Fans are widely speculating that "Diablo 4" is already in the making. This is because they believe the introduction of retro Diablo in "Diablo 3" is a strategy by Blizzard to keep gamers hooked. However, the idea of a "Diablo 4" is simply at a speculative stage now.

Blizzard hasn't revealed anything about "Diablo 4" though fans can surely check out the "Diablo III - Rise Of The Necromancer" upcoming expansion in this YouTube video. The "Diablo 3" new patch has its share of new features and improvements. Few glitches and bugs that troubled players have been fixed.

In order to celebrate the franchise's 20th anniversary, Blizzard will be introducing the above-mentioned retro Diablo patch within the third installment in January 2017. Players who have already installed the "Diablo 3," which is the predecessor of "Diablo 4," patch, may access the upcoming game earlier.

The "Diablo III" 2.4.3 patch will introduce more power for the Talisman of Akkhan and the Saffron Wrap of Barbarian. During the BlizzCon 2016, fans expected the developer to come out with "Diablo 4." However, Blizzard surprised fans with a retro patch within the third game.

Blizzard also announced the "Diablo III" DLC, "The Rise of the Necromancer," which will be introduced in 2017. Players will be treated to some blood magic by the dark arts master who would summon the undead army. Reports suggest that the "Diablo 3" Necromancer characters are inspired from "Diablo 2." The new characters would be getting the Corpse Explosion ability. For those who are not aware, the Necromancers are the masters of the dark arts. So, when should we expect "Diablo 4"?

Thus, Blizzard has brought a lot to the table to keep fans happy and hooked, even if "Diablo 4" is not coming anytime soon. "Diablo 3" keeps getting bigger and better and Blizzard will update the game once again before it releases the Necromancer DLC. The "Rise of the Necromancer" DLC pack is expected to add a whole new level of excitement to the game.
