I asked Blizzard what it plans to do regarding aides in Diablo 4, and while they didn't reveal much but it appears that followers may join this roster in some point.Speaking to lead designer Adam Z.

    "We don't have anything to announce about the Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder Items-type follower that you hire - we'll stick with the campaign for now." It's all about the present.
