Blizzard stated that no announcement has been pulled from BlizzCon this year and the company is listening to the fans and will announce the other projects at the right time. However, Cheng, too, fell short of invoking the magic words "Diablo 4".
One of the most controversial announcements from the show was the final announcement. But fans were already in the bathroom, shaving and humming along to Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". It was clear that either a Diablo 4 game or a Diablo remaster title is in the works, but still, ending a show that saw big Overwatch, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft and Warcraft announcements with a mobile game was a huge misstep.
According to the comments on the trailer, the dislike count had gone past 500,000, but the video was re-uploaded which reset the count. This leads to the conclusion that Blizzard is indeed deleting negative feedback in an attempt to manipulate approval optics.
Blizzard has since sounded off on the matter, which we'll report in a later story.

This was a start, particularly as Bournemouth had begun the season so impressively. In terms of our performance, I thought we deserved to be leading by more than one.
Since then, Blizzard has processed the fan reaction and backlash, and have responded to it via an interview with Kotaku.
Both Blizzard co-founder, Allen Adham explained in an interview that the studio was waiting for scornful remarks from fans but they were not expecting it to be this enormous. "Blizzard has said now, that they are working on multiple Diablo projects". And it always will be. "We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that 'good things come to those who wait, ' but evil things often take longer". And there will be more steps into mobile. Speaking to Digital Trends Blizzard is planning to bring more IPs to mobile devices. We just want a real, Diablo game that's following Diablo 3 (or 2, if that's your thing).
"We definitely feel that playing is believing and we definitely value our fans".
"We expect Activision Blizzard to outpace its peers with its in-game monetization, and expect dramatic growth in its mobile business as it launches new titles based upon its successful PC and console games", Wedbush wrote. The game looks and plays similarly to traditional "Diablo" games, except it's tailored for smartphones' touch controls and smaller screen. No, I'm not talking about the UK-EU Brexit negotiations entering their final phase or the HBO box-set levels of drama coming out of the U.S. mid-terms. One of them is the game that fans are waiting for, and it was almost announced last week.
