Diablo 4 Was Allegedly Going To Be Confirmed At BlizzCon

Reports have claimed that Diablo 4 was removed from the Blizzcon schedule at the last minute, as fan anger continues.

If you've been following the events and goings on at BlizzCon this past weekend then you'd be aware of the whole controversy surrounding the reveal of the mobile-only Diablo Immortal - one of "multiple Diablo project now in the works" but the only new Diablo thing at the show.

Blizzard has responded to the backlash.

But he refuted the claims by fans that Diablo Immortal is just a re-skin of another existing game.

After the initial announcement of Diablo Immortal, another panel at BlizzCon confirmed there are more games in the series in development. The game looks and plays similarly to traditional "Diablo" games, except it's tailored for smartphones' touch controls and smaller screen. We just play games, and a lot of us play mobile games.

Sessions resigns as attorney general
Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, had served as Sessions's chief-of-staff since September 2017. Sessions' recusal prevented him from stopping the probe, which Trump has attacked as an unfair "witch hunt".

In the months leading up to Blizzcon, rumors circulated that Blizzcon would hold a major announcement regarding the Diablo franchise. "You need to make an effort to connect and tear down the corporate wall and get to know your audience".

Now all you have to do is wait for the final Diablo Immortal version to come out on Google Play Store, especially if you're a fan of the Diablo saga. So I actually think that those two items are being conflated. That's how Bethesda was able to draw roaring applause by simply splashing four words onto a big screen at E3, and Blizzard could easily have done the same thing: Tell the audience, "One more thing", smash a Diablo 4 logo on the screen, "Thank you!" The company's online gaming service, Blizzard Battle.net®, is one of the largest online-gaming services in the world, with millions of active players.

Seeing as Diablo Immortal is releasing for mobile - and mobile only, PC plans were dismissed at Blizzcon - the angry fan is obviously trying to show Blizzard what Diablo players wanted, whilst attempting to give Diablo fans an alternative until IV releases.

"We expect Activision Blizzard to outpace its peers with its in-game monetization, and expect dramatic growth in its mobile business as it launches new titles based upon its successful PC and console games", Wedbush wrote.

At this point in time, glancing over threads and videos regarding this topic, the vocal majority of the Diablo community seems not too happy about the Diablo Immortal announcement, with many concerns regarding monetization mechanisms and the way the unveiling of the new title was handled in itself.
