NetEase and Blizzard Entertainment Co-developing Diablo Immortal(TM)

Blizzard president on Diablo Immortal:

Following Diablo Immortal's reveal at Blizzcon this weekend, many fans have reacted to the announcement negatively as most hoped for a next major installment to the franchise. We made a mobile game of Hearthstone, taking it from PC and it was our first step into mobile. While the likes remain consistent, comments and dislikes appear to fluctuate.

The Diablo franchise can't seem to catch a true break. But fans have been asking for a new entry for years now, and Blizzard said they had multiple projects in the works many times before.

BlizzCon 2018 is nearly here and we've seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show.

Kotaku has updated its story, claiming that the video does exist, but the timeline of Blizzard's announcement isn't clear. Blizzard said that this new MMORPG will allow you to be in one of the very iconic six classes. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, the improper delivery resulted in Diablo Immortals feeling like a "huge bait-n-switch feeling moment". In the face of this controversy, as Blizzard faces a marketing crisis, one upcoming game has already attempted to appeal to frustrated Diablo fans.

He told the BBC: "I can't see it because I think it would be the worst of all worlds". And a backstop can not have a time-limit".

He followed up that information with: "We still have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects". Others have called Immortal a rehashed version of Crusaders of Light, another mobile action-RPG by developer NetEase, Blizzard's partner on Immortal. "It's a big initiative for us across Blizzard, and you can expect to see more mobile titles from us spanning all of our IPs at some point in the future". Younger folks now, many of them, mobile is their primary gaming device. If this report is true, this year we would have got one.

In a very level-headed, not at all out of proportion move, some have even started a petition to have Diablo Immortal cancelled, because if they aren't getting the game they want, no other new game in the series should exist.

"I think it's totally understandable" Cheng said, according to VG247.

As unveiled November 2 at BlizzCon 2018, this new chapter of the blockbuster Diablo saga takes place between the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and the beginning of Diablo III.
