Diablo Immortal is one of the most infamous games of 2018 and it isn't even out yet. Since its debut fans have been livid about Diablo coming to mobile and how the biggest reveal at BlizzCon was  Diablo Immortal. Speaking to Digital Trends Blizzard is planning to bring more IPs to mobile devices.

Dan Elggren, Production Director for Diablo Immortal and Incubation, and Allen Adham, a Blizzard Co-Founder and Executive Producer of Incubation spoke to Digital Trends about the future of Blizzard and Diablo Immortal.

Adham: Yea, so a few years ago with Hearthstone, it was designed originally for desktop, but as a happy sort of coincidence it worked well for mobile. That opened our eyes to a broader opportunity. Then it’s just been a question of surfacing the teams and resources and designs to make this happen.

I can say, without getting overly specific, that we have big plans for the mobile space. It’s a big initiative for us across Blizzard, and you can expect to see more mobile titles from us spanning all of our IPs at some point in the future.

Adham touched on the backlash and how fans were expecting either Diablo 4 or a remake of the either Diablo or Diablo 2. 

That’s right. So we tried to get ahead of that expectation a few weeks ago, we put out a blog post a few weeks ago. What we said was we have multiple Diablo teams working on multiple projects. We want them to know this isn’t instead of other things we’re doing, and in fact we’re doing a lot, and this is additive. We hoped that would allay concerns, but we knew despite that our most engaged, most passionate fans and players here at this show would only be satisfied with one thing.

I can say to them, we have not forgotten you. We’ll have more news to share at some point in the future. We’re also hardcore Diablo PC and console fans. Diablo is a tentpole franchise at Blizzard and we continue to work on many things in the Diablo franchise.

What are you takes on Diablo Immortal, let us know in the comments below!
