The weekend-long BlizzCon gathering was supposed to celebrate new offerings from the company that has created such popular titles as "Warcraft", "Starcraft", "Diablo" and "Overwatch". While the likes remain consistent, comments and dislikes appear to fluctuate.

Diablo is a somewhat special case when it comes to a potential reveal of a new title in the franchise. And Blizzard's response has been to reassure fans that it is now working on multiple projects.

Diablo Immortal is one of the most infamous games of 2018 and it isn't even out yet. Those identifying as Blizzard's core player base took to YouTube, Reddit, et al to express their dissatisfaction, and the hyperbole machine went into overdrive.

Yes, we know, they don't have to buy it and yes they could just wait for Diablo 4 to be released, but apparently, that's not how things work around here.

The official website for the game offers some detailed previews, revealing characters, locations, and much more.

Diablo Immortal plays in landscape mode and handles movement with a virtual joystick on the left, and abilities with virtual buttons on the right. The note read, "Blizzard severely miscalculated how their fans would respond, which suggests they aren't in touch with their players as maybe they should be". The whole "multiple projects" thing was a phrase we heard over and over from Blizzard at the show. If this report is true, this year we would have got one. "What we see is anybody who actually holds it and plays it feels great about it". So I don't think that the mixed comments are necessarily anything other than when a really passionate audience that desperately wants to see what they hope to see one day. "So hopefully we'll get there".
