As this year's BlizzCon draws closer, rumors about the existence of "Diablo IV" have been making rounds in the gaming community.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the first "Diablo" game, this fact alone is enough for many ardent fans to believe that Blizzard is cooking something up to celebrate this monumental occasion. To support this claim, some fans pointed to a preview of what is inside the goody bag given to BlizzCon attendees. One of the items included is a set of dices that sport a Diablo theme. According to GameSpot, one of the dices is a four-sided dice which led to theories about Blizzard referencing to D4 or "Diablo 4."

Keen-eyed fans have also discovered that once the dice is rolled, the three visible sides read 1-1-4. Some interpreted this number as 11-4 or Nov. 4, the first day of BlizzCon.

Despite these theories, the fans have nothing to support their claims as Blizzard has remained silent about it. Rumors about the existence of "Diablo 4" was recently revived when two former Blizzard employees, who are credited to have worked with the "Diablo" franchise, were reportedly seen to have visited the studio.

One of them, David Brevik tweeted that "For 20 years, Diablo-like games have evolved & surprised us. I'm proud to be the adviser for the game that pushes this genre to new heights."

Brevik's tweet has led some fans to believe that he might be working on a separate game with "Diablo" themes. Some believe that if this true, then the possibility of a "Diablo IV" game is just a rumor. There are some who believe that no new "Diablo" game is in development and Blizzard might be working on an expansion pack for the current "Diablo III" game.
