When a post called “Diablo 3 and Ongoing Support” appeared on the game’s website a couple of days ago, I feared the worst.
I thought the day had finally come, the day that Blizzard finally gave up on supporting its now seven year old action RPG. But no. Blizzard is, in fact, continuing to support Diablo 3 for the foreseeable future.
Thanks to the popularity of Themed Seasons, more are on the way. Season 16 was apparently just as popular as the Season 11, the first in which the Necromancer was available for use. And Season 17 is currently also proving to be popular. Along with more Themed Seasons, Blizzard also asserts that a new set for each class is in the works, as well as dozens of Legendary Powers. They’re sure to get any avid Diablo 3 fan back into the game.
Of course, there’ll be more class balance changes going forward, too. And Blizzard will continue with its one-week PTR approach that it trialled with Season 16, as well as better highlight changes made as a result of feedback. All of this ties in with the fact that Blizzard wants to be more communicative about Diablo 3. It wants to listen to fans and tell them what’s coming up. It wants to be more transparent. That can only be a good thing.
Diablo 3 is available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. You can read our review of the Switch version here.
