Diablo Immortal was first introduced at BlizzCon 2018, the writer’s annual gaming conference, and was met with each instant and sustained resistance from followers of the collection.
Regardless of Blizzard having already hinted fairly closely that Diablo four wouldn’t be proven at this yr’s convention, followers nonetheless felt robbed that the announcement wasn’t pertaining to a different main PC installment of the franchise and have been skeptical of the possibly money-driven motives of creating a cell recreation.
In a video Q&A posted to YouTube, Adham said that Blizzard has “a lot of its greatest builders now engaged on new cell titles throughout all its IPs” and that it has “extra new merchandise in improvement right now […] than it’s ever had in its historical past”.
Whereas specifics weren’t shared within the video, it feels like we are able to count on some extra cell video games within the coming years based mostly on the worlds and lore of different Blizzard titles akin to Warcraft, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm.
