Diablo Immortal: Fans Loudly Deny Blizzard's New Mobile Venture!

Blizzard to Make Mobile Games for All of its IPs

The User Interface that will be in Diablo Immortal looks similar to previous titles but simplified for a touch-screen.

At BlizzCon, Blizzard announced an all-new Diablo game for mobile devices called Diablo Immortal.

But, if you're among the upset fans, don't worry because Blizzard highlighted the fact that more Diablo surprises are on their way and not all of them are going to be for mobile. "Some of them are with external partners like Diablo Immortal; many of them are being developed internally-only, and we'll have information to share on those in the future". Diablo: Immortal was a massively disappointing reveal for me too, and it's one that felt borderline tone deaf to a primarily PC community when given the spotlight at BlizzCon - an event that historically caters to Blizzard's most dedicated fans - without even a casual mention of what else might be coming.

Given the "Cancel Diablo Immortal" petition on Change.org has nearly reached 35,000 signatures, we can not say for certain if these analysts' predictions are accurate or pipe dreams.

Brack said mobile is a "very significant opportunity" for Diablo as it relates to the game's reach and presumably its revenue potential.

Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell had participated in an interview with GameSpot in which he has revealed that the company now has no plans for Warcraft 4.

The four main franchises of Blizzard are Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch. "One of the things that we've said is we have multiple teams working on multiple different projects for the Diablo community", he added.

This was initially released on PC before it got ported to mobile.

GameSpot went hands-on with Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon, and editor Alessandro Fillari was surprisingly impressed by the game in this early stage. It's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model.

The announcement of Diablo: Immortal was met with an immediate backlash from fans, who had been lead to believe the announcement of Diablo 4 would be happening instead.
