Is Blizzard bringing Diablo to the Nintendo Switch?

You can find the Tweet below where a Diablo night lite is switched on a handful of times with no other context other than the text portion of the tweet that reads: "Sweet Dreams".

"We can assure you we're not that clever", a spokesperson for Blizzard Entertainment said via email.

Former director of production at Capcom and PlayStation executive Adam Boyes has asked Monster Hunter World publisher Capcom to let his new team port the game to the Nintendo Switch. "[It was] meant to be a fun community engagement piece".

Check out the official Switch - Or Die Trying website for more information on the game. Diablo III also received some new content a year ago, with the addition of the Necromancer class. "We have nothing to announce".

Would you play Diablo 3 on Switch? Blizzard later updated the game for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, and it released an entirely new playable class, the Necromancer, last year.

I doubt we'll hear anymore about this project until Blizzard is ready to show the game running.

It would seem that Blizzard isn't quite done with the Diablo 3 console ports.

Our art style up north was different than the art style from the guys down [at Blizzard South], and so in a lot of ways it was much more like Diablo II-looking than it was what Diablo III ended up looking like. But the fact that this may be getting teased suggests that an announcement or launch date shouldn't be too far off.

Payday 2 is now available for Nintendo Switch after it already released for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
