    Honestly I don’t think the “sky is falling” attitude is warranted.


    Plenty of people were plenty excited about the past console releases, and I found them to be vastly inferior to the gameplay experience on PC/m&kb. Clearly this didn’t turn enough people off to keep them from making a Switch version. I’m far more put off by the switch version than a new full title for mobile.


    Mobile devices are getting impressive. Whatever one’s personal issue with the features and prices of current gen mobile devices, the simple fact is that they’re successful. Immortal might be a great game - we simply don’t know enough yet.


    Anyone ever play Eternium? I think that game is a “proof of concept” that gesture based controls work well for an iso ARPG (imo a better fit than any controller i’ve played with so far). Now consider that Eternium is not a triple-A title with the kind of team and money behind it that Immortal has/will have.


    If shop transactions run wild in Immortal, only then will I be disappointed. Do we know anything about this yet?


    Regardless - as someone with 26 years of serious gaming (I’d say easily 90% on PC), I think mobile gaming is here to stay, and it is certainly not always a bad thing. Tech and trends move on. Embrace it or be stuck in the past.


    ....... Unless there’s $99 p2w “micro”transactions. Then screw this, torches and pitchforks.


    But until we know more, I simply don’t think the game can be dismissed just because hating on the mobile gaming trend is “cool.”


    sorry, but you are wrong.


    in march next year, RoS will turn five. there is still the same old endgame as of release and that is rifts. now added with artificial difficulty in the form of higher numbers to achieve higher numbers while playing in the constellation of the correct numbers.


    they added the micropaymancer dlc along with some shabby anniversary filter and went silent for the rest of the year until 08.08.2018, where nevalistis told us about the hot burning forges at blizzard and i vaguely remember some tweet that diablo fans will be really excited for blizzcon 2018.

    sure, they didn't hype us. we hyped ourselves. but weren't the signs in our favor? were there any polls or opinions that gave voive to the lack of diablo games on mobile? did we run this game for nearly five years with changing devs and no real development, no real communication about the state or the future and the little wish that there'd be some form of exciting announcement at blizzcon 2018?


    yes, the signs were in our favor. no, nobody asked for mobile. yes, we endured much of the same old, hoping against hope that somewhere a real forge was in fact, really hot.


    this immortal will come to pass. it will have your $99 transactions and i guarantee you, even more. and like every good mobile game, these $99 transactions amount for nearly nothing in the grand scheme. heck, i could buy crystals in galaxy of heroes for the chance of 5-330 (most characters unlock at 30 shards which are gateway drugs, 330 maxes the character out) for $20-$40 and only get 50ish. that is the same in most successful mobile games and diablo immortal won't be the exception to that rule.


    and i tell you: people will suck it up. players like me won't make it past the initial free energy. i never spend much time in one sitting, maybe 30 minutes if a game requires full focus. but after that? you wait real life hours for energy. you get bonus drops for daily logins and if you miss one, you lose your consecutive logins. you get bonus items for playing X hours, while that shiny little button tells you to further that bonus by investing some small amount of money.

    after one month you are fatigued and if it didn't kill the franchise up until then, it will be done by then. mark my words. immortal is an abomination and moneygrab of the worst kind and blizzard deservers every ounce of backlash.

    Wow ... "Do you guys not have phones?" come back reply .... lol I have no desire to play games on my phone, especially a hack and slash. I am not even sure how that is possible on a phone. :) A tablet I can somewhat see but a phone.


    Maybe I am expecting too much from it. It really has to be a dumbed down game.

    yeah, no. ever played some arpg on a tablet? i tried it on a normal ipad 9.7 and on my current ipad pro 12.9. it isn't great, you don't last long and it is for light entertainment, not for long sessions like allnighters in, well, ANY DIABLO GAME TO DATE. :(

    i disliked the videos, reacted with that angry smile on facebook.

    dunno, since every man with a microphone on the blizzcon seems to be a yes-man (except april fools' legend dude), nobody will ask on a professional basis if they really don't have anything else to share. even if there is something in the works, we get set back another year of nothing.


    and i seldom fire a game up on iphone / ipad and really play with all my attention to the game i launched. jeez, i play simpsons: tapped out, galaxy of heroes.. that kind of stuff. fortnite mostly to idle a bit, but 3d stuff is always too much needed interaction while i want to see netflix with the missus. never will i ever find myself in the situation of "oh gee, i have 90% battery left. how to drain it effectively?" and then slump on the couch to play another session of diablo immortal.


    heck, i can't even find the motivation to play d3 the last.. eight? seasons. but now d3 seems to be the superior product..

    Absolutely horrible announcement, more foolish then the Hearthstone one.


    The only thing that even comes out positive is knowing D4 is in the works.


    Honestly I think they are waiting for these other ARPG's coming out to be out, die a little then D4 will be supreme again.


    Well had fun watching my dreams get crushed, I am sure most of us would of made gold compared to the shit shown today.


    GL HF Diablo Fans.

    can we really know that D4 is in the works? and if we judge by the quality of game and UI, which seem to be lower quality-wise than what we already have, do we REALLY want a D4 from this team?

    blizzard spit in our face with hyping blizzcon for diablo fans months before and now giving "us" a mobile game that no one wants. WTF Blizzard?? did you loose your mind.

    sorry, you really don't judge people by their looks. but if wyatt didn't appear to be somewhat lost i don't know what is going on there.

    i dunno what this game is atm, but wyatt seems to be the only one excited.



    edit:


    alright, seems to be some mobile crap. as i tried a few of those ARPGs on my iphones / ipads, they were always very short-lived for me since the handling just isn't mouse+keyboard. and i play a few mobile games regularly, so i don't have any time for this game left.


    but, WHATEVER.


    WoW news weren't that great, but okay. Overwatch got a few nice things, Hearthstone seems to be okayish. Heroes of the Storm also gets nice things, good for them. Warcraft III Reforged stealed the show from all of them. but what the fuck, diablo?

    no remaster? not even some crappy DLC class for d3? no expansion? no d4? not even a mention of anything for the future? just this mobile crap? this franchise, man.

    VR will never gain any attention, it just doesn't add anything besides a big fat price tag.




    As a Vive owner I 100% disagree. Even something like Fallout 4 is an entirely different experience in VR than it is regularly and that was just a port over from the original game. A diablo game designed around VR from the beginning would be absolutely amazingly nuts if done correctly.

    yes, it is a nice gimmick. it also discourages longer play sessions (you mostly have about 40-50 minutes) for most of the people. plus you need a lot of hardware, maybe even space.


    VR can be a nice feature, but we will never see Diablo VR as the next full game title solely focussing on a virtual experience most users cannot even run. blizzard was always on about the playability of their titles even on older machines and they really excel at that. they wouldn't waste resources on a niche feature if you take the steam stats for owned VR sets (<1%).


    and after hellgate: london i doubt that there will be another semi/3d hack n slay, even from blizzard.

    Quote from Skelos_bg»

    Their cash cow might be on life support in 5 years when they release their next gen VR MMO. It could very well be Diablo related and this could very well be the long project they are talking in the last blue post. Can you imagine the noise from the audience if they don't announce D4 this year and instead open with a D3/D2 HD cinematic? They will do worse impression to their show than La La Land best movie award has done to the Oscars - if they don't announce D4 this year they are trolling not only us - this time they are trolling THEMSELVES too, which is costly and they are greedy - a very illogical combination. That said an MMO is not impossible to be in the works atm and the last blue post to be related to it.

    diablo is too niche to be a successful mmo after the warcraft mmo ends (which we will see in ten years or even much much later). VR will never gain any attention, it just doesn't add anything besides a big fat price tag.

    Blizzcon 2018 Opening Ceremony:


    Sean Murray comes on stage to announce that Blizzard sold the Diablo IP to his company; Hello Games


    Sean then goes on to explain that his vision for the franchise will include procedural dungeons, monsters, loot, and of course planets (he calls them Realms of Hell, but they are basically planets).


    When asked what the difference would be between that and D3? Sean shrugs and says, "Over promise and under deliver boys", then walks off stage.


    Jay Wilson then runs on stage and starts beatboxing the theme to, "The Price is Right!" before jumping into the crowd and hammer fisting everyone in the face.


    All is well in world.

    checks out.


    also, you all please stop with a diablo mmo. blizzard wouldn't promote this franchise to be their cash cow killer.

    rumors are fake news, nothing going on really. lets hope for blizzcon, 2 years of no news are enough, we just need someone on blizzcon to come out and say we are working on something, even if they have nothing to actually show us.


    I think this will be the case with everything that has been happening hiring-wise and with how they phrased stuff at last year's con. Announce something with maybe a teaser.
    yes, but diablo did get the shaft at blizzcon last year. it was anniversary year. they should have announced the follow-up, be it successor, expansion or 3.0 for example. their behaviour against their own top franchise really hurt me as someone who got hooked with D1.
