Just as Diablo III crops up on Nintendo Switch it's been revealed at the opening ceremony of BlizzCon 2018 that there's a title in the works for mobile now called Diablo Immortal. It's a pretty big deal all in all.

Taking place between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III, Diablo Immortal is apparently a true-to-form hack 'n' slash adventure built for mobile. Developed in partnership with NetEase, you'll only be able to get this game on iOS and Android.

Set five years after the Worldstone was shattered, it's up to you to clean up the Archangel Tyrael's mess as its fragments remain, tainting the ground they touch. The corrupted Worldstone pieces bring forth ancient evils and, of course, you're there to fight back.

With six classes, epic new abilities, a whole bunch of new areas to explore, a new story, and more, it'll be interesting to see how this MMOARPG fares. Likely, it'll be free to play, but that's not the only thing rubbing players up the wrong way it seems.

From YouTube comments, a hefty dislike ratio on its gameplay trailer (above), twitter discussions, and plenty more, a good chunk of Diablo's fanbase is kicking off following this announcement. Though, I'm pretty sure we saw a similar reaction to The Elder Scrolls: Blades too.

What do you guys think of the announcement? Are you dying to play it? Think it's an awful idea? Let us know in those comments below.
