With the rampant popularity of most Blizzard Entertainment games, it's pretty safe to assume that the company has been hard at work on Diablo 4 and a sequel to Overwatch for some time now, even if we still don't have any official confirmation. But a new report from Kotaku reveals a project we would've never guessed: a first-person shooter set in the StarCraft universe that anonymous sources likened to "Battlefield in the StarCraft universe."
According to three anonymous sources within Blizzard, the game was codenamed Ares and had been in development for two years using the same engine as Overwatch. "The team had built prototypes in which the player, as a Terran marine, could gun down Zerg aliens, and there were plans to experiment with playable Zerg as well," reads Kotaku's report. A few weeks ago, Ares was suddenly canceled so that employees could be moved to teams working on Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, which are suspected to be revealed at BlizzCon later this year.
Diablo is a great game series. I knew they would be working on a sequal. And Overwatch seemed to be pretty popular so that's great it's gonna get a number 2 as well. I bet they won't be released for a while tho maybe 2021.
