Today during BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard announced Diablo IV for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. And not long after the official announcement, the first-ever gameplay trailer was revealed, showing off the new "genre defining" action-RPG in action. Unfortunately, there's still no word of a release date, but it's presumably dropping sometime next year before the next-gen consoles hit. Further, there's a good chance Blizzard will wind up porting it to PS5 and Xbox Scarlett as well, but as of right now, this hasn't been divulged.
As you can see in the trailer, Diablo IV looks like more Diablo, but a bit darker than the previous game int he series, which is something Blizzard has said it's going for with the new installment. More specifically, it wants to bring the series back to its darker roots, and everything it's shown so far of the game certainly shows that. Further, everything its shown so far has fans excited.
