Would have been announced there, not one week earlier.

I could definitely live with that. I'd also be okay with a Druid character pack announced as well.

Well, they created a hype for Gamescom on purpose. It's very unlikely to be only D3 on Switch there.

It depends what is the number behind "multiple" from the video announcement:
1 - Clearly not possible
2 - They might have preferred to use the word "a few"
3 - This is what most people expect
4 - This would include the D3 DLC

So we have to see. HYPEEEEEEEEE!
They blew the news about NSwitch early so I hope for Druid DLC.

Most likely D4 is the project far away. So if one expects something else than D2 or D3 related, I'm expecting them to be disappointed.

Actually my understanding was that anything in dead last is a closer no one cares about so people have more time to check out the shops or anything they might have missed before heading home.
World Wide Announcement that Season 15 will have Trippe Goblins Theme.

Honestly dough, I hope it will be either D2 Remastered and/or D4 AKA Real D2LOD Successor that is based on all the best aspects of all 3 games.

Imagine D3 graphics pushed to the next level with higher resolution textures and "next-gen" visual effects, D1&D2 Mood, Setting and Music, D2LOD itemization and character development pushed to the next level, D1 Cathedral Dungeon located in the Diablo world as part of a massive quest-line. D2 style map generation but way bigger, D3 polish and fine-tuning, coupled with D2LOD complexity pushed to the next level. All this topped of with optional Open World vicious PVP with ripped off heads and ears and skulls as trophies that can be displayed in your "Hideout" or "Clan-Castles", Optional Item-For-Item Trading. *Drool* :)

The announcement of Diablo on switch might have been forced by the article on forbes, that was released prematurely and was removed shortly after that.
For all we know, Diablo on the Switch might have been the only thing Blizzard wanted to show on Gamescom.
Hopefully, the events might force their hand and they end up showing something, that might be worth playing.
Personally, I hope for D2:LoD HD...
What time one are those times going off of?

Well the only reason why we know about the switch right now is because Forbes screwed up and released an article way too early, which was subsequently taken down immediately when they realized it.

For all intent and purpose, we should have saw the announcement at Gamescom.

No, it is not. The Forbes article should have appeared a day later.

Besides the 18+ requirement this will force, developer heads will literally cost hundreds of PoE mirrors. Then the most important question will be how do you get close to a dev and lure him into a PvP battle haha.

That might have been the plan until Forbes jumped the gun.

My worst fear is that the "multiple Diablo projects" are:

1. D3 on twitch (obviously already confirmed).
2. Some sort of Diablo mobile game.

I'm not sure if everyone else, or even anyone else, shares my dislike of mobile "gaming", but, I really do not want to see Diablo in that market.
