We have been reporting rumors about BlizzCon 2019’s announcements and learning about what many are looking forward to seeing at the event. We might get a remaster for Diablo 2, Diablo 4, and a sequel to Overwatch, which would not allow you to carry your progress for the original game. That last one might not sit too well with players, though.
Blizzard has been tight-lipped thus far, of course, and it will continue to do so until the events at Anaheim on Nov. 1. But, the schedule of the event is likely giving us some serious hints about what could be happening soon.
You can see on the official website, from 8:30pm CET up until 12:15am CET, Blizzard has four “coming soon” slots fixed for the Mythic Stage, which is the central stage held for the most important panels. Two more “coming soon” slots are happening on Saturday, Nov. 2.
As noted by VG247, the Mythic Stage has already gotten booked for cosplay contests and other events. But the fact those four slots have not received a name or a description is seemingly hinting at things we should not know about yet.
That could mean those rumors about a Diablo 2 Remastered, Diablo 4, and Overwatch 2 might become real. But also there could be a few more surprises we haven’t heard anything about yet. We can’t know for sure if Blizzard is going to stir up plans of announcing a brand new IP. Given the recent announcements from Riot Games regarding League of Legend tie-in games, it could be an excellent time to see those two companies truly going to war with one another.
So, are we genuinely close to those announcements? We’ll see.
