UPDATED: Diablo 4 Rumors Light Up the Weekend Internet

UPDATED: Diablo 4 Rumors Light Up the Weekend Internet

UPDATE: While Brevik has stated this morning that he personally is not working on a Diablo game, that doesn't actually negate a Diablo game being announced at Blizzcon.

There has been a lot of speculation (and hope), but I'm not working on the Diablo franchise currently or in the near future#sorry#muchlove

Over the weekend, the rumor mill kicked into high gear with a report that originated with BlizzardWatch.com after a series of Twitter posts by Dave Brevik seemingly hinted at big happenings for Blizzcon that will be prominently featuring Diablo's 20th anniversary. Speculators have torn into an image posted by Brevik made after he and Diablo series co-developer Bill Roper spent time at the Blizzard campus in Southern California.

In the Tweet, Brevik posted a photo of the constellation of Libra leading to forward reaching thought that it is connected to Diablo in some way, perhaps even a Diablo 4 announcement at next month's Blizzcon. 

There’s a fair amount of speculation as to why Brevik chose to tweet a picture of the constellation Libra with his tweet; some argue it points to November and BlizzCon. However, when talking Astrology, Libra covers September 22 through October 22, so that connection is tenuous at best. Libra may end up being a codename. Or, for all we know, Brevik simply likes the picture.

Besides what is said above, others have guessed that Libra, a variation on the Scales of Justice, is also a representative symbol for Tyrael, Archangel of Justice.

For 20 years, Diablo-like games have evolved & surprised us. I'm proud to be the adviser for the game that pushes this genre to new heights. pic.twitter.com/LIT3i0UwJv

What do you think? Do you think Diablo 4 or some other vision for the Diablo series will be announced? Do you think that Brevik and Roper may make a return to the IP and Blizzard? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
