Blizzard has announced that it is bringing Diablo to mobile devices Including Android and iOS platforms, the company announced this today during BlizzCon 2018. The game’s creators promised a “full-fledged action RPG” called Diablo Immortal. Diablo Immortal picks up after Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and will launch for iOS and Android.
The mobile RPG is a massively multiplayer online action game; players will be able to drop in and out of groups and play through “dynamic events” as they travel through Sanctuary. Classes include monk, wizard, crusader, demon hunter, necromancer, and barbarian. Blizzard is currently allowing players to pre-register for a chance to join the game’s upcoming beta.
Blizzard has been silent as of late about the future of Diablo, though job listings discovered earlier this year for an “unannounced Diablo project” suggested that something was on the way. Diablo III launched for PC in 2012, and it rapidly became a best-seller; it was later ported to consoles. The critically acclaimed game launched for the Switch today as a bundle that includes the expansions and other content Blizzard has released over the years.
Now Diablo Immortal is being co-developed by Blizzard and NetEase. According to Blizzard, the game will regularly introduce new characters, storylines, and more as part of a “living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience.”
