Diablo 3 was a terrible game.

Compaired to what is expected, and comeing off of the high that was Diablo II.......Yes? Terrible... if compaired to D2.

On its own? its a "decent" game in the genre, but no longer the king of it.
Path of Exile feels like a much better experiance if your into these types of games.

Grim Dawn + TouchLight are pretty good too.
Diablo 3 was a letdown, which is probably a better word usage than terrible.

I hope Overwatch 2 is being designed as a next-gen game, but I doubt it is if they are announcing it now instead of at the next BlizzCon, best we can hope for is a cross-gen, though cross-gen will still hold the graphics back quite alot. I also really hope that Overwatch 2 has a singleplayer campaign, Overwatch fans have been begging for one ever since Overwatch released. They're going to need to do big things with Overwatch 2 like a campaign and removal of lootboxes in favor of direct purchase microtransactions if they want to win back fan support after all of the recent missteps. 

The rumours floating around about Overwatch 2 right now are that it will be PvE focused. What remains to be seen is if the original will be "attached" to OW2 or if they'll co-exists side by side.

I own ow on pc but never played it more than 1 hour, I got bored to death in that 1 hour. ow2 would be, at least for me, the wrong way to rekindle my interest. they should extend the old game with new maps, mechanics, heroes and crossplay.

They have done that. There have been maps, heroes and modes added to the game since launch. The only thing missing is crossplay.



Signature goes here!

Diablo II Remake or not interested really. Update the graphics, add some quality of life features like a shared stash, more secure online to prevent duping and hacks, and add some extra late game content. Surely even modern Blizzard can manage to do that without fucking up.

Literally all they have to do. Diablo 2 is one of my favorite games of all time and i can still go back to it and enjoy it. The only thing that didn't really age well is the graphics which are honestly not that bad but a remaster would be great. Maybe add some items and events like Ubers or even a new class idk.

The 20th anniversary of the game is next year in June, i ca totally see them releasing the game that month to give something while they working on Diablo 4, which it's obvious they HAVE to announce it this year. They had to even before but now with the bad PR and Diablo immortal like if they don't it's going to be too much bad press for the company. So i'm not expecting much except like a teaser and a title design.

I agree, i can't understand how they managed to make D3 this bad and like de-evolve in so many ways 10 years after diablo 2. It feels like Disney's SW trilogy to me, they kinda tried to reboot it for casual and it didn't work then tried to reach back to the hardcore fanbase that already left by adding new stuff but it just makes the whole thing a mess.

They really just should go back to the roots, use the perfect system that Diablo 2 used and change it a little to make it more modern like shared stash.

Personally, I can't wait for overwatch 2. It's going to be more expandable in terms of game modes, as the original game's engine is fairly limited. There's plenty of reason to make an overwatch 2. I just hope the content carries over from the first game. Of course they'd have to upgrade a lot of the old skins and... Now that I think about it, would be really expensive for blizzard to do that for free... But it would be nice to get something like that.



I think Blizzard should focus on something new for warcraft. I personally would be much more hyped about Warcraft IV.

Diablo 2 Remaster on Switch would be a day one for me.

Don't care, boycotting this shitty freedom hating company.

Count me in.

D4 is likely to be yet another rehash and a total grindfest, while being heavily dependant on just gear alone, not skills and talent choices, while OW2 will likely be a duplicate of Fornite 2, where it's just some new skins and a few new maps. Couldn't give two shits about some magical new PVE focus, because we know Blizz is all about dat esports actions. Not falling for that promise twice.

Diablo 4 would have to go back to its roots, and pretend Diablo 3 didnt happend, for me to get excited about it.

I want skill trees + character builds back, and want more meaningfull item choices than D3 had.
In D3 every item was built like item level x = x amount of stats, only differnt between them is which attributes.
The uniques and set armors were boring lazy work... Which is how most of diablo 3 felt to me.

This. The simplifying the skills/character building was a detriment to Diablo 3's replay-ability for me... That and the maps weren't truly randomly generated, so you weren't getting a "Different experience" every play through.

Diablo is the type of game where you make multiple run throughs, it needs to be kept interesting and fresh as much as possible.

The bright side is... I did make a sizable profit on the game thanks to the Auction house before they threw that away, so it wasn't a total loss.

The Art style needs to get back to being dark and gritty as well, not the cartoonish style that plagues it's current titles.

Overwatch was a game that was light on content from the very beginning... And was just a loot-box money spinner.
It would have been better served being a game released at a lower price point to reflect that.

Even today, years after release it's not exactly dripping with content, almost 3 and a half years... 10 heroes, 9 maps. - Pretty poor IMHO.

Hopefully Overwatch 2 fixes that.

Maybe not new however Warcraft 3 is getting a proper Remaster due at the end of this year.

There are currently 31 heroes and 21 maps in Overwatch. Seeing how big of a success the game is with full price and loads of people still playing, I'd say that's plenty of content. Quality trumps quantity anyway.
