107", "People keep bringing up the Hong Kong issue, but while China is China (messed up to the bitter end), *if* Blizzard releases a good game, then it should be weighed on its own merits. It's the same thing for me with actors like Tom Cruise; I don't care if he's a Scientologist if he makes good movies. That being said.. who knows if this'll be a good game."

I agree with WoO that there's reason to be optimistic, and in the mean time I'm looking at the former games ;p

Diablo 3 anyone? Seems I can play that on the us servers without buying the whole freaking game again :p

I was at blizzcon and played the demo on the floor as a druid. It was quite fun and a beautiful game. I'm excited. Just seeing the slick blood coating the werebear/wolf forms was awesome.

Druid looks super cool too. The wolf seems even taller than the bear :D

Cool! Does it look pretty finished, then? I'm wondering how close they might be to release... maybe they'd shoot for (early?) summer 2020...

While it looks pretty crisp, it was a very small demo compared to the game. I was at level 20, couldn't test any talents besides what it had picked. new gear dropped and they had some runes to demo them, but it was very streamlined for the convention. My hope is more early 2021, more than likely though late 2021. One of the guys that was with me believe late 2020, but I don't think it will be ready by then.

Diablo 1 was put on GOG in March of this year (2019), btw.
http://www.gog.com/game/diablo
..which means that it's finally playable on Windows 10 right from download instead of the previous method of using an iso or dealing with crashes and bad mod versions. I started playing it yesterday and have been having fun :D

Sounds like Damian was on target with that late 2021 prediction for a Diablo IV release. They've started a "quarterly update" blog, so they intend to take their time.. which is good.. just hope that we don't get wiped out by Chinese viral weapons before they finish ;)

..
February 26, 2020 update:
http://new...quarterly-update-february-2020
TLDR:
- They took feedback from the Con and implemented some changes
- Looks like they've made aesthetic updates to the inventory screens ("our goal of a gritty, realistic UI")
- Experimenting with menu positions for PC and console versions
- Plot and gameplay side: monsters distributed into four "families" (cultists, cannibals, drowned, and.. an unreleased family?). It's supposed to correspond to how the other Diablos used "families", like, Diablo 1 had skeletons/zombies (undead), meats, animals, whatever.

I hope they don't spend too much time with console accommodations, since console is for dirty peasants ;p
