Blizzard is working on multiple mobile games 'across all our IPs'

Diablo 4 has been in the works for four years now but developers still feel that the current state is not something they would reveal

In brief: Blizzard incurred the combined wrath of (most) gamers when the only Diablo title it revealed at BlizzCon was a mobile game called Diablo Immortal.

The four main franchises of Blizzard are Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch. First gamers cried foul, claiming the game would be terrible, and then ex-Blizzard devs chimed in, criticizing the company.

At a press conference for Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon 2018, executive producer Allen Adham released the news. But they did so while acknowledging that their fan base has expectations for a game more in line with the core series they're familiar with. "We have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles across all of our IPs".

Everyone is disappointed and it's expected that this mobile game will not turn out to be a success so we will have to wait to see how Activation tackles this all.

Gen Porsche 911 teased while testing ahead of official debut
After it goes on sale in the worldwide markets, Porsche will surely bring the new-gen 911 to India sometime later next year. By the time, testing is complete, the cars have been driven around three million kilometres in total.

Diablo Immortal is a sequel to Diablo II, and the prequel to Diablo III and the game has the main focus on the adventures of particular characters from the series between the two games.

Given Adham's comment about the quantity of projects the team is now working on, it's fair to assume that at least some of them will be major PC releases and that, as the company has assured its fans, Diablo 4 will be among them. After all, you can't exactly make a financially successful game if nobody wants to play it. Not only that, but Brack said Blizzard has plans to support the game for a while after launch. "One of the things that we've said is we have multiple teams working on multiple different projects for the Diablo community", he added. I also think Diablo: Immortal has the potential to actually be a pretty neat mobile game, if undoubtedly not a replacement for a proper sequel.

The news broke at Blizz-con this weekend, fans were teased with the possibility of a Diablo announcement prior to the event and of course the dedicated fandom salivated at the thought of Diablo 4 being officially announced.
