Blizzard Interactive is working on mobile titles across all of its intellectual properties, according to executive producer Allen Adham.
No other new mobile games were confirmed by Adham, but he did nod at the fact that the company is interested in creating more mobile games, even hinting at the fact that more unannounced projects are now in production. “In the end, Diablo Immortal is going to fulfill that, and we think that people are going to experience it, and we think that they’re going to love it”. “I think in some cases they’ll be completely new games”. It is a product that was created by the growing popularity of gaming in this type of devices and the need to attract new customers. Pre-registration for Diablo Immortal is available now. It does make us wonder what is coming next, and whether Blizzard will be sucked into the micro-transaction infested game-play that riddles the mobile games market. Last night, during Activision Blizzard’s latest financial results for Q3 2018 and in his first call since taking over from co-founder Mike Morhaime as CEO, new boss J Allen Brack promised “a very authentic Diablo experience” that’d also help bring in a new audience, but said the company had “seen some interesting reactions” in light of Immortal’s reveal (via PC Gamer). Now, however, Brack believes the company can have both profits and excellent mobile games.
“It’s also easy for us to imagine sometime in the future games that are directly linked with cross-play and maybe cross-progression”, he said.
The idea of Blizzard venturing further into mobile isn’t so outlandish.
Moreover, Blizzard knows there are many people who do not have PCs.
“We’ve been making games for close to three decades now, and we’ve made them in that history across many different platforms”, Adham said. “We view this as another platform that’s special in its own ways”.
It is no secret that Blizzard wants to infiltrate the vast market of mobile gaming. Adham made it clear that with Diablo specifically, there are multiple teams working on multiple Diablo games.
During the on-going flurry of controversy surrounding Diablo Immortal, Blizzard Entertainment continues to ensure fans that Diablo Immortal is going to be an exciting, fully-fledged adventure.
“Diablo Immortal” looks very good on mobile. Many Diablo fans were not too happy with the new mobile title after its announcement as they were hoping that Blizzard would announce Diablo IV as the new game.
“Us internally, we kind of reflect our own audience”, Adham said.
