Since 1997, Blizzard’s Diablo series has been a much-beloved PC staple, offering up hundreds of hours of fast-paced dungeon-crawling and loot-grinding set in a dark fantasy world overrun by demons and other monstrous creatures. In more recent years, these games have made their way onto other platforms, embarking on the voyage from PC to Mac, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo consoles and granting even larger audiences access to the devilishly fun series. Now, however, Diablo is preparing for its most ambitious and widespread release yet: mobile.
Announced back in 2018, Diablo Immortal is the first mobile-based MMO in the Diablo series–a fact which, admittedly, both shocked and even frustrated fans. However, while Immortal might not be for everyone, there certainly is enough jam-packed in the pocket-sized game that we think some fans might enjoy. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.
As of right now, Blizzard has yet to confirm a release date for Diablo Immortal, though the company’s most recent indication is sometime in the first half of 2022. While this might come as a bit of a shock considering the game was first announced back in 2018, the studio says this is due to the community being a “key collaborator” on the game’s development.
