Diablo 3 Cinematics Upscaled to 8K, 48 FPS Diablo 3 Cinematics Upscaled to 8K, 48 FPS There's a new and pretty damn impressive upscale of the Black Soulstone Diablo 3 cinematic, as it goes all the way up to 8K (but also 4K, for literally everyone), but also to 48 FPS which improves it quite a bit more than the resolution itself. As this is the Upscale channel, there's also a side-by-side comparison of the original and upgrade. Azmodan is looking pretty great in particular, and as usual with these 48 FPS upgrades, the whole thing flows really well: Diablo III D3 Nov 16, 2020 at 03:48 by Starym

Diablo: Immortal Is Hiring a Lead Content Designer Now? Diablo: Immortal Is Hiring a Lead Content Designer Now? So this is a bit of a weird one, as Wyatt Cheng, Lead Designer for Diablo: Immortal, has posted a job listing for a "Lead Content Designer". This seems pretty strange as the game is supposedly very far along, and was even said to be "almost finished" a long time ago, so why would they be hiring a lead role for a core aspect of the game now? It's possible the position only recently opened up as someone left the project, but with such a high profile position and the game presumably close to ready it seems like strange timing. There could also be another Blizzard "do-over" like what happened with Diablo 3 and what also allegedly happened with Diablo 4 a couple times, which would mean the game isn't coming out any time soon.

The other option is what is sort-of suggested in the tweet itself, as "to grow Sanctuary well into the future" might mean that the role will be focusing on post-launch content, after someone else got the base game ready. The job description also mentions content in "patch updates" and a live content schedule, so this second option is more likely.
