Blizzard is pitching Diablo 4 as something you'll still be playing years into the future if it gets its hooks into you, and that will be thanks to a plethora of post-launch support. Alongside free content updates, the developer is currently producing two expansions, as confirmed by general manager Rod Fergusson.
In a new interview on the Kinda Funny Xcast, he explained (via PC Gamer): "As I sit here we're about to launch the main game, we're finishing up season one, we're working on season two, we're working on expansion one, we're kicking off expansion two… we're working on that now [laughs] and we haven't even launched the game." Perhaps surprisingly, it's suggested these two pieces of DLC could release quicker than we might think. The live service model allows Blizzard to pump out content at a faster rate than what was possible in Diablo III, Fergusson says.
Diablo 4 is already an incredibly large, meaty experience with the base game alone containing tens of hours of content. Only the live service approach kicks into gear with seasons and then DLC on top, this could well be your next Destiny 2 or Genshin Impact. Does that thought excite or scare you?
