Sources at Eurogamer indicated there will indeed be a Diablo III port for Nintendo Switch this year. Such a Switch port is reportedly months away from announcement.
Speculation started last week with an innocuous tweet from Blizzard, showing a video loop of Diablo’s demonic mascot posing as a night light switching on and off. Despite the non-subtlety of the tweet, Blizzard representatives told Eurogamer, “As of now, we do not have any current plans to announce Diablo for Switch,” calling the tweet “a fun engagement piece”.

While Eurogamer’s sources confirmed Diablo III for Switch, they cannot confirm if the game’s expansions, Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer, will be included as well.
First launching in 2012 for PC, the everlasting dungeon crawler Diablo III has risen to console ports on PlayStation 3 and 4 and Xbox 360 and One. Blizzard has yet to return a comment to Eurogamer on the Switch port’s validation. Given the credibility of both Blizzard’s tweet tease and Eurogamer’s run or rumors in the past, a Switch port of Diablo III may yet come to being.
