Blizzard has revealed its BlizzCon 2018 merchandise and a few of the items bear the name “Diablo Reign of Terror,” which may indicate a potential leak of the title of a new game in the Diablo franchise.
The BlizzCon 2018 sale, in which purchases are only available to ticket and virtual ticket holders until October 18, has three items, a poster and two shirts, that have the “Diablo Reign of Terror” moniker and raise the question of what that new title could mean.
Blizzard has already revealed that BlizzCon 2018, which begins on Friday, November 2, will feature a panel called Diablo: What’s Next and it has teased some big news as the description reads, “Join the Diablo team as they discuss of what’s in store for the heroes of Sanctuary.”
While it’s been six years since Diablo III first released, Blizzard has confirmed it has “multiple Diablo projects in the works,” and that “some of them are going to take longer than others, but we have some things to show you later this year.”
BlizzCon 2018 will also coincide with the launch of Diablo III: Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch on November 2, and Blizzard reportedly said that, in regards to Diablo III enabling cross-platform play, “it’s a question of when, not if.”
Whether or not Reign of Terror ends up being the title of a new Diablo game or expansion, we won’t have too long to wait for the truth as BlizzCon 2018 is less than a month away.
