Diablo Immortal: Blizzard surprises with PC release

Surprise: Blizzard will not only release the mobile offshoot “Diablo Immortal” exclusively for iOS and Android.

Activision Blizzard has confirmed that the latest Diablo offshoot “Diablo Immortal” will be released on June 2, 2022. The big surprise: Diablo Immortal should also appear for the PC, but initially as an open beta. The developers announced this in a video.

At Blizzcon 2018, where fans were waiting for the long-awaited Diablo 4, the developers “only” announced the mobile offshoot Diablo Immortal – this should appear exclusively for iOS and Android. At the time, Diablo fans were furious because the developers ruled out a PC spin-off. You can read the then news article about the announcement of Diablo Immortal here:

Blizzard is probably still in the bones of the shitstorm of the fans

Probably also to avoid a new shit storm, Activision Blizzard decided to publish an offshoot for the PC as well. The developers have also confirmed cross-play and cross-progression for the Diablo offshoot. So you’ll be able to play cross-platform with friends and access your save on all platforms. You should also be able to play the Free 2 Play offshoot on the PC with either a mouse and keyboard or a controller.

It is doubtful whether Diablo fans will be too impressed by the PC version. In the meantime, the Diablo 2 remake “Resurrected” for consoles and PCs was released in September 2021 and soon, i.e. this year or 2023, the long-awaited Diablo 4 should finally be released.
