A while back we heard about Blizzard Entertainment hiring some people for an unannounced Diablo project. Back then, it wasn't clear whether this new project will be anything to write home about. However, according to the new official “The Future of Diablo” video, something big Diablo-related is indeed on the horizon, with official reveals coming later this year. Check it out:
The video also mentions the latest Diablo III: Reaper of Souls season, so if you're interested in that, here's a brief overview:
Season 14 begins soon! For those among you who enjoy the fresh start a Season brings, we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect before you race out the gate—and Season 14 will be kicking off a new experiment we hope you will all enjoy.
New Season Theme
Starting with Season 14, we’re introducing a new seasonal concept—themes. Throughout the next Season, we’ll be embracing our inner goblin and celebrating the Season of Greed. For the duration of Season 14, all Treasure Goblin spawns will be doubled. This means that each time you encounter a Treasure Goblin in the wild, they’ll be accompanied by an exact duplicate of themselves for two times the loot, chaos, and fun!
There are a few important details to keep in mind with this effect:

- This does not affect goblins encountered via Bandit Shrines, Goblin “Rift” packs, or in the Realm of Greed
- Duplicate Whimsydale portals created by the Rainbow Goblin will enter the same instance of Whimsydale
- The Insufferable Miscreant is not affected by this buff; this is intended
In addition to doubling up on everyone’s favorite treasure-thieving troublemakers, other celebrations may spring up across the globe as we kick off this exciting new Seasonal concept. Be sure to keep a close eye on Twitter and Facebook for more information as we move into Season 14!
New Cosmetic Rewards
As per tradition, Season 14 will introduce new cosmetic rewards, obtainable by progressing through the Season Journey.
In addition to the Boots and Pants slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, a brand-new series of portrait frames themed around the enigmatic Tal Rasha will be available. For the nephalem hero who wants to embody the spirit of Justice, a brand-new pennant dedicated to everyone’s favorite archangel will also be available. Just remember—you cannot judge Justice itself!
Season Journey Rewards
If you’ve been diligently slaying demons for the past few Seasons and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier:
- Complete a level 70 Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes
- Complete Greater Rift 60 solo
- Kill Greed on Torment XIII
- Kill the Butcher at level 70 in Torment XIII in under 30 seconds
- Reforge a Legendary or Set item
- Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem
- Level three Legendary Gems to 55
- Complete two Conquests
