Even with the controversial news of Diablo: ImmortalBlizzard still confirmed Diablo 4 was in production but simply not ready to show at this year's Blizzcon.
Executive producer Allen Adham revealed that Blizzard is now working on more mobile titles for all of its IPs. While another called it an "absolute slap in the face of all the fans who stuck with blizzard through the mess that was diablo 3, hoping that we'd finally get a good diablo game". Phones enable a degree of fidelity that is comparable to PC and console gaming.
Fans of yet another popular game franchise from Blizzard Entertainment will have to keep waiting for the fourth installment, at least for now.
ACTIVISIONBLIZZARD Inc. shares were hammered as video gamers took to social media to criticize a new mobile game that they say failed to live up to the storied franchise.
No matter how powerful the mobile platform can be, I, for one do not want to tap on glass to control a video game. "So we haven't forgotten about them", Adham said.
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. It certainly felt like the main course was missing from dinner after Diablo: Immortal was given top billing at BlizzCon, but it's a claim Blizzard denies - which is the equivalent of being thrown a rope to pull yourself out of quicksand, but instead choosing to light the rope on fire. "One of the things that we've said is we have multiple teams working on multiple different projects for the Diablo community", he added.
