Blizzard Teases Diablo III for Switch

Blizzard Teases Diablo III for Switch

While Blizzard says they have nothing to announce, the momentum for Nintendo's latest system, as well as support from devs like Bethesda, makes it so that Diablo 3 heading to the Switch is not an impossibility.

Blizzard on Twitter earlier this week shared a video of a demon-themed nightlight being turned on and off. A Diablo night light wouldn't warrant a full video from the team (although it is pretty fancy), so you'd probably be safe in guessing that its "switching" from on to off is indicative of an announcement coming from the developers sometime in the future. This side of the debate is backed up by a post made by South Park that said "Nin-ten-do". That flurry of speculation spawned two very active threads on the Nintendo Switch subreddit and the Resetera forums. "We have nothing to announce".

"We can assure you we're not that clever", a spokesperson for Blizzard Entertainment said via email.

If this rumor ends up being true, this will be the first time since the Nintendo 64 port of Starcraft that a Blizzard game has been officially been on a Nintendo system.

Blizzard loves to tease out information to eager fans.

I doubt we'll hear anything about this project until Blizzard is ready to show the game running in all its glory. After all, the likes of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition and Overwatch have found great success on PS4 and Xbox One in recent years.

Our art style up north was different than the art style from the guys down [at Blizzard South], and so in a lot of ways it was much more like Diablo II-looking than it was what Diablo III ended up looking like.

However, there is also a chance that the tweet is being misinterpreted.

Blizzard, however, denied any connection between the tweet and the launch of the last Diablo game on the hybrid console.
