First announced to a cold reception back in 2018, Blizzard Entertainment’s popular Diablo series is making the jump to mobile phones with a spin-off called Immortal. Earlier today the publisher finally locked in a June 2 release date for Android and iOS platforms during a digital event hosted by game director Wyatt Cheng and Adam Fletcher, senior manager of community development.
In a move that is likely to please longtime fans of the franchise, and one that is in stark contrast to its initial plans for the game, the publisher also confirmed that Diablo Immortal will receive a PC version. Further, there will be cross-play functionality between the two.
For those who missed the event, which also offered a detailed look at Diablo Immortal with all-new gameplay footage, you can check out the showcase below.
As alluded to above, Diablo Immortal’s initial announcement at Blizzcon 2018 was met with disdain from fans who had expected the reveal of a new mainline experience titled Diablo 4. What they instead got was a mobile spin-off without any confirmation of a new mainline title, and one rather patronizing response to a fan question that has since gone down as a historic PR blunder on the part of Blizzard.
Of course, since then Blizzard has steadied the ship with the reveal of Diablo 4, and now the confirmation of a PC version of Diablo Immortal.
