Oh, right, this is still in the works
It hadn’t struck me until just now that Diablo Immortal – that not-quite-right, built-for-mobile take on Diablo that we first heard about in 2018 – is still unreleased. I figured it had already slipped by.
The latest footage comes from ChinaJoy 2020, and if nothing else, you’ve gotta see the Necromancer’s fleshy warriors. (For what it’s worth, they looked like skeletons in the BlizzCon 2019 trailer.) The other returning classes – the Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Wizard, Crusader, and Monk – aren’t as jarring. Otherwise? Immortal is the same multiplayer-focused demon-mashing experience you remember.
Someone will play this and enjoy it for what it is, but I am not that person. Watching the Demon Hunter do her thing makes me want to reinstall Heroes of the Storm, though. Chris planted the seed.
Please be good, Diablo IV. We’re counting on you.
