"In terms of Blizzard's approach to mobile gaming, many of us over the last few years have shifted from playing primarily desktop to playing many hours on mobile", Adham said.
"I will say also that we have more new products in development today at Blizzard than we've ever had in our history, and our future is very bright". Blizzard has received a ton of push back from fans over the idea of a Diablo mobile game, but if you count yourself among the people who are disappointed, you might want to buckle in. "Some of them are with external partners like Diablo Immortal; many of them are being developed internally-only, and we'll have information to share on those in the future".
After the overwhelmingly negative response from Blizzard's fan base about the announcement of the company's Diablo Immortal mobile game, CEO Allen Adham has confirmed that there are more mobile titles in the works.
So, while confirming that the game's in the making, Blizzard isn't ready to reveal it and wasn't at BlizzCon 2018 neither.
Fans of yet another popular game franchise from Blizzard Entertainment will have to keep waiting for the fourth installment, at least for now.
Given the "Cancel Diablo Immortal" petition on Change.org has nearly reached 35,000 signatures, we can not say for certain if these analysts' predictions are accurate or pipe dreams. 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. He also teased that Diablo for mobile could be just the first of Blizzard's franchise to get mobile releases, as another Blizzard executive already said. The days of archaic arcade phone games are gone. It's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model. Even Nintendo used this tactic past year, showing nothing more than a logo for Metroid Prime 4 after announcing the 3DS remake Metroid: Samus Returns - and we haven't heard anything about Metroid Prime 4 since then, but fans at least know it's coming.
