The game webpage describes the project as a fully realized massively multiplayer online action role-playing game (MMOARPG) for mobile devices.
If you are a fan of the Diablo series from Blizzard (now Blizzard/Activision) and have been hoping that maybe, some day, a full-featured game would land on iOS devices in the future, that wait is nearly over. Blizzard hasn't abandoned the core Diablo franchise just because it created a mobile game. Players will be able to choose a character from one of six classes: Barbarian, Wizard, Demon Hunter, Monk, Crusader and Necromancer. Diablo fans - at least the ones on forums, social media, and YouTube - aren't very happy with Diablo Immortal, and it appears the mobile title is doomed from the jump.
This new chapter of the blockbuster Diablo saga takes place between the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction® and the beginning of Diablo IIILeading the invasion of Sanctuary is the demon known as Skarn, Herald of Terror-Diablo's most powerful lieutenant-who now rallies a new demonic army. If you want to throw your money at the developer in the meantime, you can pre-order the game's $29.99 Standard Edition, or shell out some extra cash for the "Spoils of War Edition" which comes in at $39.99. Fans expected a host of Diablo announcements and instead were met with the reveal of a mobile game.
When rumors started surfacing that Blizzard had a big Diablo announcement prepped for its annual convention, fans naturally prepared themselves for the next game in the franchise: Diablo 4. Blizzard has said many Diablo games were in the works but they would not be ready to announce all of them for BlizzCon.
In one of the major highlights from today Blizzcon livestream, it was revealed that WoW Classic would have a release date in 2019.
Everything Blizzard: All the news about the video game company and their franchises.
And Blizzard stresses that this is a traditional "fully-fledged" Diablo experience, complete with six traditional classes, challenging boss fights and deep gameplay.
