According to Le Monde, one of France's largest publications, Diablo 4 has been shown to French employees of Blizzard Entertainment. The article is primarily focused on the company's struggles and the layoffs in the European departments. However, it does say that during a meeting with company officials, Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 will be not be released until 2020 at the earliest and "employees at Versailles have no idea if they will still be around when they eventually release".

    You wanna bet that Overwatch 2 is gonna have a lot of features from Lawbreakers?
    And that Diablo 4 will be more akin to Path of Exile?

    Why would Overwatch 2 be inspired by Lawbreakers?

    That would be like Pokemon taking inspiration from a Chinese Pokemon knockoff or Star Wars becoming a bad knockoff of Space Balls. Come to think of it... the latter actually happened with The Last Jedi, so I suppose anything is possible.

    Give me a proper Diablo ARPG. No MMO mechanics. No required online connectivity. No cash shop. No auction house. And absolutely no mobile port.

    Just give me a fuckdamned video game with all quality and no frills.

    While I do agree, STO is a reminder you can have a very viable and indentifiable name and still produce a turd of a game and a let down financially.

    While I don't really think they will take anything from Lawbreakers, I would love if they implemented a momentum based movement system like Lawbreakers had (not the anti gravity movement but just how you could build momentum like arena shooters).

    I’m sure no one thought they weren’t making it. Of course they were. Double time after the mobile announcement blew up in their face. 
    Regardless I will Buy day one.
    One of my favorite franchises.

    I'm surprised that there is no release date for Diablo Immortal as of yet.

    Makes me wonder if they've gotten cold feet.

    How many ARPGs went the mmorpg route and failed?

    Why in the world would Blizzard want to follow a path of guaranteed failure?

    How many of those failures made it to release?

    Honest question.

    Not many. And not one of those companies have Blizzards pedigree or quality standards. Say what you will of Blizzard, but they polish everything they make, regardless of actual game quality, to a mirror shine.

    If anyone can do the MMO/ARPG hybrid right, it's Blizzard. But also, why would they? The only answer I have to that question is microtransactions, and that's not a good thing.

    How many of the ARPGs with MMO features failed because they were ARPGs with MMO features and how many of them failed because they were just terrible games?

    Something like Devilian didn't fail because it was an ARPG with MMO features it failed because it was terrible and would have failed no matter what genre it was.

    Lots - Devilian, MU, ELOA, Guardians of Ember etc.... koreans have been pumping out ARPG-mmorpg hybrids for years.

    The last one is Lost Ark - while not nowhere a hit they expected it's also far from a failure.

    Then why has Lost Ark not been a multi-million player game?

    It certainly isnt a terrible game, it's the best out of all ARPG mmorpg hybrids and it's still underperformed in Korea, where Diablo for example was hugely successful

    I think the answer lies in one word. Korea. Who even wants to play yet another mediocre Korean game?

    Leave Diablo as arpg. StarCraft would fit far better into a MMORPG

    Diablo 1 is still my favourite version, if they just made a game and not a GaaS moneygrab then yeah, i would be far more interested in Diablo 4, but you know what, i don't think Blizzard can help themselves. :/

    MU didn't failed tho. It was one of the most successful games of the genre. Still has tons of players on both official server and on all those private servers. If you're talking about the recent sequel which is MU Legends, it failed because it was a bad game with tons of p2w elements in it. Not because of the genre. If you think all those games you mentioned failed because of the genre than we can say that Bless Online failed because of the same reason too. Not because the game was bad or anything right? With your logic we can say that mmorpg genre in general sucks and doomed to failure because a lot of shitty games are coming out from this genre every year. How is that sound to you?

    I took it as people wanting an actual mmorpg. Not adding features that appear in mmorpg's.

    Still, are those arpg's a failure because of their included mmorpg features or because they are bad games?

    Diablo is what made me get into computers and gaming. Diablo 3 made me a jaded Blizz fan. A lot of hope here but the love that made Diablo great is just not there. Now you have a franchise built to make money, not make your verse any more fun or cool.
