Blizzard Says It 'Didn't Pull Any Announcements From BlizzCon'

  • That's a lot of dislikes

At the time, fans of Diablo have been left scratching their heads wondering why they didn't at least acknowledge Diablo 4.

After a disastrous reveal of a new mobile game - Diablo Immortal - at Blizzcon 2018, Blizzard has reiterated that there are more Diablo titles in development. 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.

The announcement of mobile Diablo Immortal during BlizzCon 2018 did not go smoothly. Diablo is a tentpole franchise for us.

You see, Diablo Immortal is a mobile RPG - a stripped-back version of Diablo 3 (though with an all-new story) created to run on a smartphone.

Diablo Immortal is a collaboration between Blizzard Entertainment and NetEase Games, who in addition to having developed some of the most successful mobile games in history, have been a longtime partner of Blizzard in China.

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.

How to watch Red Star Belgrade vs
Mane thought he'd scored early in the second half, before Robertson hit the crossbar and Mo Salah crashed a shot against the post. Red Star are expected to be without Vujadin Savic due to injury but Marko Marin is set to return to the squad.

However, when it announced that the latest installment of the "Diablo" franchise was simply a mobile version, it got a frosty reception. Blizzard maintains that it had never meant to talk about Diablo 4 at BlizzCon and that no announcements were pulled from the show. Warcraft III: Reforged does not have a conclusive release date yet but Blizzard said it might come out sometime next year.

The pricing structure, which hasn't been revealed, will tell us a lot about Blizzard's intentions here. We hoped that would allay concerns, but we knew despite that our most engaged, most passionate fans and players here at this show would only be satisfied with one thing.

Despite that, sources said, Blizzard was still looking to assure fans that Diablo 4 was in development, until those plans changed. The company's online gaming service, Blizzard Battle.net®, is one of the largest online-gaming services in the world, with millions of active players.

If you're one of those upset by the announcement of Diablo Immortal, you haven't been left behind.

Oh and Lucio is the face of a new cereal that Blizzard and Kellogg's will release.
