And Blizzard intends to update the game in other ways: "Diablo Immortal will regularly introduce new storylines, new playable character classes, new loot, and all-new challenges". I don't care. With more incredible games in the world than I will ever have time to play, the existence of a game I simply don't want to play means little to me.

Warcraft 3, one of the series' most beloved RTS titles, is being remastered for PC- and it is coming next year, Blizzard announced at Blizzcon today. In time-old internet fashion, they've resorted to a flurry of mocking and angry threads across Twitter and Reddit, as well as smashing that dislike button on YouTube. It's easy to see why a mobile Diablo game developed by third-party studio NetEase isn't quite what fans of the series were hoping for - though asking rude questions during a live panel is nearly certainly a less constructive way to express that disappointment than disliking a video or leaving negative feedback online. Diablo Immortal will pit players against Diablo's older brother Bael as they journey across various locales, including the classic Frozen Tundra and the new jungle island Bilefen.

"Diablo" is coming to mobile, Wyatt Cheng, principle designer announced at BlizzCon 2018 on Friday. Six classes have been confirmed so far - Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard.

We don't know precisely when the remaster will be available, but Blizzard says it'll come out sometime in 2019.

Diablo Immortal does not have a release date. We'll have to wait and see.

Are you excited to take the third entry into the Diablo franchise with you on the go with your Nintendo Switch?

"There are actually two distinct teams", Adham said. He ended the conversation by saying he hopes the community learns to love the game and learns more about the lore with the ability to "walk around with this in their pocket" and with having "the ability to play it anytime, anywhere".

This isn't a port of an existing game to mobile.

Diablo Immortal arrives as more and more smartphone makers are releasing gaming phones.
