Blizzcon is once again fast approaching and talks of a “Diablo 4” debut in November surfaced again. According to the latest chatter online, the #Game Developer itself dropped the latest clue of its development, so read on to find out more.

Diablo 2 Remaster

This latest speculation surrounding the future of the "Diablo" franchise stemmed from a couple of job listings posted on Blizzard’s website. Unfortunately, one of the two ads was already taken down but Blizzplanet was quick to take note of the details.

According to the blog site, #Blizzard Entertainment is in need of a game developer who will be responsible for reviving its hit video games, “Warcraft 3” and “Diablo 2” back to glory, hinting that both titles will possibly get a remastered version.

Although this particular job post has been removed, there are other ads that also indicate the creation of more remastered titles.

Diablo 4 in the works

Now, for gamers who are not into remastered games, the second job listing that is still up is looking for a production director, senior game producer, senior level designer and creative director for the "Diablo" series. The need for the production director seemingly hints that a brand new game is in the works. The task also requires that the candidate has a deep knowledge of an AAA environment.

In addition, the position also demands experience on MMO, suggesting further that the fourth game will possibly boast MMO-themed features. However, the extent of this alleged theme and how it will pan out in the new game remains to be seen.

Moreover, the mention of the franchise’s future in hiring the creative director strongly points toward the making of the next title.

Blizzard Entertainment has not yet confirmed any of these things, so until it’s officially announced, fans must take this with a pinch of salt.

Diablo 3 double XP

More on Diablo news, the eleventh season of "Diablo 3" will start soon. It is slated to go live on July 20 and the game developer already confirmed the start times for North America, Europe, and Asia. Players will be able to take on new seasonal conquests that offer exotic rewards, cosmetic loot and more.

Blizzard also rolled out Patch 2.6.0 hotfixes last week after some delay and to compensate for it, a Double XP weekend has been announced and will be available this weekend. It will begin today, July 14 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time and will conclude on Monday, July 17 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time.
