Diablo is one of the biggest and most beloved game franchise in the world right now. And with the Blizzcon event coming in just a few days, there are a lot of rumors about a brand new Diablo game. But sadly, Blizzard has shot down some early expectation of gamers for a "Diablo IV game", with a new blog post.

In Blizzard's blog, the company has made certain that people should keep their expectation in check, when coming to this year's Blizzcon.

Just a few days before Blizzcon 2018

"We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that 'good things come to those who wait,' but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror."

What does that mean to you? That mean: "Diablo IV might not coming this year, sadly."

So you better not keep your hope up too high while waiting for Blizzcon this year.

All those speculations about Diablo IV comes from an announcement from Blizzard earlier this year. In those announcements, Blizzard said that they were working on several projects for the Diablo franchise. The start of these projects is a Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III, coming on November 2nd, 2018. Also, the company has posted new jobs recruitments for their new projects, which is an “action-packed game, unique visual direction, and beautiful, visceral combat experience”. All these information makes the fans believed that, Diablo IV is coming, start with an announcement at Blizzcon 2018.

Just keep your hopes up in check, when coming to this year's Blizzcon
