When Blizzardfinally revealed the long-rumored remaster with Warcraft III: Reforged, fans of the classic strategy game rejoiced but what makes this even cooler is how much the actual community was involved with the process. "Leading the invasion of Sanctuary is the demon known as Skarn, Herald of Terror - Diablo's most powerful lieutenant - who now rallies a new demonic army", according to Blizzard.
As for mobile gameplay, Blizzard says it developed the touchscreen experience to "feel completely natural", including directional controls, simple skill activation, and a native Battle.net UI. It has 400 likes and nearly 10,000 dislikes. Well, Blizzard announced Diablo Immortal for mobile and everyone got pi**ed off. Well, either that, or some absolutely top notch trolling.
It will also feature new locations, such as the Shassar Sea and will feature an impressive nine outdoor zones that are all accessible to gamers. Diablo Immortal will pit players against Diablo's older brother Bael as they journey across various locales, including the classic Frozen Tundra and the new jungle island Bilefen.

Diablo started out as a PC game, but Diablo III (originally released in 2012) has made its way onto the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and now Nintendo Switch. The trailers also confirm that Diablo Immortal is a joint development project between Blizzard and NetEase.
Right now, all we know is that Diablo Immortals is coming soon.
