The game Diablo Immortal was surprised by the surprising reactions
Yesterday, during a BlizzCon Q & A session following the announcement of the mobile game Diablo Immortal, a fan asked jokingly if this is a joke.
This was the beginning of a very long weekend for Blizzard. The company expected the fans to be excited and not prepared for the level of criticism they received.
At the BlizzCon 2018 event this weekend, Blizzard officially announced the Immortal Diablo. This is a mobile game for MMORPG basically available for smartphones and tablets.
But while it sounds like a pretty good concept, the reactions Blizzard faced in revealing the Immortal Diablo were staggering. That's because many fans did not like the ad, especially since many were eagerly awaiting Blizzard's Diablo 4.
Fans expressed their dissatisfaction during the question and answer session on various online platforms and forums. It looks like Blizzard did not expect this and the fans would be angry.
According to Blizzard executive producer and co-founder Allen Adham, who spoke to Kotaku during an interview with BlizzCon, "We know our audience is passionate about PCs and consoles. we announced that we were taking Diablo to the consoles, but also when we announced Hearthstone. "
Immortal Diablo is not the first game to be faced with such negative reactions. A few years ago, when Activision announced the Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare, the game was received with a negative feedback.
But he managed to be the best-selling console game in 2016. Players may change their mind in Diablo Immortal after they have the Blizzard game. But for now, it seems that many are not very excited about this announcement.
