Diablo III has been doing rather well for Blizzard over the past few years – not only with a strong presence on PC, but also on consoles, with Reaper of Souls getting an expanded release and drawing in millions of fans. But a new listing on the ESRB indicates we could be getting an even bigger release.

According to the official ESRB website, a new rating has been listed for what's being listed as Diablo III: Eternal Collection for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

This follows up the Ultimate Evil Edition that came out for consoles, which included the original game and Reaper of Souls. More than likely, the Eternal Collection will come with all of this already, along with the confirmed Necromancer expansion, which just arrived last week for both consoles and PC.

The listing has since changed, but it looks like Blizzard could be planning some kind of announcement as soon as next week, when the Electronic Entertainment Expo rolls around. Fans will probably be wanting some kind of Overwatch-related news instead, but seeing a new Diablo III package that includes the Necromancer pack would probably be a treat for those that haven't picked it up yet.

As for what the Rise of the Necromancer pack includes, it'll come with the Necromancer class, as well as a variety of new cosmetics to choose from, two additional tabs to help you organize your stash, and two more character slots that will make it a little easier to organize things.

Though the Necromancer class doesn't have a release date yet, we could know more, again, come next week, and the Eternal Collection will likely be announced at the same time for a yet unconfirmed price. Blizzard certainly likes packaging their games with bonus goodies, so this is looking very likely. The real question is when we'll get it.

For now, fans can certainly enjoy the Diablo III game and the Reaper of Souls add-on that are available for a pretty reasonable price, as it packs hours of gameplay without the Necromancer content. If you haven't dug in yet, go for it.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
