Following up from BlizzCon this week, Diablo IV‘s game director, Luis Barriga, took a moment to talk to fans in a new blog entry. There isn’t a ton here, just simply talking about the feedback they’ve been getting as they took a week to process it all. But we do know there’s going to be an update coming in February 2020, to what extent it will be is unknown at this point. Here’s a snippet from the blog.
We’ve been taking this week to assess and discuss our takeaways from BlizzCon, and we love all the deep discussions happening around the art, features, systems, and world of Diablo IV. We’re also excited about a cool update we’re planning for you in February of next year. It will be the first in a series of quarterly updates where we’ll share behind-the-scenes looks at our progress going forward.
We also know that one topic is burning hotter than the rest. We want you to know that we are having the same conversations about items and stats that you are having—whether on the official discussion threads or external sites, we read it all! Getting this right is at the top of our minds, and in the coming weeks our lead systems designer David Kim will provide a few clarifications, share some of his thoughts, and address some of your open questions. We hope you check it out and let us know what you think.
