Hvis der er ét spil som fans verden over gerne vil opdateres på, så må det siges at være Diablo IV, der blev afsløret ved sidste års BlizzCon, men som vi siden ikke rigtig har set gameplay fra. Blizzard har dog været ganske åbne omkring spillets tilstand, og afslører dog nu at det hele skrider frem, til trods for besværligheder associeret med COVID-19.
Under det digitale GDC fortalte den nye studiechef, Rod Fergusson, at udviklingen skrider frem, men det var umuligt for ham at gå mere i detaljer end det.
"I had a full eight days in office. I started on a Tuesday and then the following Thursday, everybody was on work from home. It's been really hard actually, for me, because I think people who know me and have worked with me know that part of what I thrive on and do well in is [being] in the room with people, and talking, and trying to motivate and understand, and collaborating and those sorts of things. The push, kind of taking one of my sort of quote-unquote 'superpowers' and putting it behind a video screen, I found really hard. The fact that you see Hearthstone has shipped two expansions, and WoW is about to ship an expansion. And we on Diablo continue to—it's been challenging, but the team is just moving forward. So I've been really grateful—if I was going to do it, to be able to do it with Blizzard."
Det lyder ikke umiddelbart særlig sjovt, men i det mindste sker der noget. Du kan i øvrigt se gameplay fra spillet fra sidste år herunder.
