Diablo Immortal isn't the only mobile game that Blizzard has planned

Diablo Immortal isn't the only mobile game that Blizzard has planned

It seems simple, but Blizzard likely could have diminished a lot of that anger by padding Immortal's announcement out with the confirmation that a more traditional Diablo game was on the way, similar to how Bethesda, Microsoft, and Nintendo introduced their mobile titles. It certainly felt like the main course was missing from dinner after Diablo: Immortal was given top billing at BlizzCon, but it's a claim Blizzard denies - which is the equivalent of being thrown a rope to pull yourself out of quicksand, but instead choosing to light the rope on fire.

Blizzard is right now one of the most happening gaming companies. The magnitude of the Diablo Immortal reveal's negativity has escalated much bigger than necessary, but even though that's the case, the response from Blizzard needs to be elevated, too.

While specifics weren't shared in the video, it sounds like we can expect some more mobile games in the coming years based on the worlds and lore of other Blizzard titles such as Warcraft, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm.

Despite Immortal featuring a narrative that many have been asking for, with it set to bridge the large gap between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, long-time fans of the franchise weren't pleased with the mobile-exclusivity.

A record number of candidates identifying as "LGBT" ran for office this election cycle, and several of them will soon take office. As more and more GOP seats look vulnerable, Republicans fear that their House majority might be eliminated on Election Day .

No matter how powerful the mobile platform can be, I, for one do not want to tap on glass to control a video game.

"For our diehard PC fans, we will say though, we still have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects".

The safe bet says that Diablo 4 is being made, though I wouldn't be surprised if it's still many years away. Not only that, but Brack said Blizzard has plans to support the game for a while after launch. "In the end, Diablo Immortal is going to fulfil that, and we think that people are going to experience it, and we think they're going to love it". He also teased that Diablo for mobile could be just the first of Blizzard's franchise to get mobile releases, as another Blizzard executive already said.

GameSpot went hands-on with Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon, and editor Alessandro Fillari was surprisingly impressed by the game in this early stage.
