Blizzard has a new MMORPG for mobile devices coming...

Back before it was an entire world enjoyed by millions of adventurers Blizzard's Warcraft was best known for being one of the biggest names in the RTS or real-time strategy game. These six classes were the only ones that were shown off at BlizzCon.

"Warcraft 3 is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we've done since", said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment in a prepared statement. In "Diablo Immortal" the story picks up after the events of the "Diablo II" expansion, "Lord of Destruction", wherein the World Stone has been shattered into fragments by the hand of the angel Tyrael. Players will be able to choose a character from one of six classes: Barbarian, Wizard, Demon Hunter, Monk, Crusader and Necromancer.

In their quest to cleanse Sanctuary, players will embark on all manner of thrilling expeditions, including taking part in dynamic events across unique public zones, and hacking and slashing their way through instanced dungeons.

Diablo Immortal is an MMOARPG (massively multiplayer online action RPG), which means that you'll be meeting other players as you wander the game's world. This question was met with unfortunate cheers from some of the crowd who must also have felt slighted that this video game didn't immediately appear to appeal to their personal tastes.

It's not. The team says the game is only coming to iOS and Android for now, and it's doubling down on the choice to keep this game mobile. "We want to do it in a way that feels right for 'Diablo'". 20 years passed in the Diablo Universe between those two games which were released in 2000 and 2012, respectively.

Blizzard's Classic Games division is dedicated to refurbishing timeless titles from the studio's history and modernizing them for a new audience.

Introduced as a remaster for "another Titan" in a knowing what was probably a knowing nod to its lore, the announcement was made by Pete Stilwell, senior producer at Blizzard, during the opening ceremony of BlizzCon 2018.

The announcement came with some official gameplay and it will be interesting to see how Blizzard adopts the game to a touch-screen format.
