Diablo 3 was released on May 15th of 2012 for Xbox 360, Ps3 and PC. The game has since been ported to newer consoles and has received special editions for all platforms except for Nintendo’s products.
All of that could change very soon. Last week, Blizzard posted a mysterious message, which most fans interrupted as a subtle announcement of Diablo 3 coming to the Nintendo Switch.
After Blizzard heard about the fan-theory created due to their post, they quickly squashed the rumors with an official response. “As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch,” a spokesperson of Blizzard said.
The confusion of Diablo fans didn’t stop there. Conflicting reports are still claiming that Diablo 3 will still be released for the Nintendo Switch in the near future. Eurogamer’s sources are still claiming that a Diablo 3 port is still in the works.
Of course, the statement from Blizzard does not directly deny that a Diablo 3 port is in the works. The statement merely says that Blizzard does not have plans to announce the game yet. Until Blizzard completely denies that there will be no version of Diablo 3 coming to the Nintendo console, fans will be anticipating its release.
