Blizzard Planning to Bring More IPs to Mobile Devices

Blizzard president on Diablo Immortal: "We want awesome mobile games and we think this could be one of them”

Blizzard  Activision announces Diablo Immortal for iOS

It was odd. 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. Cheng was indeed there to announce a new game in the "Diablo" just wasn't the one that fans wanted.

The one positive out of the furore surrounding Blizzcon and the reveal of mobile game Diablo Immortal is that at least we did get confirmation that Diablo 4 is real, even if it wasn't quite in the way that Blizzard originally intended.

Blizzard has responded to the backlash.

A pulled video allegedly was going to simply confirm that Diablo 4 is in development, but not ready to be shown. "Blizzard has said now, that they are working on multiple Diablo projects".

Diablo: Immortal is a massively multiplayer mobile spin-off for the series, being developed in partnership with NetEase. And many have suggested the outcry could have been avoided if Blizzard had accompanied Immortal's unveiling with news of the next mainline Diablo game. Pre-registered players are eligible to participate in future beta tests and earn in-game rewards, as well as receive news and updates.

"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".

As usual, the developer had a variety of announcements revolving around their games as well as some of their partner games.

Yes, Blizzard is going to actually release this cereal but whether that will extend outside of the USA remains to be seen. As a result, many Diablo fans were expecting something meatier than a mobile game from BlizzCon, the ultimate gathering of diehard and overwhelmingly PC-focused Blizzard fans. But, yeah, Diablo Immortal has created some interesting division, though it's still likely to arrive next year and find a pretty strong audience. "We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that 'good things come to those who wait, ' but evil things often take longer".

So this past weekend wasn't the greatest one for Blizzard Entertainment.

Let me preface this with a short story: Imagine a world, where someone invented a commodity, which made clean drinking water available inside your place of living, without the need of running to the source of said clean drinking water, something like a river, if you will.

It seems like Blizzard is riding Red Dead Redemption 2's hype as they revealed a new character for Overwatch named Ashe.
