  • Activision Earnings & The Fallout from Its Diablo Mobile Fiasco

Diablo Immortal is now in development for mobile platforms. After the Warcraft 3: Reforged, Blizzard has started working on a new Diablo game which is going to be in the mobile gaming category.

Warcraft fans weren't the only ones jumping with excitement at Blizzcon with their other classic franchise, Diablo also serving up some interesting announcements.

Diablo Immortal was first announced at BlizzCon 2018, the publisher's annual gaming convention, and was met with both immediate and sustained resistance from fans of the series. The magnitude of the Diablo Immortal reveal's negativity has escalated much bigger than necessary, but even though that's the case, the response from Blizzard needs to be elevated, too.

Executive producer Allen Adham revealed that Blizzard is now working on more mobile titles for all of its IPs. "Adham goes on to say, "... we'll have information to share on those in the future".

Some Android apps will soon update even while still in use
Google hasn't announced an official date that it will get wide release but said the API will be available to all developers soon. Well, despite the announcement , there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices.

Quintal worked for the Guardian as an editor while Ms Mumo worked for the Nation group before shifting to CPJ. Mabaya said she was unable to locate it and her Twitter and Facebook profiles remain deactivated.


Adham said Blizzard made a decision to create a mobile version of Diablo (and, I would assume, other games that have yet to be announced) because mobile technology now enables a degree of fidelity that's comparable to PC and console gaming. "The future is bright".

Microsoft had a similar moment at E3, announcing the Gears POP! mobile game right before Gears 5. Fans are expressing their dissatisfaction the best way they can. It's also an opportunity to introduce Diablo to "a much broader audience around the world", and to younger gamers in North America, many of whom play primarily on their phones.

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's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model. Back in August Blizzard put out a video called The Future of Diablo, but even that just said the same thing we've heard elsewhere about there being "multiple Diablo projects" in the works - which, to its credit, Blizzard has been very vocal about.
