My major issue for Diablo "immortal" is that they hyped it up to be a big thing ever since they announced the various projects. The game isn't remotely any different from D3 in the slightest, sure the story is "different" and there are a few new abilities but otherwise it's a just a D3 "lite" just for Mobile that they are chalking it up as a "new" game. I'm not mad, but rather disappointed. I can understand wanting to reach out to Chinese mobile gaming community, but with nothing else but this being announced it really feels like they truly don't care about the true Diablo fans. I would have been fine if they had mentioned a DLC in the works or the dreadful D4 but they didn't. I just don't know how to feel about Diablo anymore, as a fan it's starting to get hard to defend the developer team and Blizzard on this beloved franchise that was created by Blizzard North.

@Rhondis Did you read Deadset's first impressions on the game? And I agree about the bad hype around that game. All they had to do was to confirm that there was a new PC game coming up and then giving us Diablo Immortal as a side game in the meantime.

      Executive Producer Allen Adham and Principal Game Designer Wyatt Cheng confirmed at BlizzCon's Diablo Immortal press conference that many of Blizzard's best developers are currently working on new mobile titles across all IPs.
      Highlights
      No autoplay is planned for the game right now. Diablo Immortal does not have the Witch Doctor. The six classes have been chosen to represent a variety of playstyles. The game will have content updates over time and the plan is to release additional classes in the future. In terms of Blizzard's approach to mobile gaming, they have many of their best developers now working on new mobile titles across all IPs. Some of them are with external partners like Diablo Immortal, many of them are being developed internally only and they'll have information to share in the future. They have more new products in development today than they've ever had in their history and the future is "very bright". Diablo Immortal is being designed so that everybody can play it from all ages. The game won't be mature-rated. The level of fidelity on mobile is becoming very close to the kinds of games we can see on PC and console. There are some key differences in play sessions and play patterns. The reason why they're bringing Diablo to mobile is to introduce the game to a much broader audience. Netease has been Blizzard's partner in China for almost 10 years. Skepticism demonstrates intellectual curiosity and what people saw at BlizzCon did not really meet their expectations. Allen Adham repeated that the company is currently working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects for die-hard PC fans.
