"Diablo 4" seems to be showing very little light thus far, and some Blizzard Entertainment fans may or may not comprehend why. Nonetheless, the reason behind may seem quite a bit more legitimate, making things a little more complex than it should be.

As some may know, "Diablo 3" has been around for a few years and with such a gargantuan following, it is almost apparent that all the continuities thereafter will still be hits. That being said, there is only the presumed "Diablo 4" today-one that many are still dreading on coming forth due to many factors.

Recent reports suggest that "Diablo 4" may not come anytime soon as Blizzard Entertainment is directing their focus on perhaps one of the most exciting downloadable contents to date for "Diablo 3." This, is of course, the recently announced "Rise of the Necromancer" which aims to bring the classic titular character once again. More than that, the company also divulged the arrival of the decade-old "Diablo" game within the third title, which many seem to have loved the idea of.

This was further supported by the idea that "Diablo 3" is quite the popular entry up to this day, even with the likes of "Overwatch," "DOTA 2" and "World of Warcraft" still up in the air. BlizzCon was also not too informative on anything in relation to "Diablo 4," but instead announced the "Corpse Explosion" ability for the Necromancer as well as some special weapons and items. Lastly, with the interval between "Diablo 2" and "Diablo 3" being as extensive, it is almost presumable that the same will work for the fourth title respectively.

Are you willing to wait another ten years for "Diablo 4?" Or is the third title adequate enough for those who patronize the franchise consistently? Stay locked to GamenGuide and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
