Diablo 4 News Set to be Revealed This December Before The Game Awards
Insider Gaming has learned that information on Diablo 4 is set to be revealed before The Game Awards in December.
It’s understood that certain media outlets will be given the opportunity to play the game and interview the developers, with the embargo lifting “before TGA”, it was said. An accurate embargo date was provided, but cannot be reported due to the fluidity of such dates being changed.
Diablo 4 currently has a release date of 2023, but it’s expected that Blizzard Entertainment could give a more accurate release date for the game in the coming weeks.
The media embargo does imply that Diablo 4 will not be featured at The Game Awards, but a leaked Activision Blizzard document had previously revealed that pre-orders will be made available at The Game Awards.
The game was announced in November 2019 at BlizzCon 2019 and on June 12, 2022, a 2023 release was announced.
Five classes were already announced to be coming to the game:
The Barbarian – which appears in Diablo II and Diablo III, has the ability to switch between weapons while in combat.
The Sorceress – returning from Diablo II, is an elemental mage-type character wielding fire, cold, and lightning magics.
The Druid – returning from Diablo II, can shapeshift between human, werewolf, and werebear forms, and possesses earthen and storm magics.
The Rogue – returning from the first game, is a quick-moving combatant that alternates between bladed melee or ranged combat with a bow.
The Necromancer – returning from Diablo II and Diablo III, utilizes dark magic for summoning and attacks
