Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 & Mobile Title Coming By 2020?

A finance colossus is expecting that Activision Blizzard will get a boost in the next 2-3 years, due to the release of new titles in the Diablo and Overwatch franchise, as well as a mobile game.

According to a CNBC article, Goldman Sachs raised its rating for Activision Blizzard shares, predicting strong sales results for its future titles. What, you would ask, are these future titles? The analysts of the finance company predict a new Diablo game by 2019, Overwatch 2 by 2020 and a new mobile title.

We've actually seen Blizzard job postings for all of the aforementioned titles this year. Obviously, the Diablo game brings back two words that we haven't heard since 2016: Diablo 4. The Overwatch 2 statement is a bit more perplexing: Overwatch is fine as it is, with the developers having promised a lot of free content to keep coming. However, they've never ruled out PvE plans in the Overwatch universe and perhaps that's what "Overwatch 2" will be about. Lastly, we already know that the upcoming mobile game is going to be in the Warcraft universe and it's probably going to be a MMO-RTS.

What do you guys think about these predictions?

"Overwatch 2" is clearly a money grab... Unless they give us some sort of campaign or something else new and substantial.

I was stunned Diablo 4 (or whatever is next) wasn't announced already. That game is about as stale as possible.

The mobile game will be interesting. No idea what it even could be.

For a second I pooped my pants and misread that Diablo 4 would be a mobile game. PHEW. Don't scare me like that.

Perhaps "Overwatch 2" will be a big expansion DLC akin to Reaper of Souls? And that "2" is just to entitle the project? Just taking a wild, very wild guess.

Also, @Zadina what happened to your Orc/Jesus portrait?

The Diablo franchise/game really needs something new, like an expansion or maybe a new Diablo game, "Diablo 4".

Diablo 4 seems a long time coming, that'll surely be a welcome breath of fresh air for the series.  I imagine (like many others it seems) that the Overwatch 2 will be a large PvE/campaign addition.  And lastly, a mobile Warcraft-style game seems like it'd fit well into the mobile market, and to me it seems odd that Blizzard's waited so long to put a mobile game out.

Overwatch 2 is a certainty, I highly doubt Diablo 4 is happening. 

As far as mobile... I'd guess something like Marvel Puzzle Quest.  Or a HOTS mini-game type of thing.

For mobile it could easily be a RTS game. Easily doable. Heck, could even be a port of WC1 to 3.

Exactly! I was about to write the same thing.

 They are making these speculations/predictions based on the trends by the rest of the games industry. It's the line of thinking like how Bungie has done with Destiny 1&2. And how Activision does with the rest of their console titles and such. So it's only speculation.

 Diablo 4 is likely at 'some point'. Blizzard doesn't rush anything when it comes to their big franchises. So we know they will take their time on a new Diablo game as they always have.

 An Overwatch 2 is far less likely. We would all like to see an Overwatch story based game centered around a more co-op oriented title with no PvP. But it's not very likely. Although I could see them doing that as a far simpler mobile title rather then a full on console/PC title.

 And again it's them speculating that the mobile game will be a WoW based game rather then a HOTS one since WoW is their biggest property. Hearthstone IS their WoW mobile game. Those of us that actually play Blizzard games feel it's more likely another mobile game done by Blizz would be a 'Nexus' based game a la Clash Royale. Or at least those are my thoughts/opinions on all this.

I thought the Overwatch 2 was the mobile one from the way I read it <_>

Diablo 4 would be cool, Overwatch 2 would be cool but the usual stuff about Blizz and money and people cribbing...they'll probably give a statement soon since this seemed to come out of nowhere from Goldman Smacks

Ummm, they haven't released anything about any of these products yet so you're kinda putting the 'ass' in assuming it's the same. If you're talking about same mechanics/universe as being the thing you already own....wow... you're like that dude that will never stops cribbing about how every other Pokemon generation is crap and the original 151 is the best and only gen ever

As much as I know it might happen; Diablo 4 shouldn't be a thing. They shouldn't create a whole new game where we have to kill Diablo for the 4th time. This kind of story telling of "Evil never dies" is tiring, and the thought of me having to go through a whole new story where I have to face new big baddies then the big honcho himself sounds boring and quite repetitive. In my honest words they just need to do one last expansion that just finishes up the series for good, they are running out of ideas and making Diablo 4 will be stretching it waaaay too much. Just end the series and go to the chalk board to create new ARPG's in similar styles of Diablo.

      This is how Blizzard Customer Support treats you:
      Long story short, I was spamming the world chat, several people reported me and that's why I have got a 24h silence. That is totally correct and I have read the EULA and fully respect the rules of the game.
      The silence ban has started and when I tried to say something in chat it says: "Your chat and mail privileges have been temporarily suspended pending Game Master review". Which means that the report case has not yet been reviewed, and I have already got silenced, which is odd, because what if I get a group of people and report someone who did nothing wrong and he gets 24h silence and he needs to wait until his case is reviewed?
      Anyways the 24h almost passed, and the game gave me the same message that I mentioned above, so I opened a ticket to ask when do my case will get reviewed, and what can I do.
      The first customer support guy overturned (stopped) the silence ban without any problem. I reopened the ticket to ask several questions about this issue.
      This reopened ticked was reviewed by another customer support guy, who said that he reviewed my case, and applied the 24h silence ban once again. (Which is totally wrong and incorrect, because I have already had my 24h silence punishment).I have reopened the ticket, and told them that this is not correct and how come that now I am punished with a 48h silence ban overall, and asked them to remove the silence.
      The last customer support guy who reviewed this ticket says that the first 24h silence was overturned before it was over, and that is why the 24 silence was re applied once again and closed the ticket so I cannot say anything else.
      Once again, I totally understand that my actions were against the rules and I deserve the 24h punishment, but not 48h just because a customer support guy is incompetent and does not care about us and just applies the ban once again.
      This kind of customer support behaviour is not at Blizzard's level, at least i thought so, and it is pathetic and disgusting.
      Please share this because it can happen to you and anyone.

      Game Designer Chadd "Celestalon" Nervig announced on Twitter that he will be leaving the World of Warcraft team to join the Hearthstone team.
      Celestalon worked on the Endless Halls maze design in World of Warcraft (for Lucid Nightmare). He's also known for playing World of Warcraft with a tablet. We wish him success in his future endeavors!

      Classes, systems, spreadsheets, the occasional obscure questline... These have been the primary focus of my life for years now. I cannot thank the WoW community enough, for your passion, your friendship, the laughs, the excitement, for being able to do something I love.
      It has been an honor. But the time has come for me to adventure elsewhere within Azeroth, and tackle a different challenge... Cards! I'll see you soon, Hearthstone fans!
