Diablo 4 Announcement Was Never Planned For BlizzCon, Blizzard Confirms

The knowledge that a full-fat Diablo game is on the way may have positioned Immortal as a snack to be enjoyed in the meantime, not unlike the relationship between Fallout Shelter and Fallout 4.

While we won't be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.

During Blizzcon 2018, we have been crowned with the announcement of Diablo Immortal, a game that most of the players know as a core, authentic, and attractive when it comes to hack "n" slash title by Blizzard. The company was expecting fans to react passionately, one of its co-founders told Kotaku in an interview today, but it wasn't prepared for the level of vitriol that ensued.

However, while Kotaku was right in saying that the developer had indeed created a video (presented by studio co-founder Allen Adham), it was never meant to be shown at Blizzcon.

It was with this subtle distinction that Cheng announced "Diablo Immortal", a smartphone-only entry in the "Diablo" franchise.

A release date for the iOS and Android game is yet to be announced.

"And the unique things we can do on a mobile device is different than we can do on any other platform, so it's just a great time to be able to be able to bring a Diablo game to the mobile platform". "What we see is anybody who actually holds it and plays it feels great about it". We just play games, and a lot of us play mobile games.

Lastly, the new weapon addition is a Candy Corn LMG, a mid range scoped weapon which fires out candy corn shaped bullets. The most prominent of them being the major world-changing one-time event that took place in Fortnite on November 4.

Are You Excited for Diablo Immortal?

The conclusion that we can draw from this is that Blizzard messed up in their presentation. And we hope that as they get opportunities to see people play, see more of the gameplay, they'll see that passion that's in this game...

Kotaku could confirm the video was recorded and Diablo 4 is in active development.

So this past weekend wasn't the greatest one for Blizzard Entertainment.

"The way I've been kind of looking at the mixed comments is what those folks are really saying is they desperately, passionately want the next big thing".

Diablo fans could've had a completely different reaction had the original plan gone through at BlizzCon. Despite the publisher's warning to keep expectations in check, fans of the series were outraged when Diablo 4 failed to appear, and in its place came Diablo Immortal.
