We’re getting a few rumors about some upcoming announcements Blizzard could be making at this year’s BlizzCon 2019. Supposedly, the company is going to come out and share details about a Diablo 2 remaster version, and then they’re going to share about Diablo 4.
The rumor is coming from Metro on Twitter, which you can check out below.
For anyone who cares, diablo 4 and diablo 2 remastered will also be announced. 🙂 #BlizzCon2019

Metro is an Overwatch streamer who has been sharing additional details about the upcoming Overwatch 2 set to come out in the future, too. The move to share about future Diablo titles is likely going to happen, given last year’s BlizzCon in 2018. Many fans walked away from it hurt and confused, due to the Blizzard sharing their announcement for a Diablo game set to release as a mobile game. It was not supposed to be a replacement for Diablo 4, but the company had said they did not want to share details too early. BlizzCon 2019 might be the right time.
Because of the recent stance the company has had about their streamers vocalizing support for Freeing Hong Kong and the treatment of the Chinese government, many are looking at Blizzard with a profoundly cynical eye. The Diablo announcements could help lighten the mood, but it may not be enough.
We’re going to see what Blizzard does. BlizzCon 2019 starts on Nov. 1 and goes until Nov. 2. It’s a brief weekend in Anaheim, but fans are going to get their fair share of announcements. They might be getting some new details about an Overwatch 2, among other titles coming out in the next few years.
We’ll learn more details in the next few weeks. We won’t be able to confirm anything, nor do we have any forthcoming information on either release. Make sure to check out Gamepur for more details when BlizzCon 2019 kicks off on Nov. 1.
