Diablo’s creators talk about Blizzard’s past and present, China, and Diablo 4’s reveal


That Blizzard president J. Allen Brack opened this year’s BlizzCon 2019 with an apology is proof that this year is one of the most controversial in Blizzard’s entire history. Despite the release of World of Warcraft Classic and the announcement of Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, the year was largely dominated by sweeping layoffs, cancelled games and esports leagues, and an international controversy involving Hong Kong Hearthstone pro Chung ‘Blitzchung’ Ng Wai.

When it was announced that Blizzard North’s founders and the creators of Diablo, David Brevik, Erich Schaefer, and Max Schaefer would be attending Path of Exile’s fan convention last weekend, it was a rare opportunity to talk to Diablo’s original creators about their opinions on Diablo 4, Blizzard’s latest controversies, and get some of their rare insights from working with Chinese publishers.
