Blizzard Has More Diablo Projects in Works & Will Release More Mobile Games

Blizzard landed itself in a bad situation over the weekend after choosing to close out its Blizzcon mainstage announcements with Diablo Immortal, a mobile spin-off.

The analyst said the disappointing reaction made him less hopeful about the company's future mobile opportunities. While the likes remain consistent, comments and dislikes appear to fluctuate.

According to us, Blizzard should've expanded Diablo 3's limitations.

"While we won't be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show".

Reddit is the main avenue for video game aficionados to gripe about perceived wrongs, and that's where many "Diablo" fans are venting their frustration. There are caveats but I'll go into those further down, because I got the chance to speak to Blizzard about Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon. Although Blizzard spoke about giving Diablo Immortal a try and attempting to reach a global audience, the rest of us don't care.

Even though we do not have a date for the official release of Diablo Immortal for iOS and Android, we do have some good news. Younger folks now, many of them, mobile is their primary gaming device.

Yeah, everything seems bleak at the moment, but Blizzard did say multiple projects are in the works, and they've said it numerous times before, so it's a given that one of these is Diablo IV or another core Diablo game. We just play games, and a lot of us play mobile games.

Both Blizzard co-founder, Allen Adham explained in an interview that the studio was waiting for scornful remarks from fans but they were not expecting it to be this enormous. "We've also seen this before".

And now there's Diablo Immortal, which is still in development for smartphones.

Previous games have had players descend, level by level, into an underworld crammed with all manner of monsters, treasures and equipment, ending with a powerful evil demon that must be slain.

"The way I've been kind of looking at the mixed comments is what those folks are really saying is they desperately, passionately want the next big thing".

"There are actually two distinct [Diablo] teams", Adham told Kotaku.

"I think scepticism is very healthy. So hopefully we'll get there".

While we wait for more confirmed Diablo news, check out all of the news and trailers we saw at BlizzCon 2018.
