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.
