Diablo: Immortal Faces Massive Backlash From Fans; Blizzard Responds By Deleting Comments

Diablo fans are not happy. Those sources also said that Diablo 4 is now in development, although the team isn't "ready to commit to an announcement" as the game has gone through many big changes over the last four years. Blizzard had a stellar lineup at the event, the opening preview event even featured an announcement from Bungie as they announced that Destiny 2 will be available for free on PC till 18 November. It's been another big year of reveals, panels, and competitions, and while some announcements were met with more enthusiasm than others [more on that later] all-in-all the convention was another epic celebration of everything Blizzard has on offer. Fans are angry due to their love for the game, he said, but he added that the Diablo franchise is a very big focus for the company, although fans are finding it hard to understand that. And Blizzard's response has been to reassure fans that it is now working on multiple projects.

Diablo Immortal is releasing in 2019 and there's no plan to bring it on PC as we eagerly wait for more news about Diablo 4 to drop at some point next year.

The Cowen & Company note mentioned that Blizzard might have avoided giving gamers the perception that it was changing direction to focus on mobile games by offering core fans a tease or a glimpse of the next core Diablo title.

In a very level-headed, not at all out of proportion move, some have even started a petition to have Diablo Immortal cancelled, because if they aren't getting the game they want, no other new game in the series should exist. At time of righting the video has 14 000 likes versus 382 000 dislikes.

These attempts to achieve better optics did not go unnoticed, as some fans began to spam the trailer with variants of a singular comment, "Hey, Blizzard". And perhaps the whole Diablo Immortal backlash would have been a small blip and not the major distraction it has become.

On 17 October, two weeks before BlizzCon, Blizzard put out a blog post that essentially told fans Diablo 4 was in the works but would not be at the show. Why they didn't show it off at Blizzcon, however, is beyond me.

So this past weekend wasn't the greatest one for Blizzard Entertainment.

While Kotaku usually gets solid information from its sources, Blizzard has come out to deny claims that Diablo 4 was initially set to be announced at Blizzcon.
