Fans were excited that Blizzard Entertainment will have an announcement about "Diablo 4" release date during the 2016 Blizzcon. To the dismay of some, there was no mention about the game's fourth installment.

The rumors that Blizzard will make a big announcement on Nov 4 about "Diablo 4" started when they handed out goody bags with a set of dice that has numbers 1, 1 and 4 which others interpreted as 11-4 or Nov 4! Different job openings have also been opened which was thought to be for developing "Diablo 4."

While "Diablo 3" is released last March 2014, gamers had really no clue now when is the release date for "Diablo 4." However, avid gamers are confident that when "Diablo 4" does come, it will be on the latest game consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. "Diablo 3" series were able in cross-platforms that also include PC, Mac, PlaysStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Instead of announcing "Diablo 4," Blizzard announced the new Necromancer Class for "Diablo 3" which has male and female playable options. What, then, should gamers expect of this new addition in the game aside from the six character classes like Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor and Wizard?

Necromancer originally came from "Diablo 2" which is now enhanced in "Diablo 3." The feature can already save five armors and abilities when players turn on the Armory feature of the game. In addition, the legions of the dead can now be manipulated by the players. With all these enhancements, fans can only imagine what more can they expect from "Diablo 4."

Meanwhile, Blizzard has included Shrouded Moors and Temple of the First Born in "Diablo 3" adventure mode which is offered free to players. For players patiently waiting for "Diablo 4," Blizzard's additional update to "Diablo 3" might be enough for now. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for the latest news and update of the "Diablo" series.
