'Diablo 4' release date, news: BlizzCon 2016 announcement rumored, David Brevik denies involvement


Is Blizzard Entertainment going the announce “Diablo 4” at BlizzCon on Nov. 4? There are a lot of rumors saying the studio is ready to unveil the game at the event. However, “Diablo” creator David Brevik just poured some cold water on those rumors before it got too hot.

This may be true, but a misdirection is also possible. Blizzard may want to keep this a secret until the big reveal is made. Earlier this week, Brevik tweeted something that raised more than a couple of eyebrows.

What is the Libra sign for? Shacknews noted that in sidereal astrology, the Libra sign actually covers Oct. 16 to Nov. 15, and BlizzCon 2016 falls under these dates. Was Brevik teasing something when he posted this?

Meanwhile, Brevik and former executive Bill Roper were both at Blizzard a couple of weeks ago. What were they doing there if they are no longer with the company? Perhaps just visiting? Roper also made a tweet denying he was back with Blizzard. Despite the tweets, some people still think there is something going on. GameSpot noted that Brevik and Roper’s tweets came just minutes apart.

Months ago, YouTuber Rhykker speculated that Blizzard might announce “Diablo 4” during the event next month. According to Rhykker, a BlizzCon 2016 promo pack he was gifted contained a set of dice. Apparently, one of the dice contained a subtle tease.

Instead of the normal four-sided die features, the number on the die were misprinted. Instead of displaying the same three numbers, the die reads 1-1-4 instead. Rhykker noted that the 1-1-4 probably means Nov. 4, the day BlizzCon is set to start. And what is the abbreviation for a four-sided die? D4.

As of this moment, Blizzard has yet to announce that they are working on “Diablo 4” and the people rumored to be linked with the project have denied their involvement. Until they make a confirmation, all reports concerning the game are rumors at best, so readers are advised to take everything with a grain of salt.
