Diablo certainly seems like it'll be a tough game to translate from PCs and console to mobile devices due to the number of effects that go on in pretty much every area.

As shown in a video of the event by the Skill Up Twitter account, a lone man rose from the crowd to ask what his question.

The response from the presenter on stage was handled deftly and with kindness despite just having their hard work reduced in front of a live audience.

Players will have many opportunities to meet and socialize with other demon slayers while wandering the wilds of Sanctuary, or while conducting less-dangerous business-like upgrading gear, crafting items, or forming groups before setting off on their next adventure-in the city of Westmarch, Diablo Immortal's sprawling central hub. Diablo Immortal won't just pay lip service to old Diablo games with lands both new and old, though. Today during the BlizzCon 2018 open ceremonies Blizzard announced Diablo Immortal, an action-RPG set in a persistent MMO world, which the studio is positioning as the next major entry in the series. And many are fans are convinced Diablo Immortal is nothing more than NetEase's Endless of God, slightly reworked and reskinned.

Diablo Immortals is now set to release sometime in 2019.

Those eager to join the fight are encouraged to visit http://www.diabloimmortal.com to pre-register for special rewards and be among the first to experience Diablo Immortal. Custom games are in and the remaster will launch with an updated World Editor.

People are also mad that Blizzard didn't announce new content for Diablo 3 and didn't announce Diablo 4, the latter of which the company expressly said it wasn't going to reveal.

Diablo Immortal will feature six customizable Diablo character classes: Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard.
