According to PC Gamer, Diablo designer David Brevik said past year: "If they do a Diablo 2 Remaster, it's going to be hard to make it feel exactly like the same game". Moreover, the candidate will work directly with level design to build atmospheric dungeons with a focus on composition, detail and mood, while ensuring that the gameplay space is readable, and will author environmental assets for a modern pipeline including modeling, and texturing assets for the Diablo World.

Although no official announcement has been made, a job advertisement looking for a Dungeon Artist at Blizzard has confirmed that a new Diablo project is in the works.
RPG fans rejoice: game developer Blizzard Entertainment's job listings reveal that an "unannounced Diablo project" is on the cards.
The Diablo games are probably the best dungeon crawlers on the market today, and it's good and, well, pretty obvious that Blizzard will continue the franchise.
You can read an excerpt from the job listing which mentions the project below.
Hopefully the unannounced project is Diablo IV and not another Diablo III expansion. In a statement to PC Gamer, a Blizzard representative said, "We're always exploring different ideas at Blizzard". That still be a possibility, even if a seemingly slim one, or, in a twist of fate this newest addition from Blizzard could end up being the Diablo on Switch that so many people have asked for. Survival? Let us know!
