Diablo Mobile Backlash

Most BlizzCon announcements are met with enthusiasm from the gathering of Blizzard fans, but the company really stepped in it with yesterday's announcement of Diablo: Immortal, a new installment in the action/RPG series being created for mobile devices. The response on the Diablo Reddit raking Blizzard over the coals suggests there may have been a better way to handle this, as they made the mistake of hyping this announcement which raised hopes for a proper PC game. As an example of the discontent this is causing, one can look at the Diablo Immortal Cinematic Trailer on YouTube. Blizzard's cinematics usually generate incredibly positive responses, but as of this writing, the clip has 7.7k upvotes and 232k downvotes.

Yeah, good find. Pretty much spot on.

As to all the bullshit articles claiming we are all entitled. Yeah, dude. You are a BUSINESS. You give us what we want, or you go broke trying to shovel shit at us that we don't want. Clearly, by the massive backlash, this is NOT what Diablo fans want. I mean, who the hell came into a meeting and thought a mobile Diablo game was something Blizzard fans would eat up? They should have fired that person on the spot.

Oh my god, like, we should totally do a mobile game for Diablo, they are SOOOOOO hot right now.
You're fired, Liz! Clean your shit out of your desk and get out!

Why are you assuming this is a zero sum game? Because Blizzard is making Diablo Immortal does not mean we will never see Diablo 4 (undoubtedly it's in development). It probably doesn't even mean Diablo 4 will be delayed because NetEase is most likely doing the vast majority of development. Besides, like you said, they are a business. They see the massive mobile market in Asia and they see a good business opportunity. Can't fault a business for wanting to make money.

I concur.

well, cause we are well aware of the b.s game devs give gamers these days.. Hence the anger during the Q&A.
