Blizzard has mobile titles in the works for multiple IPs

Blizzard has mobile titles in the works for multiple IPs”

The User Interface that will be in Diablo Immortal looks similar to previous titles but simplified for a touch-screen.

Yes, we got the cool announcement of Warcraft 3: Reforged but the fire that rages, its in the eyes of furious Blizzard fans after discovering that the long awaited next game in the Diablo franchise called Diablo Immortal will be on mobile with no immediate plans to come to PC. They didn't go into any detail about what characters might be getting more attention this time around though though if they are taking a cue from WoW it would make sense if both Sylvanas and Jaina had a bit more attention.

Adham continued by stating that "some of them are with external partners like with Diablo: Immortal".

The most discouraging part of the statement for fans who won't be playing the mobile games is where Adham says that "we have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles".

Adham said Blizzard made a decision to create a mobile version of Diablo (and, I would assume, other games that have yet to be announced) because mobile technology now enables a degree of fidelity that's comparable to PC and console gaming.

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.

So, while confirming that the game's in the making, Blizzard isn't ready to reveal it and wasn't at BlizzCon 2018 neither.

Microsoft had a similar moment at E3, announcing the Gears POP! mobile game right before Gears 5.

Diablo coming with a new game is a good news for fans but being a mobile title is a turn down for a huge player base as they expected it to be another PC masterpiece.

Pete Stiwel, in charge of the division Blizzard's Classic Cams has announced that the game will be available at the end of the next year, i.e. 31 December 2019. 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. It's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model.
