Diablo 4 is official – everything you need to know


It’s been over seven years since the initial release of Diablo 3, so obviously we’re champing at the bit to start another monstrous loot hunt in Diablo 4.

After months of rumors, the title has been officially confirmed by Blizzard at Blizzcon 2019 – and we now know that Diablo 4 is an isometric action RPG which sees the return of Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto.

It will feature an open world map with five regions, day/night cycles and a non-linear campaign. You’ll smash and loot your way through this world with one of five customizable classes, three of which are already announced. 

Finally, it’s being designed in a brand-new engine for PS4, Xbox One and PC, with plans to simultaneously release it on all platforms.

Diablo 4 trailers

Diablo 4 was officially announced at Blizzcon 2019 where we got the chance to see both the announcement story cinematic, and the first gameplay trailer. 

Diablo 4 release date

Bad news here: Diablo 4 probably won’t be released anytime soon. At a Blizzcon deep dive on the game, the game’s director said that he doesn’t expect the game to be finished anytime soon, “even by Blizzard’s standards of soon.”

That said, the fact that the team is developing the game for PS4 and Xbox One heavily implies that the game will be released within the next two to three years – as the lifespan of those consoles will be coming to an abrupt end after the launch of new consoles in late 2020.
