Eurogamer sources have told us that yes - the project is very much in production. And as you might expect, the game will be a port of Diablo 3.

Our sources could not confirm whether the game's Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions will be included - but at this point it would be surprising if they were not.


Apparently when Blizz tried to tamp down on the rumor mill, it was because Nintendo didn't want an official statement to be made that early:

while Blizzard frequently encourages speculation about its upcoming releases, Nintendo typically does not - and third-party Switch games have often been announced relatively close to their launch.


I own a Switch myself, and would probably consider buying a port IF it contained RoS + Necro AND we could play it offline. Thoughts?
We don't always want what we need or need what we want, but chasing needless wants at the expense of wantless needs leaves us forever wanting.

so far PS3 XB360 Xbone and PS4 have been offline so the Switch should be too. It should contain RoS for sure and probably the Necro but who knows on that one. Portable D3 and Skyrim.... The switch is becoming something for me to actually consider.

Why is this a problem?

he's just mad that D3 is going to get more sales and his armchair programming skills don't let him understand that it's probably not that hard to get the code to run on other platforms by now. I mean Bethesda did it with Skyrim and that's a far more demanding game.

Yeah, so much for the "undisclosed Diablo project" some people thought for certain would be D4 this time for sure...

I'd say they are more likely working on the Druid for D3 before we get remotely close to hearing about D4.

The fact we still can't play offline while console versions can is idiocy. Even if we had to do offline only characters to prevent cheating or something like that.
