The site noted that the sources didn’t confirm if the Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer expansions will be coming to Switch or not.
In related news, original Diablo designer, recently revealed that Diablo 3 would have been much more Diablo II-looking if Blizzard North had developed the game.
Our art style up north was different than the art style from the guys down [at Blizzard South], and so in a lot of ways it was much more like Diablo II-looking than it was what Diablo III ended up looking like.
However, Blizzard North was working on Diablo 3 at one point but, the game was scrapped and while Blizzard delivered a fresh new take on the game but, it was a buggy mess and littered with server issues.
Furthermore, another report has been making rounds on the internet suggesting that the game would be coming to Switch in 2019. Furthermore, the report suggests that the developers want to introduce local play with multiple Nintendo Switches.
