Diablo IV also sees a sizeable leak of footage

Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 delay

It’s a leaky start to the week

One major game has already seen a major leak of info, and now it looks like another is joining the lineup. A leak of early footage of Diablo IV has been making the rounds, showing off more of the RPG in action.

Spotted by sites like PC Gamer, a Reddit user linked some footage from a filesharing site which seems to have footage from a private test build of Diablo IV.

We’ve looked at the footage to verify its existence and yes, it sure does look like Diablo. Alongside the giant watermarks plastered across the video, it’s got shops, towns, and placeholders.

We reached out to Blizzard for confirmation of the footage’s validity and comment.

Numbers go up

It was a notable weekend for leaks, as a massive pile of Grand Theft Auto VI footage also found its way online. Rockstar confirmed the leak’s validity this morning, adding a statement addressing the leak.

“We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned, and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations. We will update everyone again soon, and of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready.”

Unlike GTA, we’ve seen quite a bit of Diablo IV through various previews and trailers. Still, a leak’s a leak, and this puts some footage out without any context.

Blizzard has not commented on the leak as of this writing. The studio has released an update on Diablo IV, however. An endgame closed beta is on the way, with direct invites rolling out using gameplay data.

Diablo IV is still a ways off, at the very least until next year. And a lot has been happening over at Activision Blizzard as well.
