A new official note on Blizzard's forum suggests that the much-awaited Diablo 4 reveal may take place next year.
is blizzard going the way of bethesda, ea and so on? it pretty much looks that way.
Haha, and gamers everywhere collectively rolled their eyes at Blizzard...
More like going the way of Westwood and Bullfrog, if Activision has their say
You know, maybe that would have been a good idea BEFORE/AFTER you announced Immortal. "May take place next year" is not good enough for the fanbase you just disrespected.
That would of been awesome, announce the mobile version, get everyone scratching their heads break a few hearts and then right after that announce diablo 4 with crowds cheering and crying in excitement.
Tbh I think everyone over reacted and blew it way out of proportion. People were acting like Diablo 4 had been replaced by Immortal and that's clearly not the case. It's in Blizzards interest to release Immortal as well as Diablo 4.
Exactly. But to be fair, they did over hype the announcement before hand. It's everyone's fault. Fans over reacted and Blizzard dropped the ball.
no they gave a good reaction to that fucking shitty announcement. In case you didn't know. It was hyped on the launch page, it was hyped about in their store with new diablo merchandise... so yeah. we were expecting a big announcement. People paid to be there for it.... mobile game and no mention of D4. So yeah. yeah we reacted.
Yeah, I don't see why they couldn't have done a Bayonetta 3/Metroid Prime 4/Elder Scrolls VI style announcement. Literally all they needed was some music, a short vague animation, and a logo and people would have been happy. Announcing Diablo Immortal at Blizzcon was one of the most tone deaf announcements that I have ever seen.
Too late. I've been playing Blizzard games for over 15 years. I uninstalled everything (Wow, Diablo, Hearthstone, HotS, Destiny etc.) including Battle.net. I'm gone and I'm not coming back. Yes, I have a phu*king phone Blizz. Jesus.
I still don’t understand the big deal. So they decided to release a Mobile phone game before bringing out Diablo 4. Square Enix have done quite a few Mobile games before releasing a new FF main series game and you don’t see people crying about it.
pretty sure its diablo fans f spent hundreds / thousands of their hard earned money on blizzcon only to get acrappy announcement for them.
If you don't understand the problem, that's on you. It's been 6+ years since Diablo III, that launched poorly and many still prefer Diablo II (which was in 2000. See how long of a wait this fanbase keeps having to do?), and the rumors/hype was that Diablo IV was going to be the sendoff announcement for the biggest part of Blizzcon. Instead, they announce a third-party developed, copycat Diablo mobile title that you can't play on PC or without an internet connect. When asked about releasing on PC, they said no plans for that, then took a shot at everyone booing saying "Don't you guys have phones?!" like it was a funny comeback. Blizzard messed up 100%, and they deserved all the backlash they got/still are getting.
And it's not the first time. Let's not forget how they celebrated Diablo 20th anniversary (in 2016) - with a necromancer paid DLC (making "Ultimate Evil edition" not so ultimate anymore) and not remaster of Diablo 1, not remaster of Diablo 2, not Diablo 4 announcement, not with a new addon - but with a limited-time Diablo 3 event, available only for 1 month, in January.
Hopefully it will be like D2 not cartoony fam. friendly 3 or a copy paste NetEase game. I will buy it if it's like 2.
Can't resist Get's your phone ready boys
That’s good news that should have been told already lol. A teaser or something. This and that Warcraft 3 remake are the only blizzard games I care about.
Somehow I doubt they care what a few butthurt fanboys have to say about D4 while counting their WoW and Hearthstone multi million dolllar ventures.
