If you were hoping for Diablo 4, you're going to have to wait a while longer.

The backlash from the announcement can be boiled down to fans excitement and desire for a sequel to 2012's Diablo 3. There was, however, the most energy-sucking announcement of them all; a mobile partnership between Blizzard Entertainment and Netease to create a "mobile massively multiplayer online action-role-playing game" for Android and iOS called Diablo Immortal.

Diablo Immortals is now set to release sometime in 2019.

Everything Blizzard: All the news about the video game company and their franchises.

Diablo Immortal's storyline will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III.

Once a character and class is selected, players will be able to find and upgrade gear, craft new items and team up to raid dungeons for all kinds of loot.

Djokovic wins to mark return to world number one
The 31-year old Serb, who has won both Wimbledon and the US Open this year, will take the world number one spot on Monday. Dimitrov was a victor over Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (10), 6-4 in his debut with Andre Agassi in the coaching box.

If you're wondering how the gameplay on a touchscreen will be, don't worry. Most of the anger stems from Blizzard stating in August that it had "multiple Diablo projects in the works", fuelling speculation that it would announce Diablo 4, or a Diablo remaster, at Blizzcon.

Six character classes will be available - Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard - with more planned in future updates. Yes, but I won't dismiss Diablo Immortal out of hand.

Interested parties can pre-register for special rewards and be among the first to play Diablo Immortal. "And then around the world in many regions, it's their primary gaming device, and so it's always been our aspiration [to bring games to them]". The world stone's corruption eventually spread through its many shards until events led to the revival of the demon lord Diablo in the events of "Diablo III".

In one of the major highlights from today Blizzcon livestream, it was revealed that WoW Classic would have a release date in 2019.

There will be nine outdoors areas in which to explore and fight for the game's initial launch, and you can expect to encounter lots of new creatures never before seen in a Diablo game.
