Is Blizzard Teasing Diablo 3 for Nintendo Switch?

Is Blizzard Teasing Diablo 3 for Nintendo Switch?

When pinged for question, a Blizzard spokesperson told Polygon via e-mail that the post was meant to be a fun community engagement piece. According to the source, Blizzard is "looking to implement local plays with multiple Switches, allowing you to team up for local co-op action as you run around Sanctuary to stop Diablo". Given that Blizzard hasn't said much about what the Diablo 3 team is up to, we won't be surprised to see it make its way to the Switch given how well received the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game were.

In truth, we can't say for sure that this is referencing an impending Switch release for Diablo 3, but then again, what else could it be?

Earlier this week Blizzard has tweeted a Diablo video that has had everyone wondering if the game finally getting a port for Nintendo Switch.

At this time this was just a simple rumor, with no words from any sources outside of this. Let us know your thoughts down below! Additionally, there was a gif of a nightlight of Diablo - the Lord of Terror - being turned off and on. And the Switch would be an ideal home for Blizzard's fare, even though the company denied the possibility of Hearthstone finding a home on the system.

Dr Jo Twist, chief executive of Ukie, added: "New hardware such as the Switch have driven retail sales, virtual reality hardware looks healthy and digital games across all platforms continue to grow", she added. The game's style would jell very well with the Switch's portable nature.

We will keep our eyes peeled for further developments on this one.
