Following yesterday’s update from David Brevik we all got rather excited, but perhaps it was a little too soon because David has just posted this tweet confirming no Diablo involvement.

Bill Roper also confirmed no involvement.
Lots of speculation about my coming back to Blizzard to work on the Diablo franchise. Would be an honor but just rumor. Thanks for the love!

So there you have it. Despite yesterday’s tease, he’s not involved with anything to do with Diablo. The question remains, what is he involved with? It’s still not clear for who or what he will be advising , it was naturally assumed it would be Blizzard based on his tweet.
I guess we are going to have to sit this one out and wait for some more concrete news.
