Blizzard Entertainment Reveals Diablo 4 will Have Annual Expansions and Continued Support Diablo 4, the latest game in the franchise, will have annual expansions, according to a recent interview by Dexerto with the game's general manager, Rod Fergusson. This will please many fans who plan to play the title for many years.

The Expansion Strategy Indicates Diablo 4 is in for the Long Haul Earlier Diablo games featured quality expansions and players have high expectations for this next installment. While we can't yet attest to the quality of future expansions, we can expect there will be plentiful. This is attributed to the decision to release an annual expansion model for Diablo 4.

In addition to the yearly expansions, quarterly seasons will also be part of the offering. Fergusson suggested that supporting Diablo 4 in the long term will help reestablish a bond with their audience, following an 11-year gap between Diablo 3 and its sequel. He was quoted as saying:

Looking at our quarterly seasons and annual expansions shows our focus for a live service. We have plans and storylines that extend into the future. Each season and expansion will progress, assuring we are invested for a long time. We are excited.

Given the positive reviews of Diablo 4 and the considerable time since the previous entry, all these revelations are encouraging news.
