Diablo Immortal Is an Always-Online Game, Confirms Blizzard

  • That's a lot of dislikes

It was unusual. But again, the crux or at the very least the reasoning behind why some are understandably upset over the Diablo Immortal announcement is that fans have been waiting for a Diablo 4 PC/console sequel announcement for a while.

This is just one of the signals that the mobile game's reveal hasn't worked as someone at Blizzard might have hoped. Blizzard had a stellar lineup at the event, the opening preview event even featured an announcement from Bungie as they announced that Destiny 2 will be available for free on PC till 18 November.

The majority of the backlash comes from fans who were expecting a fully fledged Diablo title, and not a mobile title.

Instead, Blizzard attempted to temper fan expectations ahead of BlizzCon, writing that, "We now have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can't wait to tell you all about them...when the time is right". The analyst noted the Diablo Immortal game's release date is uncertain, given that the game isn't finished.

Diablo Immortal is one of the most infamous games of 2018 and it isn't even out yet. However, he noted that those players didn't get to play the game and when they do they will have a different opinion of the game. You can actually pre-register for the game right now by going to the Diablo Immortal website.

That said, Kotaku also initially reported that Blizzard had been planning to reveal Diablo 4 at BlizzCon but Blizzard denied this in an official statement.

Yes, Blizzard is going to actually release this cereal but whether that will extend outside of the United States remains to be seen. In fact, Blizzard Entertainment co-founder Allen Adham was supposed to be on stage to tease Diablo 4 by name in a video and insist that the game is not ready to show. "We love the way "Diablo" has brought millions of players around the world together to slay demons".

Kotaku could confirm the video was recorded and Diablo 4 is in active development.

Blizzard may want to rethink one of their announcements over the weekend.

Blizzard's Mark Cheng has since responded, saying that he doesn't "think mobile should be a dirty word". Why they didn't show it off at Blizzcon, however, is beyond me.
