BLIZZARD TO SHUT DOWN IN 2022 AND COME BACK AS INSIGHT
- Blizzard’s lawsuit frenzy making it shut doors in 2022
- Comeback would be as Insight with important changes
- Overwatch 2 to be canceled and Diablo remake to take over
There’s some filtration that spells leakage, and BlizzardLeak is to blame: it seems that, due to the lawsuits dropped on Blizzard’s lap, it’s considering shutting down its doors in 2022 and making a comeback as Insight, with big changes in its franchises. Of course, this is leakage, so we have to wait until the whole damn dam officially breaks open.

REINVENTION IS THE GAME: BLIZZARD TO CHANGE THE COMPANY NAME
Through the MMOChampion portal, BlizzardLeak let us mortals know about the steps Blizzard is about to take in view of the harassment, abuse, and information withholding lawsuits that are currently on their plate, which (if you recall) have been leading to getting themselves silently and stealthily ditched by their sponsors (see our article Owl Loses Logos over Lawsuit.) Which leads to the tidbit letting us know the company is to be rebaptized as another company –namely Insight– starting 2022, although continuing to work as they currently are with Activision. This union will leave many vacant job positions which will be occupied by new faces. Reinvention is sometimes a biatch…
DIABLO FRANCHISE AS SHOWPIECE FOR INSIGHT
The Diablo franchise, a second-placer for many years, is rearing its head now. Apparently, it’s now going to be the new apple of Insight’s eye when the changeover takes over in 2022. This means there’s a remake on the way for Diablo 1 and Diablo Inmortal; this last one will also be upgraded for PC.
As leakage has it, Diablo IV would have up to 3 expansions planned for the future. But Diablo 1 would also be getting a makeover…er… remake, Resurrected-style. Plus, the controversial Diablo Inmmortal would also be hitting the PC platform at the request of a buttload of fans. There’s also a PvP game being worked on by the Diablo team, but we’ll leave that for later. For now, all we got is that Insight seems to be wanting a slice of the Genshin Impact pie, and will work on a videogame inspired with Genshin Impact elements: gatcha, RPG and MMO elements. It has been under development since 2020. Stay tuned, y’all.
WORLD OF WARCRAFT SAYS BYE IN 2023
The recent Blizzard lawsuit controversy has hit World of Warcraft the most. Again, according to the leakage, the MMO could be saying sayonara in 2023; the last WoW expansion –Shadowlands– would be extended two years until the arrival of Patch 10.0. After that, no more plans for World of Warcraft. There will be, however World of Warcraft for mobiles, very different from what we’ve seen for PC, but hey, it’s for the Chinese audience so we don’t get a say in this.
OVERWATCH 2 ALSO SAYS BYE IN 2022
After the bloodcurling news about Blizzard, there’s still a jawdropper left: Overwatch 2 is apparently getting ditched and canceled, because it is incapable of garnering the attention needed (this leakage is shitty af); with its cancelation, Insight would focus on small projects for mobiles based on the same franchise universe. Overwatch 1 would go on to spearhead the brand, but with no PvE.
To close off this leakage, we regret to inform you that Blizzcon 2022 is canceled and eyeing the online format heavily. So, to all things… wait.
