Diablo Immortal Won’t Work Without An Active Internet Connection

Blizzard president on Diablo Immortal:

Diablo fans are not happy.

Needless to say, Diablo fans anticipating a core game announcement weren't thrilled, causing a backlash the developer hasn't faced in a long while.

After a disastrous reveal of a new mobile game - Diablo Immortal - at Blizzcon 2018, Blizzard has reiterated that there are more Diablo titles in development.

Blizzard has responded to the backlash. Diablo Immortal will also feature Battle.net integration. "The truth is that we have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects even after announcing [Immortal]".

A lot of fans don't seem to believe any of this though and have accused Blizzard of trying to deflect attention away from the unpopular Diablo Immortal announcement.

Wisconsin Girl, 10, Charged With Homicide in Daycare Killing of Infant
Not long after, they were able to determine that the 10-year-old girl was behind the infant's injuries and subsequent death. The Star Tribune reported the girl appeared in court in handcuffs and was charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

To not launch a new PC version of a Diablo game is slapping the face of consumers, and the title's more than 20 year legacy. Pre-registered players are eligible to participate in future beta tests and earn in-game rewards, as well as receive news and updates.

"Diablo 3" embraced a portable format through a November 2 release for Nintendo Switch and "Diablo Immortal" will continue down the same path. Angry fans pushed into BlizzCon's Q&A sessions to vent directly to the development team, while others flooded the company's social media channels with comments in an attempt to be heard.

Yes, Blizzard is going to actually release this cereal but whether that will extend outside of the U.S. remains to be seen. We are not sure if it will be free-to-play or be a paid game, but we hope either way it goes that people will really enjoy the game.

"I think it's totally understandable" Cheng said, according to VG247. Indeed, Blizzard teased some Diablo-related news in a blog post a couple of weeks before the convention.

Blizzard, which operates one of the largest online-gaming services in the world, is known for blockbusters including World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, the Warcraft, and StarCraft. Why they didn't show it off at Blizzcon, however, is beyond me. According to sources who spoke to Kotaku, Blizzard had meant to tease Diablo IV, which is indeed in development, but decided at the last minute they weren't yet ready to commit.
