Diablo Reign of Terror: Is this Blizzard’s next big game?

  • Blizzard Representative Claims Diablo III Cross-Play Is A Possibility

It's worth noting that the popular publisher and developer now has multiple projects in the works-some of which may benefit from receiving cross-play-so it's safe to presume that even more information regarding those ventures will be announced during BlizzCon 2018. That's why when the Blizzard Store suddenly had Diablo: Reign of Terror merch, the Internet collectively lost its mind. A poster and two t-shirts can be found on the store with that name, with images of Diablo.

I'm not gonna lie... Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos also sounds similar but is completely unrelated besides the fact that it was developed by Blizzard.

The successor in the series, Diablo 3, too was a super-hit video game on its own and while it has received countless mixed reviews and ratings, it's still a fan favorite by Blizzard. On November 2nd, from 3:30 PM to 4:15 PM EDT, we'll likely see for certain what this branding is all about - before Overwatch, Hearthstone or even World of Warcraft.


Business Insider Australia asked about the feature while demoing Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Switch, and a Blizzard representative responded by saying "it's a matter of when, not if".

Blizzard has revealed its BlizzCon 2018 merchandise and a few of the items bear the name "Diablo Reign of Terror", which may indicate a potential leak of the title of a new game in the Diablo franchise. Blizzard previously said cross-play wouldn't be coming to the game and it seemingly hasn't looked into this any further, despite the recent claims.

We don't know exactly what this will be, it could end up being a new game, a new expansion, or it could be the title for the upcoming Netflix animated series, which was confirmed last month.
