I really hope this happens!

Sources: Yes, Diablo 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch

Last week, Blizzard set tongues wagging with an apparent tease for a Diablo game on Nintendo Switch. The image - of a Diablo night light being repeatedly switched on and off - felt fairly deliberate.

But then, after hours of fan excitement, an official response emerged from within Blizzard apparently designed to dampen down the flames: "As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch," a spokesperson told us.

So, what's going on? Well, while Blizzard makes its mind up, Eurogamer sources have told us that yes - the project is very much in production. And as you might expect, the game will be a port of Diablo 3.

Our sources could not confirm whether the game's Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions will be included - but at this point it would be surprising if they were not.

In its earlier statement, pouring cold water on the rumours, Blizzard described the Twitter post as simply "a fun engagement piece". Eurogamer sources with knowledge of the project told me they were surprised to see it, as the game's reveal remains several months off.

So, what did happen last week? It feels like a none-too-subtle social media tease blew up larger than expected - and while Blizzard frequently encourages speculation about its upcoming releases, Nintendo typically does not - and third-party Switch games have often been announced relatively close to their launch.

"We do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch" sure sounds like marketing speak for "Diablo III is coming to the Switch, but we're not ready to announce it."

It's an old rumor.

One that I hope is true, none the less.

I wouldn't hesitate to double dip for a portable Diablo III.

Yea, an old one...but holy cow (ha! get it?) it would be an amazing game to have on Switch. Blizz stuff is awesome.

To be fair, Eurogamer says a lot of things.

I'm not a Diablo fan (never played), but hey, if it's real I'll be happy for those fans.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

I played on PC. I platinum trophied it on PS4 and I'll happily do it all again and hopefully with some some Nintendo based armour skins. This Diablo rumour is the one I hope most is true. Would go down a storm on Switch.

I am pretty sure Blizzard shot down that rumor pretty quick, saying something like "we aren't that clever"

Personally I'd like to see Overwatch, Hearthstone and Diablo 3 all come to Switch from Blizzard.

Oops... I forgot about European notation for dates. I saw "6/3/2018" and thought it was June 3, but the story is apparently from March 6.

Sorry for the false alarm, everybody.

What they said was "We do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch," which is not the same as saying "We are not currently working on Diablo for the Switch."

Not sure on this one. I bought it on 360, then again on XB1 with the Reaper of Souls edition. So I'm not sure if I want to buy it a third time.
