Good news – Diablo IV is very much in production.
Development began in late 2013/early 2014 when Blizzard brass decided to cancel Diablo III’s second expansion. The feeling at the time was that Diablo III had been a “giant frack up” and that it was time to move on to the next major game in the series.
Unfortunately, Diablo 4 has run into its own problems.
The original vision for Diablo 4 was essentially Blizzard’s take on Dark Souls. A gritty, challenging gothic action game, featuring over-the-should third-person camera.
Unfortunately, this version of the game “was not shaping up at all,” and in 2016 Diablo 4 was rebooted with original director Josh Mosqueira being replaced by design director Luis Barriga.
The current version of Diablo 4 is reportedly a return to series fundamentals, with an isometric viewpoint and a new art style that “embraces the darkness.” Basically, the much-maligned stylized, colorful graphics of Diablo III have been replaced with a more dark, realistic, “gross” look.
Development is still early (don’t expect the game until 2020 at the earliest), with certain aspects like online integration and monetization still up in the air.
That said, there’s said to be plans for some light MMO elements, like a hub where players can meet up before embarking on quests.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood
was first announced by Paradox Interactive and Focus Home Interactive in January 2017.
Alain Falc, Bigben’s CEO, said:
“We are thrilled to have reached this agreement which considers, in an equitable way, the different parties’ investments.
This will allow Cyanide to keep the ball rolling on the game’s development and to give its numerous fans a really unique experience, in a universe that gamers are very fond of.”
Shams Jorjani, VP Business Development at Paradox Interactive, and interim manager at White Wolf, added:
“The intense action and desperate supernatural danger of Werewolf is a perfect fit for BigBen. And this is happening at the best time, because of our renewed focus on brand management and licensing.
This allows us to give our partners exactly what they need to develop amazing customer experiences in their licensed products.
Video games always have been a key pillar to White Wolf’s brand strategy: they’re an incredibly powerful medium for great World of Darkness stories! So, we are looking forward very much to this partnership, and to many others, in the months and years ahead.”
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is the first action-RPG game adaptation of the iconic role-playing game.
“Become Cahal, a banished werewolf, forced to return to the aid of his endangered clan and master the devastating Rage within him to punish all those that would pollute, destroy, and corrupt our Mother Earth, Gaïa.
On his bloody quest for redemption, Cahal will play a pivotal role in the Great War of the Garou against Pentex, a powerful corporation whose activities are upsetting the balance of nature.”

Final Fantasy VII Remake is progressing well, says Square Enix
Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura has moved to clear up misinformation surrounding the game, which has lead to speculation that the game isn't even in development yet.
Speaking with Famitsu magazine (via Siliconera), Nomura-san clarified that previous comments about Kingdom Hearts 3 being the 'focus' for the time being is from a PR perspective, not a development one. In other words,
Final Fantasy VII Remake still chugging along just fine. Well, if fine means three-and-a-half years after its announcement, that is.
'There’s been some misinformation regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake in some parts of the Internet so I wanted to touch up on that a little,' said Nomura.
'That [speculation] is not official. As I said during E3, development is going favourably. I just wanted to say that the current PR priority is Kingdom Hearts III [...]
but after that it’ll be Final Fantasy VII Remake, so please don’t worry.'
Square Enix has previously said that it is looking at the possibility of revisiting other games in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, although nothing has been set in stone at this point.

Alien: Blackout Has Been Trademarked by 20th Century Fox !!
Alien: Blackout has been filed for a trademark by IP holder 20th Century Fox. The trademark also seems to be strictly aimed at an upcoming video game.
Computer game discs; software, namely, game software, computer game and video game software, downloadable computer game software, downloadable mobile application software used for playing electronic games and streaming audiovisual and multimedia content in the fields of games and entertainment, interactive game software, and downloadable software used for playing electronic games and streaming audiovisual and multimedia content regarding science-fiction, action, adventure, drama, and music; downloadable software featuring entertainment information regarding science-fiction, action, adventure, drama, and music.
Providing on-line computer games; providing electronic games services by means of the internet; entertainment services, namely, providing interactive online computer games utilizing communication networks, including global communication networks.
Alien: Blackout could be a number of things.
Fans of Alien: Isolation have been patiently waiting for a sequel since that game released over four years ago, but last year Eurogamer sources commented that the developers at Creative Assembly were not working on a new Alien title.
With regards to Creative Assembly itself, we know from the British studio’s own job listings that they are busy working on a tactical first-person shooter game.
This would be a major departure from Alien: Isolation, a survival horror title where players had to rely solely on stealth to avoid being slaughtered by the Alien.
If Creative Assembly is not working on Alien: Blackout, then this could very well be the Alien shooter game announced in early 2018 to be in development at Cold Iron Studios, founded by former Cryptic developers.
Either way, the timing seems to suggest a possible reveal at the upcoming The Game Awards 2018, hosted by Geoff Keighley at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, with the ceremony due to take place on December 6th.
