A few months ago, a job listing on Blizzard's careers page hinted that a new Diablo experience was in the works. Diablo is an incredibly popular role-playing game which relies on exploring randomized environments and collecting loot to keep players engaged. However, it was unclear if this meant a new game or more DLC.
Today, Blizzard put out a new video on Twitter which reveals more about the future of the Diablo franchise. Aside from themed seasons like "Greed", Associate Community Manager Brandy Camel revealed that there are "multiple" Diablo projects in the works. Some of them are going to take longer than others. Camel stated that Blizzard might reveal what's in development later this year.

It's unclear what the multiple Diablo projects could be, but the one that's going to take longer to develop might be Diablo 4. Given the push to mobile gaming in recent years, there might also be a mobile version of the original Diablo or Diablo II in the works. At this point it's all speculation. We'll just have to wait until Blizzard is ready to announce what it has cooking.
What would you like to see from the developer? Maybe Diablo III will launch on Nintendo Switch? Let us know. It's great to see that Blizzard is ramping up development in the franchise, so we'll see many new experiences in the near future.

I would love Diablo I and II on mobile devices! Please bring it with achievements!
This, 100% this. Blizzard need to announce this so I can throw money at them and buy it, Diablo on my phone would be fantastic.
I would like them to create a real successor to Diablo 2. Diablo 3 was a spit in the face to diabloists.
It was diablolical. I'll get my coat.
