Why is Blizzard Creating Diablo Immortal?

Why is Blizzard Creating Diablo Immortal?

Ever since Diablo was released back in 1996, the action-packed dungeon crawler has remained a staple in the gaming world. Not only did it blow all of the competition away, but it also spawned several imitators from companies looking to recreate the immensely entertaining, dungeon-crawling grind that the Diablo series is now famous for.

Why A Mobile Game?

After Blizzard was able to capture the hearts of console players when they released Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, it seemed the game developers could do no wrong. This is probably why their decision to create a mobile version of the classic ARPG, though undoubtedly controversial, didnít completely turn players away. Some players are even excited about their favorite game finally reaching smartphones.

After all, dystopian adventures and post-apocalyptic RPGs are all the rage right now. One of the most successful console games so far this year is the Resident Evil II remake, while popular mobile game Plants vs Zombies continues to draw in more players looking for a quirky take on the end of days. Meanwhile, even the iGaming industry is embracing the fad, with apocalyptic slot game Lost Vegas receiving tons of praise and positive reviews.

That said, casino games always seem to have been ahead of the curve when it comes to creepy fantasy, as well as when it comes to mobile gaming. Jackpotcity is referenced here as having over 400 slots including Immortal Romance, Lost Vegas and several other edgy games. All of these titles are available to play on mobile, giving players on-the-go access to their favorite games wherever and whenever they feel like playing. Really, the iGaming industry is ahead of the game when it comes to mobile gaming and gloomy games, so it's no surprise that massive companies like Blizzard are keen to follow the industry's lead.

What Do We Know About Diablo Immortal?

Though there is no official release date for the game's release yet, rumor has it that we will see it in both Google Play and Apple Store by the end of 2019. What we do know is that the title is being worked on by leading industry expert NetEase to ensure that the click and slash system Diablo players have come to know and love will translate properly to touchscreen.

As for the story, it's thought that Diablo Immortal will begin five years after the end of Diablo II. That's right: We'll be exploring exactly what happened following the destruction of the Worldstone and finding out how the world of Diablo III got so... miserable. Tyrael, Malthael, Leah and Deckard will all be making appearances, in addition to Valla and Josen, who both previously appeared in Heroes of the Storm. As for enemies, Baal and Skarn are probably going to making appearances during the mobile game.

As if that wasn't exciting enough, apparently Blizzard will be introducing new abilities and techniques that have never appeared in a Diablo game before, and though the six classes will remain the same, they will apparently work together in a variety of new ways.

We're sure more information will come out about the game before it officially reaches smartphones, especially since it's sure to be a big release. For now, though, we'll just have to wait and hope that Blizzard doesn't mess it up.
