Blizzard denies it canceled a Diablo 4 announcement at BlizzCon

Blizzard denies pulling Diablo 4 announcement from BlizzCon 2018

Apparently, the backlash Diablo Immortal continues to receive hasn't scared Blizzard away from mobile. "We have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles across all of our IPs".

Despite hinting that Diablo 4 wouldn't be at BlizzCon, a lot of fans were outraged when the only mention of the series was Diablo Immortal, which is set between the second and third games.

Though substantiated reports suggest that Diablo 4 is still happening and possibly could have been announced at BlizzCon 2018, that hasn't stopped the gaming community from failing to move on from the Diablo Immortal announcement and continued to care way too much about a mobile game that doesn't tangentially impact their life. The magnitude of the Diablo Immortal reveal's negativity has escalated much bigger than necessary, but even though that's the case, the response from Blizzard needs to be elevated, too. He said he understands players are hungry for more Diablo on PC and console, and reiterated that Blizzard has multiple teams working on different games in the franchise.

Many of them have been keeping their fingers crossed, and they were hoping that the new game that's announced for the series would be Diablo IV. "So we haven't forgotten about them".

But the former federal prosecutor went from being one of Trump's closest campaign advisers to an outcast. The Democrats, who won the House in the mid-terms, have vowed to protect it.

Everyone is disappointed and it's expected that this mobile game will not turn out to be a success so we will have to wait to see how Activation tackles this all.

Pete Stiwel, in charge of the division Blizzard's Classic Cams has announced that the game will be available at the end of the next year, i.e. 31 December 2019.

The four main franchises of Blizzard are Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch. Back in August Blizzard put out a video called The Future of Diablo, but even that just said the same thing we've heard elsewhere about there being "multiple Diablo projects" in the works - which, to its credit, Blizzard has been very vocal about.

This was initially released on PC before it got ported to mobile. It's literally gutting the game to shape it around the mobile monetization model.
