Diablo IV is an online action role-playing game. The game is developed by Blizzard Entertainment. It comes under the Hack and slashes and Dungeon crawl genre.
In the past 23 years, three games of the series were only made and released. Each Diablo title comes after a long time, which is why there is a lot of hype when it releases.

Fergusson works as an industry veteran. In the past, he has worked with Epic Games, Irrational Games, and has last worked at The Coalition before joining Diablo Iv. However, he got only 8 days in office before him and the complete staff was turned to work from home.
In the live stream, Fergusson said: “I started Tuesday and then the following Thursday, everyone was work from home.”
