These two speculations will be officially publicized by BlizzCon this year, and most people believe that they are the key products of Blizzard. Recently, there have been new clues: Open Blizzard's official job posting page, you can find two more positions: "Diablo" has not announced the concept of conceptual designers and role designers! This inevitably allows players to expect this "Diablo 4" called "Fenris".
Looking back at the 2018 BlizzCon Blizzard Carnival, when Blizzard announced the "Diablo: Immortal" mobile（Diablo Immortal Gold） game on the finale stage, it triggered a series of public relations crisis and fans' dissatisfaction. "Diablo 4" on the PC is the current top priority, both players and the official need this game.
From the position point of view: the chief role designer needs to conceptualize, model and structure the undisclosed Diablo project; the chief concept designer is to lead the entire concept team to create a unique artistic concept for the project, and Improve existing content and existing designs. Recruiting the role of the chief leader, indicating that Blizzard may be dissatisfied with the current concept and design, is in urgent need of improvement.

Those who are familiar with the game industry should understand that there is a concept that a game has a DEMO version and the game has been completed, and there may be a long way to go.
Moreover, the report of "Le Monde" also said: "Diablo 4" and "Overwatch 2" will not be officially launched in 2020. This means that the two games will have to wait until 2021 at the earliest. With such a long time, Blizzard should be able to create the "Diablo" that the player is satisfied with. Blizzard has been in constant trouble in recent years.
