Blizzard is known to let its games cook in the oven a little longer than most other game developers. Well over a decade passed between the releases of Diablo II and Diablo III but not all the games that the studio works on, see the light of the day. In fact, about half is interrupted.
Speaking to Game Inform at BlizzCon, Blizzard's executive producer Allen Adham participated that the studio has "about 50 percent success rate" when it comes to its projects.
But just because a game is canceled does not mean that the development was completely waste of time. Adham pointed to MMO Titan who eventually had some of its elements inserted in Overwatch . Several characters originated in the game, including Hanzo, Genji, Reinhardt, Symmetra, Torbjörn, Soldier 76, Bastion and Reaper. It would probably have been a completely different game, with director Jeff Kaplan saying that before the weapon was implemented, such as Tracer shot scanners from the eyes.
Hopefully, none of the projects Blizzard is currently working interrupted. We know that the studio will release Diablo: Immortal a mobile spin of the Action RPG series and it has been all but confirmed that a full-bodied fourth Diablo game is also in the works. We have heard reports that an announcement could have been scheduled for BlizzCon earlier this month, although Blizzard denied that such plans were ever in the works.
Blizzard's latest full version was Diablo III: The Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch, which bundles the bass game with the extension Reaper of Souls and all other previously released DLC. It's the first Blizzard game to come to a Nintendo platform in a decade, with the studio primarily sticking to PC, mobile and other consoles during that time.
For Overwatch fans using the public test region on PC, you can also try new Ashe ash right now. A competitor to McCree, makes the crime the use of a spear-action gun, dynamite and a robot buddy called B.O.B. who can cause destruction to the other team and never said that the earth was flat – at least we do not think he has.
