Now, I'm sure it's not that, but, wouldn't it be hilarious if Blizz hired them because they lacked the staff they fired earlier.
I kinda feel sorry for the person in advance, people these days get crazy about blaming writers.
Now that is some interesting news!
Because they fired story writers? They did not.
I'm cool with this. D2:R is looking amazing so far so I can't wait to see how D4 turns out.
The central story, which tends to be the problem, will probably be decided by someone fairly up the totem pole. Additional writers will probably be there to write quest text and things like that.
I'm quite happy about this! Diablo II: Resurrected looks and feels amazing, so this bodes well for the future of Diablo IV 😈
