A new Diablo game has been announced, developed by NetEase in partnership with Blizzard and it's exclusive to mobile devices.
If you think I'm being a bit bombastic with my initial rhetoric over Diablo Immortal, the cinematic trailer above is now sitting at less than 5% likes at the time of this post going live. Fragments of the corrupted Worldstone taint the land, bringing forth ancient evils who are looking to harvest the stone's power and use it to control humanity. On its site, Blizzard says Diablo Immortal will let players explore Sanctuary "in a persistent, always-online adventure anywhere, anytime". Diablo Immortal is an MMO ARPG described as a game that can be played by anyone, anywhere they please.
The transition from mouse-and-keyboard or controller to mobile touchscreen device was created to feel completely natural, intuitive, and fun in Diablo Immortal. An attendee at the "Diablo: What's Next" panel at BlizzCon 2018 asked about the game's intended audience, with the developers seeming to "want to reach a new audience by going mobile".
Now sure, people are entitled to take interest on what they please, but this seems like a full Diablo experience, albeit on a mobile platform.
