With BlizzCon 2019 taking place in early November this year, I can’t help but wonder if Blizzard will reveal Diablo 4 to the world, as nobody in the high heavens would like to see BlizzCon being focused on Diablo: Immortal. Earlier this year we reported that a job listing at Blizzard hinted at Diablo 4 and Blizzard has also confirmed that they have multiple Diablo projects in the works. Now, a rumour suggests that Diablo 4 might release next year, sooner than anyone really expected.

As always, please take a rumour like this one with a large helping of salt until such time as Blizzard officially reveals Diablo 4 to the world. With that out of the way, the rumour stems from French news publication Le Monde, as reported and translated by GoGConnect. The report suggests that Blizzard has even shown off the game to employees in Paris.
Apparently, job cuts are the reason for this leak. The report, as translated by GoGConnect reads:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33fff0″ class=”” size=”22″]What about the future? The Blizzard Entertainment trams have already had the right o a presentation of the highly anticipated Diablo 4 and know that a new Overwatch is in the pipes. But none will come out before 2020, at best, and the employees of Versailles do not know if they will see the color. ‘Activision Blizzard will make less money, but still make a lot of money,’ said a veteran.[/perfectpullquote]
Further, it is being reported that Diablo 4 will release next year. If Blizzard has, in fact, shown off the game already to employees, then it is in a playable state, which means a 2020 release date is definitely possible.
