During BlizzCon, Wyatt Cheng (Blizzard's Lead Game Designer) has confirmed that Diablo Immortal will be an Always-Online game and therefore the title will require an internet connection always active in order to work. "And I think when we look at an opportunity to make an awesome mobile game, we want to take it".
"We feel like Diablo Immortal can bring a lot of what they were hoping for".
Six iconic and highly customisable Diablo character classes will be available in Diablo Immortal-Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard-each with new powers and abilities, with more playable classes planned for future updates. We generally don't comment on rumors or speculation, but we can say that we didn't pull any announcements from BlizzCon this year or have plans for other announcements. And many have suggested the outcry could have been avoided if Blizzard had accompanied Immortal's unveiling with news of the next mainline Diablo game. It is Blizzard's plan to weave the mobile gaming into their audience, that now is mostly centered around PCs and consoles. "I understand their feeling and wish we could share more about all the wonderful things we're doing, not just with the Diablo franchise but across the company as a whole".
Disappointment might be a small word to describe fans' feeling after Diablo Immortal announcement. We definitely have a team which is very much co-developing the content of the game together with NetEase. But then fans quickly proved themselves to be that messy bitch who hurls things at their significant other because how dare Blizzard show up with a pearl necklace when it knew they were waiting for a diamond ring. What we said was we have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple projects. "One, we're all gamers at heart, but we're also mobile gamers".
Manchester City rocked by latest allegations of financial doping
City representatives have said the Abu Dhabi-based companies are independent sponsors. Spend why? Because they need good players.
So when can we expect to hear more about the game?
"The way I've been kind of looking at the mixed comments is what those folks are really saying is they desperately, passionately want the next big thing".
What all of this means is that, considering Kotaku's report, a video was created to announce another Diablo project but it is unknown when that announcement will take place.
