diablo iv

Blizzard has been taking one hell of a beating after it revealed Diablo Immortal over the weekend at Blizzcon 2018. A mobile-only title, it's safe to say that a lot of fans were expecting more from the event's big opening ceremony, which promised to reveal the future of the Diablo franchise.

In an effort to dampen the backlash -- which, let's be honest, is an impossible task at this point -- Blizzard has reiterated that Diablo Immortal is not the only Diablo project that it has in the works. "We have multiple projects -- Diablo projects -- being worked on by multiple teams," Blizzard's Wyatt Cheng said during a panel at the aforementioned convention. "Diablo Immortal is one of those projects we're very excited about, but there are others."

Now, we've known for a while that other Diablo stuff is in development -- Blizzard has said that at least a couple of times. However, we still can't work out why the company didn't soften the blow of Diablo Immortal with a teaser for something else.

Diablo IV is inevitable, but it's pretty crazy how badly Blizzard has judged this entire situation.
