Blizzard to release more mobile games in the future

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 Blizzard denies pulling Diablo 4 announcement from BlizzCon 2018

According to Bloomberg, Activision Blizzard's shares dropped 7.2 percent yesterday as a result of the Diablo Immortal backlash. After the Warcraft 3: Reforged, Blizzard has started working on a new Diablo game which is going to be in the mobile gaming category. Given that fact, this was probably the best PR choice for them.

"Some of them are with external partners like with Diablo: Immortal". It seems simple, but Blizzard likely could have diminished a lot of that anger by padding Immortal's announcement out with the confirmation that a more traditional Diablo game was on the way, similar to how Bethesda, Microsoft, and Nintendo introduced their mobile titles.

However, as a source cited by the media outlet claimed, "They're still working together towards an out of court settlement". The trial could take up to 3 weeks and the judge will have the duty of going thru all the info and making a decision.

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. Diablo: Immortal was a massively disappointing reveal for me too, and it's one that felt borderline tone deaf to a primarily PC community when given the spotlight at BlizzCon - an event that historically caters to Blizzard's most dedicated fans - without even a casual mention of what else might be coming. "So we haven't forgotten about them", Adham said.

The four main franchises of Blizzard are Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch. Mobile can compete for a hardcore gamer's attention.

The decision comes after a tense standoff between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a press conference on Wednesday. Fox News has not yet confirmed whether or not the video is actually doctored, or simply zooms in on the incident.

Fans of yet another popular game franchise from Blizzard Entertainment will have to keep waiting for the fourth installment, at least for now. "We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right". The days of archaic arcade phone games are gone.

Despite Blizzard having already hinted quite heavily that Diablo 4 wouldn't be shown at this year's conference, fans still felt robbed that the announcement wasn't pertaining to another major PC installment of the franchise and were skeptical of the potentially money-driven motives of making a mobile game. It's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model.
