Blizzard planned Diablo 4 announcement at BlizzCon 2018

The knowledge that a full-fat Diablo game is on the way may have positioned Immortal as a snack to be enjoyed in the meantime, not unlike the relationship between Fallout Shelter and Fallout 4.

If you've been following the events and goings on at BlizzCon this past weekend then you'd be aware of the whole controversy surrounding the reveal of the mobile-only Diablo Immortal - one of "multiple Diablo project now in the works" but the only new Diablo thing at the show.

Many fans were really excited at the prospect of a new Diablo game, but their excitement quickly turned sour as Diablo Immortal was announced only for mobile devices. Blizzard had a stellar lineup at the event, the opening preview event even featured an announcement from Bungie as they announced that Destiny 2 will be available for free on PC till 18 November.

Kotaku has updated its story, claiming that the video does exist, but the timeline of Blizzard's announcement isn't clear.

With no word on a fourth proper Diablo entry, Diablo Immortal felt like a betrayal of the franchise to some and a cheap consolation prize to others. The publisher also confirmed that multiple teams are working on Diablo projects, and they will be announced at the right time. The analyst noted the Diablo Immortal game's release date is uncertain, given that the game isn't finished. Less so in the West, but we're now starting to see some games that are bringing that mechanic to the West. We just play games, and a lot of us play mobile games. For the first time ever, Diablo players will be able to answer the call to battle on their phones.

Regardless of how you feel about Diablo Immortal, sometimes you just have to appreciate a good dunk when you see one.

Blizzard went out and told Kotaku the truth. "We love it. We hope our fans understand what we're saying when we say that". So I actually think that those two items are being conflated. "So it's us taking inspiration from some of the work they've done already".

Blizzard may want to rethink one of their announcements over the weekend.

Yesterday, we have reported that Diablo 4 was going to be announced at this year's edition of BlizzCon.
