Blizzard's president J. Allen Brack said that Diablo Immortal isn't trying to replicate the PC experience, and not every game can appeal to every gamer anyway.
And some games appeal to no one. Case in point.
While I would like that to be true, I do not think so :D
That's simply not true, :)
Don't care about Diablo Immortal, just make sure Diablo 4 has gone the MMO route and reveal it this year's BlizzCon. Don't fail me Blizzard.... *shakes fist*
Literally no one wants diablo 4 to be an mmo.
Tell that to everyone who been begging for Lost Ark to come to the West.
Why would you even want that?! Lol Diablo would be forever ruined if it went the MMO route. How about asking Blizzard for an MMO game that IS NOT Diablo. The vast majority of Diablo fans were PISSED that they even announced a mobile version of the next entry in the Diablo franchise, and your next best idea is to destroy the franchise by making it go the MMO route?! I can’t even begin to comprehend the thinking behind this logic. One of the major things that makes Diablo so great in the first place is that it IS NOT an MMO or some online-multiplayer focused game, and actually has a full single player campaign with the ability to play Local or even couch co-op with you’re friends.
Maybe because my all time favourite MMO is Ultima Online which was an isometric camera angle like Diablo. You're saying its better to have a game that has a 10-20 hour campaign that ends and you just repeat that over an over instead of a game that continues to get content and expansions and never ends like how WoW has lasted 15 years? Yeah I'll rather have the latter. Theres plenty of singleplayer games out there I'm looking forward to Last of Us 2 and Cyberpunk. But Diablo is a co-op focused loot driven game it doesnt make sense for it to be treated like a singleplayer game.
Maybe they should make a game that satisfies the blizzard audience on PC. Activision has tightened their grip on blizzard.
These devs should just own up to they're motivations instead of spewing nonsensical blsht, so it can't be compared to either PC or console versions of Diablo playing like Diablo, all the while having the Diablo brand attached to it, I guess little Timmy and his mom with her credit card number is you're target audience, just a pity they don't knowno wtf Diablo is
China has a 500 million smart phone player base, Activision/Blizzard are pulling all there resources to tap into that market.
China also just outlawed any game that portrays violence. This game is dead in the water.
Diablo mobile is only going to appeal to those that have never heard of Diablo. Diablo has been supported by loyal fans and no one else really, and they got the shaft. What a muppet.
Its still Blizzard. I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Plus it will be fee to download and play. If its bad, we lose nothing. But agree with everyone else, bring on Diablo 4.
The fact that Diablo Immortal is on mobile means it appeals to no one.
Except for all the people that will download and play it on their phones?
So if it's not for the Diablo fans who is it for?
Deez Nutz.. haha, couldn't resist. I did not read the whole article, did he really say that or that they are not trying to replicate the Pc Diablo? I am a Diablo fan and will give it a try for the hell of it..its free.
For Diablo fans.
Blizzard is dead. They are Blizzard in name only. All the talented people that made that company great have long since left
