[Updated: Blizzard Comments] Blizzard Teases Diablo 3 Switch Following Recent Switch Port Rumors
[Update] Since our original post, Blizzard has denied that their tweet is related to Diablo 3 on the Switch, and stated that it was purely a fun community engagement piece.
“We can assure you we’re not that clever,” a spokesperson for Blizzard Entertainment wrote to Polygon. “[It was] meant to be a fun community engagement piece. We have nothing to announce.”
