Blizzard’s unveiling of Diablo Immortal being a mobile game last month at BlizzCon 2018 displeased a lot of fans. The team at Blizzard has tried to reassure fans that the mobile-only game isn’t the only Diablo project that they’re developing.
A recent thread on the Blizzard forums has the Diablo developers posting a new statement that hints a little more at what exactly the “multiple Diablo projects” they keep spewing out. According to the post, there are indeed more than one Diablo projects that are being developed at Blizzard and they plan to reveal them over the course of 2019:
“We continue to read feedback and our internal discussions are ongoing. We have many plans for Diablo across multiple projects which we’ll be revealing over the course of the coming year. We are eager to share more about all of our projects, but some will have to wait as we prefer to show you, rather than tell you, about them. It’s going to take some time as we strive to meet your expectations, but now, more than ever, we are committed to delivering Diablo experiences the community can be proud of.”
The team has been saying the thing over and over many times now, yet fans are still concerned over what exactly these projects are. With this post directly from the horse’s mouth, fans can now be assured that there will be some “Diablo experiences the community can be proud of,” which means no more phone games (because that’s obviously not what the community wants.” 2019 will be the year of Diablo.
Diablo Immortal is coming soon for mobile devices, and Diablo Eternal is available already for consoles. Diablo 4 should be next- or at least we can speculate that it’ll be revealed in 2019.
