There was never any real question that Diablo IV was going to be a huge hit. The Diablo franchise has a huge fan base with three previous mainline installments that are now action-roleplaying classics, and there was little reason to think the fourth installment would be anything less than fantastic.

The critical reception confirmed this, as seen in our Diablo IV review roundup, with the game getting 9 and 10 review scores across the board.
