Diablo: Immortal - which Blizzard is co-developing with NetEase - is no mere port of any previous Diablo PC or console game.

That's right; we did not see the reveal or tease of Diablo 4. Now the team at Blizzard Entertainment have unveiled a new game as part of the Diablo franchise for mobile devices only (Android and iOS) - Diablo Immortal.

On the Battle.net forums, Blizzard explains that in order to ensure everyone with a virtual ticket gets a chance to play, there will be strict session limits. Well, for one, it's a mobile game.

Blizzcon 2018 (2-3 November) ended up with some spectacular announcements yet polarising responses from the community.

Everything is available to you via touchscreen on your phone so all you'll have to do is click on the different abilities to use them. After months and months of rumours, speculation, and a bit of expectation dampening from Blizzard itself, Diablo Immortal was officially announced.

In a first for the game, Heroes of the Storm is introducing a character born entirely of the Nexus setting, having never appeared in a Blizzard game or property before.

The boss fights look interesting, the levels look more dynamic than ever before, and, to be frank, I like the Diablo Immortal aesthetic more than I like Diablo 3's aesthetic.

The game won't be coming out for a while, but those at Blizzcon will be able to try out the game on the show floor.

The fan who asked the question later posted on Reddit as user Dontinquire (h/t Eurogamer), saying he felt "terrible" for Diablo principle designer Wyatt Cheng, who had to field the comment on stage.

Blizzard hasn't revealed whether or not Warcraft 3: Reforged will launch with any new gameplay tweaks or features, but fans can look forward to an overhauled UI, remastered maps, and a new 4K resolution option.

Blizzard even reiterated these points just two weeks ago, stating that while it knows "what many of you are hoping for, we can only say that 'good things come to those who wait, ' but evil things often take longer".
