Since its announcement at BlizzCon final evening, Diablo Immortal has confronted fierce backlash from followers who aren’t happy with the concept of a cell iteration of the Diablo franchise and are involved Immortal represents a brand new course for the sequence. But on the stage tonight in Anaheim, Blizzard’s Wyatt Cheng stopped simply in need of confirming the existence of Diablo 4.
“We love our Diablo community,” Cheng stated. “And our community is a passionate one.”
While he remained upbeat, he was clearly referencing the furor that’s come within the wake of the Diablo Immortal announcement, which he was on stage Saturday evening to clarify in additional depth.
“We have multiple Diablo projects being worked on by multiple teams,” he stated, and the group cheered. “Diablo Immortal is one of those projects we’re very excited about, but there are others.”
An viewers member shouted, “Like what?”
Cheng smiled and pressed on with the panel and Q&A session for Diablo worlds, however his affirmation of a number of Diablo initiatives in Blizzard’s pipeline – notably after 24 hours of fan backlash – appears very near affirmation that Diablo Four is on the best way.
One of the initiatives Cheng is referring to might be the animated Diablo series with Netflix, however “multiple projects” appears to counsel there are others as effectively.
Naturally, nothing is a positive factor till there’s official affirmation of the undertaking, and Blizzard has scrapped initiatives (bear in mind Starcraft Ghost and Warcraft Adventures?) effectively into improvement earlier than. The firm additionally is understood for taking its time earlier than making bulletins or releasing games.
But Diablo followers have been hoping to listen to bona fide phrase of a sequel for years now, and the mobile-bound Diablo Immortal wasn’t what they wished to listen to at BlizzCon. Cheng’s phrases tonight could also be as shut because it will get to an official affirmation of a mainline sequel to Diablo III that they get for an additional yr.
