The Diablo franchise is now more than two decades old and enjoys a huge fan base, which is always out to announce the next game. Unless, of course, this game is for mobile devices, and that's what Blizzard announced during BlizzCon 2018.
The game is called Diablo Immortal, it is referred to as MMO and appears on iOS and Android. If you want to know how badly it was received, look no further for the similar and unpredictable totals of the following gameplay video. At the time of writing, the video had more than 10,000 likes. However, the total dislike has risen above 155,000.
According to the comments on the trailer, the aversion count exceeded 500,000, but the video was re-uploaded, which reset the count. The fact that it has become so big shows once again how unpopular this decision by Blizzard is to target exclusively mobile.
For those interested in Diablo Immortal, six character classes await, including Barbarians, Crusaders, Demon Hunters, Monks, Necromancers, and Sorcerers. The focus is on a "constantly evolving world" and the ability to socialize with other players, socialize, attend public events and enjoy classic Diablo gameplay. And because it's a mobile game, Blizzard decided to go with NetEase, a long-time partner of Blizzard in China.
As VG247 reports, Blizzard regards the online response as "completely understandable". Wyatt Cheng, the lead game designer for Diablo Immortal, explained this, "I think if you came to BlizzCon and hope for a PC announcement and hope and you do not play mobile games at all, you'd be, oh, have that I did not ask, and I do not care, & # 39; I think it's okay if people are skeptical. "
It does not matter how many Diablo fans complain, Diablo Immortal is happening right now. The best way to show their dislike is to choose not to play it. Millions of others are likely to do so, and it should open Diablo to a whole new class of players who are younger and play games exclusively on mobile devices.
