Im so dissapointed, lets hope they still have something in the back they dont show us now.

I think after backlash against Diablo Immortal they will just shut down the entire Diablo division because "Screw it! And all of you too"

I don't get why so much upset / sad reactions everywhere. It seems something went missed by everyone: "partnered with Netease" so D Imortal was not made in house at Blizzard. Yet they still hired tons of heads in the head quarter!

Having this in mind D 2.5 sound like a side project and the big one will be heard of next year(or later)!

That also mean that the Diablo Franchise is super active: D3 switch, D Imortal, Something else!

 

Edit: blizzard seem to be announcing their games 1 year in advance max now so will see next year!

D3 on switch is just a dead game on a new platform. Already here you could see that they were giving up.
Now launching 2.5 as a mobile platform proves it. 

So disappointed.

Oh man, that silence when they announced it and like/dislike ratio on trailer. It appears to be made mainly for Chinese market, judging by their partner company (Netease, a mobile game developer studio from China).

That does not make an exuse for showing the audience that they do not even care to pronunce their own flippin' character's names correctly and also that their hyped grand Diablo announcement this year was just a goddamn mobile game. Not even a slight hint towards D2 remaster, D3 DLC or literally ANYTHING ELSE.

So you talked to the head of Diablo development to confirm this? Or is this just your own bias because you're upset that you let your own hype disappoint you?

This indeed is a fair point.

While the PR they did back in Aug made a mess and while I think their could have done the opening better. all of this sound like they know more but can't tell creating a disconnect with the community.

Well anyway twill not stop me playing the next D3 season

I already see how it goes from now on. "Diablo division is not making any money? Check. Fans are pissed beyond any limit? Check. Fans are not throwing money at us because they are pissed at Diablo Division? DOUBLE CHECKED. TRASH IT!"

So you are making your own biased assumptions, even though PR has stated otherwise. Good to know,

Aren't you forgetting that Activision is running the Blizzard now? And that if they see that something (Which is literally ANYTHING) is not giving them any kind of profit they will shut it down without a second thought? And Diablo division is literally running on a thin ice with the anvil in their flippin' arms. If they don't make up for their fiasco at this year's Blizzcon they are gone.

Right, like Blizzard is going to throw away Diablo 4, which will most likely be announced next year. Quit claiming the sky is falling when it isn't. Activision has no say in what departments are going to go for Blizzard. If Activision did, the Classics division would of been gone. But since it isn't, my point stands. Stop whining because your own hype lead you to disappointment.

So it's MY fault that i've waited 6 years for a new diablo game and not a cheap mobile cash-grab? Yeah right i am such an idiot i shoudn't know what I want - Blizzard can literally TELL ME what i want and give it to me. SILLY ME!
For real though you should stop your bootlicking right now. You are embarassing yourself.

I think you are missing the key point, that the original Diablo games were never made by the Blizzard you know. Diablo 1 & 2 were produced by a company called Blizzard North, which essentially dissolved around 2005, and then the mother company ended up owning the rights to Diablo franchise without any of the people who worked on it. I think this showed in Diablo 3 and it will show in every new things they will develop. Or they will sell the rights to instead of developing it themselves like in this case.
Still I think it's totally rightful for fans to throw rude words at Blizz in this case for selling the rights to the Chinese, but from a business standpoint it's an absolutely legitimate decision. Netease probably pays a shitload of money for the Diablo name.

Yes, it's your fault that you let your own hype disappoint you when you know good games take time to make.

They've had that time. And they know it. And they've completely wasted it on this abomination.

And yet you still seemingly ignore the fact that they said there are projects they are not ready to announce yet. But go on, keep being ignorant of the facts and keep making your own assumptions based from nothing.

This is just so sad. This announce like a funeral of one big part of my childhood (D1-2). I allways loved everything about Diablo and was a huge fan of the world, but they now destroyed my all dreams about the sequel of this franchise. Feels like end of the franchise for me.

I can't say I'm not surprised. After many years of disappointing reveals and news, I have to say this is the saddest reveal of them all. From a business perspective it's a great idea, but to the fans who literally played Diablo 3 for years it's the same shit but different format. No way I'm playing Diablo 3 on mobile, I'm already burned out on the PC version. 

R.I.P Diablo franchise. You were fun before you were beat to death by multiple imports.

      With the Season of Nightmares in full swing, Blizzard posted a guide on Ancient and Primal items, where they highlight the difference between them and talk about the ongoing Seasonal bonus, which increases your damage dealt and reduces damage taken by a percentage for each Ancient you equip.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Ancient items truly shine in Season 17: so long as you have no Set bonuses equipped, each Ancient you equip will provide you with a massive 750% boost to damage dealt and 4% reduction in damage taken. For those of you who may have taken a break from gathering loot recently, we thought a quick refresher was in order to clear up any confusion about the differences between Legendary, Ancient, and Primal Ancient items.

      In general, Ancient and Primal Ancient items are more powerful versions of Legendary items. They are identical to Legendary items except that their base attributes (damage or armor) and all non-percentile affixes roll higher values for both minimum and maximum possible rolls.
      Ancient & Primal Ancient Items
      The stats on these items will (generally) be tailored to the character class you are playing when the item drops Set items are also able to roll as both Ancient and Primal Ancient You can’t equip more than one item with the same name, even if one is Ancient and the other isn’t Any percentage-based affix will not be boosted (such as Attack Speed, bonus % to skills or % Critical Hit Chance/Damage) Ancient Items
      Only drop for characters who have reached level 70, and only on Torment level difficulties When dropped, Ancient items share the same orange glow as regular Legendaries You must identify the item to see if it’s an Ancient Once identified, Ancient items have an orange border (or green for Set items) around the item tooltip and say "Ancient" in the item description. They drop from all sources including monsters, chests, Kadala, Horadric Caches, Kanai's Cube, and even crafting at the Blacksmith or Jeweler Primal Ancient Items
      When dropped, Primal Ancient items have a red beam and glow Drops from any source of Legendary item in the game, including Horadric Caches, Kadala, and Kanai's Cube, but only after having successfully completed at least a level 70 Greater Rift solo These items are much rarer than Ancient items and have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes, including the item’s Legendary Power Primal Ancients & Developer Philosophy
      Primal Ancients are for players who have largely completed gearing for their build or finished their Season Journey but want to continue playing. They’re also for non-Seasonal players who have great gear and spend most of their time gaining Paragon Levels and upgrading Legendary Gems. We wanted to extend the excitement of seeing gear drop or spending Blood Shards at Kadala beyond obtaining Ancients in every slot. Primals provide an avenue for dedicated players to complete a build, without feeling like required upgrades.
      We hope that answers any questions you may have about Ancients and Primal Ancients. Now go get ‘em!
