Diablo IV is released in a few days this June 6, 2023, after several beta testing phases that can be classified as successful, since they left a large number of happy players and the specialized gaming press waiting to play the final version and tell about their experiences in their reviews. This is why a recent round of questions from the game developers had the community very expectant, which in the end left some doubts about the way it was carried out.
Round of questions purportedly by Diablo fans and answered by Associate Game Director Joseph Piepiora and Art Director John Mueller in a video posted on the Future Games Show YouTube channel. Clip that caught the attention of some people, who realized that the questions were strangely specific, so they began to investigate if they were really asked by fans of the saga.

It was like this as a nick indie gamer and developer Philtacular, reviewed the social networks of each person who asked a question, which could be seen in the video, discovering that several of those who asked them were inactive users for up to 13 years or were accounts created a couple of days ago. As evidence, she left several screenshots on her Twitter account, hinting that the questions asked could have been prepared by the team.
And then, the Youtube channel left as a response to the controversy in the comments, saying that they got it wrong and that basically, the user IDs were randomly generated, to keep the original fans behind the questions anonymous.
A situation that is common to see in these videos since, with a set of questions prepared in advance, they can answer what they wanted to say and not find themselves with toxic questions, although this clearly generates mistrust among the Diablo community.
