Diablo Immortal Is Just One of Several Mobile Games in Development at Blizzard

There are more mobile titles in development under Blizzard, both internally and through external partners.

Diablo Immortal may have set the world aflame with the ire of fans, much like hell itself, but it's not the only mobile game Blizzard has in development. At a press conference for Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon 2018 following the busy weekend's droplets of news, executive producer Allen Adham, alongside lead designer Wyatt Cheng, revealed the news.

"In terms of Blizzard's approach to mobile gaming, many of us over the last few years have shifted from playing primarily desktop to playing many hours on mobile, and we have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles across all of our IPs," Adham said. "Some of them are with external partners, like Diablo Immortal. Many of them are being developed internally only, and we'll have information to share on those in the future. I will say also that we have more new products in development today at Blizzard than we've ever had in our history and our future is very bright."

While the news of other mobile iterations of Blizzard's familiar properties—which includes World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Overwatch—may make some fans' skin crawl, it's notably not decrying the future of any PC or console games. As usual, that will likely remain Blizzard's first priority. Remember: It's okay to feel disappointed that a Diablo 4 isn't right around the corner, just keep that bummer attitude in check.
