Builds, Guides, and News for Diablo 4
Diablo 4 Quarterly Update Topics Detailed Ahead of Post While we're still waiting for the third Diablo 4 2020 quarterly update we've just gotten some solid information on the contents of the post. Community manager PezRadar went to the Diablo reddit and shared two of the topics that will be covered, saying the primary focus of the update will be the talents and talent tree, more precisely that it will be the "core discussion". We also find out that we will get another look at possibly the most important part of the game once again, itemization, but to a much lesser extent that the talents, with the caveat that it will be the core discussion in update 4.

Second Warcraft Movie Rumor Mentioned by Chris Metzen There have been some rumors going around recently about a potential second Warcraft movie that may be in development. These were somewhat vague and just mentioned that the production company for the first movie, Legendary Entertainment, were "already discussing" the next Warcraft movie behind the scenes and that it would wipe the slate clean and start the franchise over. The next rumor had a little more weight to it, coming from a relatively reliable "scooper", Daniel Ritchman via Movie Web, and claimed that the second movie is actually already in development. All related articles mention the poor critical and audience receptions of the first movie, as well as it's success in China and high box office returns from overseas.

Blizzard Hiring for the Diablo Franchise It's been quite a while since we heard anything from Diablo 4, as we wait for the third quarterly update which should be arriving by the end of the month. However, there has been some movement on the staff front, in addition to the recent recruitment post for a monetization expert. We have two new job postings to take a look at today, with Global Digital Marketing Manager and a Senior PR Manager positions being available. Diablo Diablo Sep 23, 2020 at 02:48

Possible Diablo 3 Season 22 Delay and Diablo 4 Q3 Update We have a few blue posts for the Diablo franchise, as community manager PezRadar has chimed in on two very high interest issues. Let's start with a possible delay for Diablo 3 Season 22, which should also be about a month and change away if recent season durations are any indication, but this one might take a little longer: Diablo Diablo Sep 09, 2020 at 17:08

Diablo 4 Hiring Monetization Director, Fenris Updated and More We have a couple of news bits from the Diablo 4 universe to share, which may indicate that the game is coming along nicely and we maybe won't have to wait 3-500 years to see it. First off Blizzard are hiring a director of Business Performance, but the focus in the recruitment post is on creating the overall business model for the game and especially post-launch monetization. Now, we've known D4 would have microtransactions ever since they announced it, with cosmetics for the mounts and probably more, so it makes perfect sense that they'd need someone in charge of the business side of that. Despite many players being afraid that Blizzard will (eventually) offer MTXes for power itself, they've firmly stated that's never going to be the case. Diablo IV D4 6 comments Aug 17, 2020 at 14:15
Carbot's Diablols 2 Episodes 2-4 We have some more Diablols to share, as Carbot has made 3 new videos since the last time we checked in! Once more we get some really accurate and true depictions of the various scenarios tha happen in D2, from the high level player coming to a game an throwing out free loot and causing mayhem, some Blood Raven action as she faces off against a very fluffy druid, with a very authentic Amazon getting frustrated with the multiplayer loot system, and finally some very electrifying Rakanishu action.

Diablo 2 4K60 Upscaled Gameplay: 4 Acts Sorceress The remaster-bait continues, as we have another 4K 60 FPS upscaled Diablo 2 video, but this time much more extensive, as the first one was only the first 15 minutes of the game. We see the sorceress go through all 4 of the base game's acts (and poke around vendors in act 5, just to get us teased). It's looking damn good and, as many community members have mentioned, this is pretty much what they'd want out of a remaster, just more modern graphics with maybe a touch of quality of life improvements, like the stash sizes.

Activision Blizzard Q2 2020 Financial Report It's time for some financials, as the second quarter of 2020 gets a look! As expected, the impact of the global pandemic and stay at home orders increased player interest in WoW, as its reach and engagement grew once again. Interest in the Shadowlands was also high, with many new pre-orders, and franchise engagement is the highest this decade for a pre-expansion period. Meanwhile, Blizzard overall had the same amount of monthly active users as in the first quarter. Blizzard Blizzard Aug 04, 2020 at 20:57
Old Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction Trailer Upscaled to 4K It's time for more Baal after his recent Diablo: Immortal appearance! We see a lot of upscales coming and going, but it's always great when they not only improve the video quality, but also remind us of some less familiar trailers and cinematics. That's exactly what we have today, as an E3 2001 trailer for LoD, which even I don't remember, and while it's mostly pieces of the expansion's intro cinematic, we have some great new Baal voiceover, as well as a whole lot of Worldstone shots that aren't present in the game.

New Very Funny Diablo 2 Carbot Animations Series: Diablols 2 Carbot is getting into the Diablo 2 business, after the anniversary video he did for Blizzard! The new series, Diablols 2 just got its first entry (and a prelude Ep 0), and as usual with Carbot's stuff, it's a perfect(ly hilarious) encapsulation of a specific part of the game. For Episode 1 we get the absolutely flawless snowglobe that will forever remain a true representation of the Den of Evil + starting experience. Blizzard Blizzard 5 comments Jul 11, 2020 at 14:00
Diablo 2 Retrospective Here's the 20-year retrospective for Diablo 2, featuring a lot of Blizzard staff sharing their thoughts and memories of the game, including both franchise head Rod Ferguson and Diablo 4 lead Jesse McCree (but unfortunately not featuring some of the original developers, who recently shared their thoughts on a D2 remaster), as well as arguments on why the game has held up for so long and some fun things the community does to make the game more interesting.

Diablo 2 Creators on the Rumored Remaster: No Censoring, It's a Tough Job IGN had a chat with original Diablo 2 developers Max Schaefer (Executive Producer, co-founder of Blizzard North) and Matt Uelmen (Composer), and while talking about their latest project, Torchlight 3, they were asked about the rumored Diablo 2: Resurrected remaster. First, Schaefer talked about the actual remastering itself, and the technical hurdles it might involve: Blizzard Blizzard 3 comments Jun 22, 2020 at 20:33
Diablo 4 Quarterly Update Still on Track for This Month We have some news on the second Diablo 4 quarterly update, in the form of a very short reply from Community Manager Lead PezRadar, confirming that it's still planned for this month, with a note that things can change. But we do now know it's at least written (in some form), so that's something. You can check out the previous quarterly update from back in February here, which focuses on the UI, controllers and co-op and the Cannibal monster family.

Diablo 2 Remaster Significantly More Likely After Two Job Postings Surface There have been plenty of rumors about a supposed Diablo 2 remaster, Diablo 2: Resurrected being the most recent and most prominent, but we didn't really have any real indications for it other than rumors and supposed anonymous sources. That has changed a little today as two job postings indicate the possibility of a release and seemingly support the original rumor/leak. Blizzard Blizzard 8 comments Jun 18, 2020 at 17:45
World First Diablo 2 + LoD Speed Run in Under 1 Hour Another weird one today, as we have the entirety of Diablo 2 and the Lord of Destruction expansion getting speed run (without any glitches/hacks etc.) solo in under an hour! It took Slimo 59 minutes and 29 seconds to get to Baal and down him, with a lot of time spent on leveling to 18 for Teleport, followed by a looot of blinking around the various maps and spamming Nova and Static Field all over the place. The probably biggest moment (aside from Diablo and Baal dying) comes at the 27 minute mark, when a massive amount of farming the first pack in the Jail level 1 results in the big Teleport breakthrough, at which point the speed takes off and acts melt away, with the entirety of act 5 actually taking less than 6 minutes!

Diablo 2 Remaster? A "Classic Revival" to Be Announced at IGN Summer IGN's Summer of Gaming event has posted a schedule for their June events, which has brought up some interesting questions and theories. We know Blizzard are participating in the event and one of the entries on the schedule is labeled as an "Unannounced Classic Revival", without any attribution for which studio it belongs to. As we all know, Diablo 2 remaster rumors have been swirling around since BlizzCon 2018, with the recent Diablo: Resurrected one having stirred things up (the one about Activision-owned studio Vicarious Visions working on the remaster and it coming out this year).
