Blizzard has more mobile games in the works beyond Diablo Immortal

It's safe to say the Diablo Immortal reveal at BlizzCon over the weekend was a bit of a disaster.

One source has since suggested to Schreier that Blizzard was not yet ready to reveal the game, as the game has undergone massive changes during four years of development. People were really angry about Diablo Immortal's announcement as a mobile game, despite the fact that Blizzard had warned everyone weeks in advance that Diablo 4 probably wasn't going to be there. In fact, Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham said during a post announcement press conference (via Korean YouTube channel 리뷰빌런 하텍) that Diablo Immortal is just the beginning. They also took some time to talk about an upcoming game in the Diablo franchise, but it wasn't quite what most fans were expecting. Many of them are being developed internally only, and we'll have information to share on those in the future.

In brief: Blizzard incurred the combined wrath of (most) gamers when the only Diablo title it revealed at BlizzCon was a mobile game called Diablo Immortal.

Given Adham's comment about the quantity of projects the team is now working on, it's fair to assume that at least some of them will be major PC releases and that, as the company has assured its fans, Diablo 4 will be among them. "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. We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right", said the company, in a statement. "The future is bright".
