Ever since the release of the Nintendo Switch in March 2017, gamers have been wondering what games will be brought to this rather revolutionary console. Some prayers have been answered, some have been denied, and some remain in a shroud of mystery…and a tweet from Blizzard definitely falls in the last category.

'Diablo 3' is coming to Switch…or is it?

On February 28 the official Blizzard Twitter put out this tweet which was a video of someone switching a “Diablo” light on and off with the caption “Sweet Dreams."

Many people interpreted this to mean that “Diablo 3,” Blizzard’s hack and slash action role-playing game would be coming to the Switch, causing many fans to become excited.

However, Blizzard quickly killed these rumors. A Blizzard spokesperson told several gaming news sources including Eurogamer and Polygon that these rumors were simply…well, rumors.

“We can assure you we’re not that clever… It was meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce.”

Heartbreaking for sure, but this doesn’t mean we’ll never see “Diablo 3” on the Switch. This could just mean that Blizzard has a marketing plan and simply don’t want to ruin it with one tweet… or that while they’re not currently working on porting the game that it could be a future project for them. "Diablo 3" was released six years ago Blizzard has released "Diablo 3" to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 in 2013, and the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X the next year.

They later updated their game for the two systems and in 2017 introduced the new Necromancer class. Their 13th season of seasonal hero play brought new gear and cosmetics.

We do know however that Blizzard does want to port at least two of their games: "Hearthstone" and "Overwatch," but they did express the difficulty with porting the later.

Though Jeff Kaplan, Blizzard’s game director, seemed open-minded to the possibilities when discussing it on Reddit.

Master marketers or merely mischief makers?

In reality, whoever is running Blizzard’s Twitter is probably just being a tease. This isn’t the first time a Blizzard game was supposedly teased for a Switch release (and it probably won’t be the last).

The day before the Nintendo Switch console was to be a released they put out this tweet.

Will we ever see any Blizzard game ported to the Switch? Answer: Probably.

Will the person or people running Blizzard’s social media ever stop playing with our emotions? Answer: Not a chance.
