At BlizzCon today, Blizzard announced the next chapter in the highly successful, and highly addictive action-RPG franchise Diablo. Now, if you were expecting Diablo 3, then you’re sadly going to be a bit disappointed as the company instead announced a Diablo mobile game titled “Diablo Immortals.”
Note that this announcement was the capper of the press conference, which meant Blizzard saved this for last as the “big reveal.” So what’s Diablo Immortal? It’s a new MMOARPG (massively multiplayer online action RPG) that’s exclusively for iOS and Android devices. It’s said to be the “first” mobile MMOARPG, and should continue where Diablo II: Lord of Destruction left off!. Check out the announcement trailer now.
Enter the world of Diablo Immortal, a new entry in the Diablo universe. Taking place between the events of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III, this mobile massively multiplayer online ARPG is a true Diablo hack-and-slash adventure, all in the palm of your hand.
There’s no release date yet for Diablo Immortal, but if the recent trend in gaming is any indication, expect a beta soon.
Are you OK with this announcement? Would it have made a difference if Blizzard didn’t close off the show with this?
