KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The fan stepped up to the microphone and asked Diablo: Immortal developer Wyatt Cheng if Diablo: Immortal was an out of season April Fool's joke, which drew a cheer and some whistles from the crowd.

Now, we're sure that Diablo IV is coming at some point.

Blizzard's previous promises of "multiple Diablo projects" bore fruit during the keynote with the announcement of Diablo Immortal, a "full-fledged action-RPG you can play everywhere with everyone".

If you were hoping for Diablo 4, you're going to have to wait a while longer. Blizzard is promising that there will be six Diablo classes at launch (Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard) as well as regularly introducing new storylines, playable characters and new challenges.




The announcement is Diablo: Immortal which isn't a sequel to Diablo 3 but instead takes place during the events of Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and the beginning of Diablo 3. There's no Diablo Immortal price yet though given NetEase's expertise in free-to-play games, we won't be surprised to see Diablo Immortal be a free-to-play game with micro-transactions. It will include touch controls which will allow players to begin an ability, charge it up, aim it, and fire it from just a single thumb input.

"Diablo Immortal takes the series' dark, gothic fantasy world of Sanctuary and inimitable Diablo gameplay, and puts it in your pocket", said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.

The news comes from reddit user /u/justMaku, who revealed that game supports three amiibo - a default/generic character, a treasure goblin, and a demon. Today is also the day that you can pick up the GameStop exclusive Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle for $359.99 with free shipping. As for the release date, we're in "coming soon" territory.
