Diablo fans have finally received some long-awaited news from Blizzard during the 2022 Xbox Games Showcase Event. Diablo 4 is set to release in 2023. Blizzard also announced that the much-loved Necromancer would be joining the game, as well.
With the sour taste of Diablo Immortal still lingering in the mouths of mobile gamers, the announcement comes with an additional kick to the stomach. Diablo 4 was not announced for the Nintendo Switch. At present, the game is only coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles.
While no official reasoning has been given, it’s speculated that it comes down to two factors. Those are profitability and porting issues. Diablo 3 eventually made its way to the Switch in 2017. But that game isn’t as graphically intensive as Diablo 4 will be.
While not the best news for Nintendo gamers, there is at least some hope that the newest Diablo will find its way to their console sometime in the future.
If you’re looking for a way to scratch your Diablo itch or a new Blizzard title to erase the memory of Diablo Immortal from your mind, you have options. Diablo 2: Resurrected and Diablo 3 still boast a healthy fan base on the Switch.
Additionally, Blizzard has just confirmed that the free-to-play Overwatch 2 will release on the Switch on October 4th of this year.
