Blizzard Reveals "Unannounced Diablo Project"

The Blizzard Careers Website reveal that Blizzard is working on an unannounced Diablo project. They now have job listings for Dungeon Artist, Diablo and Environment Artist, Diablo, and each is listed under the heading of "unannounced project." Both listings talk about working in the Diablo environment, and come right out and say why right up top:
The minions of Hell are growing stronger...

We're working on a new, unannounced Diablo project.

Ya, what I'm proposing is more like a polished Kings and Heroes, Hexen, coop Skyim dungeon crawler, etc. Basically a COOP 1st person Diablo with an Overwatch engine.

Well, you can play WoW from the first person perspective, but I wouldn't suggest it..

No, WoW is an MMO and 3rd person.

Confirmed I guess. Too bad.

I am not going back to Diablo 3 ever. Was hoping for a new game.

I’m thinking something like a theme for each season in Diablo 3. That would be cool, discuss.

I would not rule out Diablo 4. After they turned Diablo 3 basically into merely a prettier looking Diablo 2 they might as well redo Diablo 2 again plus loot boxes.

How did they do that? It's been ages since I've played either, so I don't really recall any significant differences (other than way more setpieces in 3), and never followed up with changes to 3.

They did that by taking out the RMAH and the big loot patch (2.0 or whatever it was) that came with the expansion or shortly before that.

Nuances aside, Diablo 3 plays like a graphically enhanced Diablo 2. The only minor innovation in gameplay is the partially destructible environment where you can e.g. make chandeliers drop on enemies.
Otherwise it's the same old loot clickfest as ever.

There is definitely nothing in Diablo 3 now that remotely warrants the long break between 2 and 3 and I doubt that only the shitty RMAH added all those years.
Iterating and reiterating my ass... the core of Diablo 3 could have been a sequel that came out two years after Diablo 2 no problem.

A lot of stuff in Diablo 3 is now archaic and feels dated... it really needs a new sequel. I know Diablo 2 HD is most likely coming out, wonder if this is that or not.
Didnt they add a Diablo 2 mode in Diablo 3 in one of the last patches?

Personally I'd love to see Blizzard make a 1st person COOP dungeon crawler, akin to Hellraid or Kings and Heroes.

There is a serious lack of any sort of polished COOP 1st person dungeon crawler out there (including those two above), and I'd love to see Blizzard use what they've learned about the Overwatch engine and RPG's in general to mesh the two.

People don't even want anything different. Seems everyone is perfectly happy with Diablo 2 rehashes. The dumber and simpler, the better. Just click, click, click and smoke weed.

So why waste time and risk to miss billion$ in case loot boxes get the gambling ban hammer or some shit like that? Even Blizztard might be able to put the pedal to the medal in such an environment as we have right now and crank out Diablo 4 sooner than expected with a nice GaaS business model... base game for $69.99 and then one expansion after another for $49.99/piece plus new characters for $29.99/dude and loot boxes galore.

my bet would be on another expansion, or even just another class and a small amount of content. Way too soon for D4 by Blizzard's time standards.

I don't think another class / mini content patch would bring me back. Not until it was on a pretty decent sale anyway. A new expansion I could see myself going for though.

A new class with new spells and new hats - $9.99

No new gameplay - too much work would have to be done for this.

Also, I look forward to the great Bluesnews Diablo news thread discussions. There were some doozies leading up to Diablo 3's release on this site, and well afterwards too.
