Well it seems the rumor about Blizzard working on multiple Diablo projects was indeed true. While we didn’t get the Diablo 4 news we were all anticipating at Blizzcon (at least not yet), Blizzard has announced Diablo Immortal; a mobile version of the iconic franchise.
Diablo Immortal takes place after Diablo 2 and is described as follows by Blizzard:
The Worldstone lies shattered, yet great power remains within its corrupted fragments. Power that Diablo’s minions hope to harness to bring about the return of the Lord of Terror. The Archangel Tyrael is presumed dead, and mankind is left to deal with the aftermath of his actions. Fragments of the corrupted Worldstone taint the land, bringing forth ancient evils who are looking to harvest the stone’s power and use it to control humanity.

Color us intrigued. We don’t cover mobile games typically here at SG as we simply don’t feel they offer the experience that we’ve known and loved for decades. Will Blizzard be able to change that with Diablo Immortal? We’re unsure but it looks great and seems like it could be a good fit given the gameplay model. We’re excited to get our hands on it.
