(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Less than a year after Blizzard released the Diablo 3 expansion, Reaper of Souls, rumors are flying about a new PS4 expansion that could be released next year.
In an interview with Videogamer earlier this year, lead producer Alex Mayberry discussed what in store for the future of the game, in terms of another expansion.
“We’re already planning out what the next content update will be but we’re not making, we’re still talking about what the long-view is for the franchise, mainly because we want to see how people react to Reaper. We want to make sure that we don’t get ahead of the community and start going down some road that won’t lead us to where we want to go,” said Mayberry.
“Every time you finish a game there are things that you didn’t get in that you wanted to get it, so there are a handful of things that we’re still looking for post-launch updates that we definitely want to make sure go in. Other than those things we want to see the community reaction, we want feedback.”
Mayberry noted that the development team finished their short term planning and now are focusing on the long term for the game.
“So we’ve done our short-term planning but this is months, not years. Now that we’ve got some short-term planning done we’re looking at the long view – what are we doing in the years to come with the franchise – and that’s all kind of up in the air right now.”
