Diablo Mobile Game Announced, Main Series Sequel Reportedly in Development

Diablo Mobile Game Announced, Main Series Sequel Reportedly in Development

Blizzard closed its BlizzCon 2018 opening ceremony with a mobile game announcement that left everyone feeling a little put out.

Activision Blizzard Inc. shares were hammered as video gamers took to social media to criticize a new mobile game that they say failed to live up to the storied franchise. Are you a huge fan of the Diablo franchise, and if so, which was your favorite game to play? "We still have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects".

Diablo fans could've had a completely different reaction had the original plan gone through at BlizzCon.

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

The upcoming Diablo Immortal for Android will make some references to the storylines of the first two Diablo titles, although the gameplay will be different and adapted to smartphones.

Names released in fatal hit-and-run; police release crash cause
Another girl who was not immediately identified remained hospitalized Monday in stable condition, according to the newspaper. Police say a 21-year-old driver of a pick-up truck veered off the road and hit the troop.

With that, Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham recently spoke to Kotaku about the response to the trailer. Speaking to Digital Trends Blizzard is planning to bring more IPs to mobile devices. "I understand their feeling and wish we could share more about all the incredible things we're doing, not just with the Diablo franchise but across the company as a whole". This has led to fans noticing that Diablo: Immortal may simply be a reskin of a previous NetEase mobile game, Crusader of Light. He said that all assets and the works of art are unique to Diablo Immortal.

So when can we expect to hear more about the game? Many devs stop playing games as they start making them professionally. He also said that it was Hearthstone and its mobile port that opened Blizzard's eyes to broader opportunity.

Blizzard has responded to the backlash. Diablo is a well-loved hack and slash game series in which players fight through demons to defeat Diablo, the Lord of Terror. So I don't think that the mixed comments are necessarily anything other than when a really passionate audience that desperately wants to see what they hope to see one day ...

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.
