Diablo Immortal is surprisingly good, what little consolation that may be

  • Blizzard president on Diablo Immortal:

In a statement sent to Kotaku, Blizzard confirmed that no announcement has been pulled from this year's BlizzCon. Scrolling through the 274 (and counting) replies to Warhammer: Chaosbane's tweet you'll mostly find reaction images, memes, and one Twitter user evoking Warhammer to state that "mobile games are for chaos heretics".

According to the comments on the trailer, the dislike count had gone past 500,000, but the video was re-uploaded which reset the count. "We saw a similar response when we announced that we were bringing Diablo to console, and we saw a similar response to the announcement of Hearthstone".

Speaking with VG247, lead designer Wyatt Cheng talked about Diablo Immortal and the backlash the studio faced. That would make sense if the higher-ups at Blizzard were still uncertain if the final game would ever see the light of day, or if the form it took at release would be wildly different than anything they might tease in these stages. And reinforcements are always only a tap away thanks to the native Blizzard Battle.net UI designed specifically for Diablo Immortal, which allows you to chat and form groups easily in the middle of the most frantic battle.

Blizzard now has a PR battle going on now to get people to give Diablo: Immortal a chance.

At the company's annual BlizzCon show in Anaheim, California, Blizzard told the shocked crowd the new game in the popular series would be available for just iOS and Android. We definitely have a team which is very much co-developing the content of the game together with NetEase.

Races to watch in USA midterm elections 2018
Democrats won half of the seats they needed to claim House control with dozens additional competitive contests remaining. All 435 seats in the House , 35 seats in the 100-member Senate and 36 of the 50 state governorships were up for grabs.

And now there's Diablo Immortal, which is still in development for smartphones.

Blizzard has responded to the backlash. If this report is true, this year we would have got one. We've also said multiple teams are working on multiple projects. We play board games. So I actually think that those two items are being conflated.

We'll certainly be seeing more from the upcoming mobile exclusive in the coming months and I for one am looking forward to punishing evil on the toilet. It's pretty clear to us that there is a huge audience around the world that is gonna love this title.

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.
