So this news is still quite fresh, but Blizzard, one of the most renowned game developers in the industry, was working on Diablo 4 from 2013 to 2016 and the game was supposed to be very Dark Souls esque. The project was apparently scrapped in 2016. Diablo 4 is still in the works however Blizzard is likely no longer taking the game down the Dark Souls route. This is an absolute shame as I think we were on the cusp of getting the best action RPG ever. And Diablo’s theme would work extremely well with Dark Souls style camera views and combat. Oh well :(

Project Hades was reportedly a Diablo game in development that would be more like Dark Souls, an over the shoulder dungeon crawler that was also canceled.

Rumors are now pointing to Diablo 4 being a generic, perpetually monetized, always online, likely subscription based MMO. Prepare for World Of Diablo. All they key staff at Blizzard involved with Diablo since it's original incarnations have jumped ship as well.

:( Well, there goes my interest in the series. That sounds incredibly bad.

Cuz honestly, the mobile announcement makes me think it's far from a rumor.

This is actually far from the truth. All the leaks seem to indicate that though Diablo 3 sold really well, that Blizzard was not happy with how the game turned out. While they made a buck, there is internal concern that it was done at the expense of damaging the franchise. They are committed to restoring the game to greatness. With that said, I’ve also learned that they are still considering making it a third person game, a-la Dark Souls; however, that does not mean they are looking to make “Diablo Souls”. They are just unsure if the isometric view is dated. It just may be by the time the game comes out in 2020/2021.

If you still support Blizzard *cough/Activision/cough* in 2018 you are actively damaging the game industry.

@ffogell I want to like PoE, but man does it get boring. Grim Dawn felt way more like an authentic Diablo experience.
