Blizzard reportedly pulled a Diablo 4 teaser from BlizzCon 2018

Diablo-Immortal

'We generally don't comment on rumours or speculation, but we can say that we didn't pull any announcements from Blizzcon this year or have plans for other announcements.

The problem, as many see it, is that while Blizzard did advise fans in October to temper their expectations for Diablo at BlizzCon, the studio has also been teasing "multiple Diablo projects" for months.

Diablo 2 producers and former Blizzard employee Mark Kern said the reveal of Diablo Immortal is an example of Blizzard "not understanding gamers anymore".

A release date for the iOS and Android game is yet to be announced.

Blizzard now has a PR battle going on now to get people to give Diablo: Immortal a chance.

In the continuing saga of one of the most viral stories in gaming, Blizzard Entertainment has responded to a rumor that Diablo 4 was meant to be announced at BlizzCon 2018 last weekend in addition to the as-yet poorly received Diablo Immortal mobile game.

But for reasons unknown, the plan changed a couple of weeks prior to BlizzCon, and the Diablo 4 reveal was scrapped. Initially, Kotaku reported that this was meant to be the closer for BlizzCon 2018's presentation, but this has been disputed by Blizzard. The fan backlash against the game was strong enough that Activision Blizzard's stock price was impacted. There was much criticism with many saying that the Diablo: Immortal reveal should have been followed by confirmation that Blizzard is working on Diablo 4, a strategy adopted by Bethesda when it announced Elder Scrolls: Blades before confirming The Elder Scrolls VI. However, according to two anonymous insiders who spoke to Kotaku, Blizzard originally planned on closing with an announcement for Diablo 4, but cut it from the opening ceremony at the eleventh hour. The evidence has accumulated since 2016, four years after Diablo III's release on PC, and Blizzard danced around a confirmation by telling us several new Diablo projects are in the works-including the one fans "really want".

The announcement of Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon went about as badly as it could have.
