Blizzard doesn't have 'any plans' for Warcraft 4... at least, not yet

Activision Earnings & The Fallout from Its Diablo Mobile Fiasco

Blizzard denies pulling Diablo 4 announcement from BlizzCon 2018

"Many of us over the last few years have shifted from playing primarily desktop to playing many hours on mobile." .

Some fans are anxious about the statement claiming that "many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles" may take away from PC and console titles. People were really angry about Diablo Immortal's announcement as a mobile game, despite the fact that Blizzard had warned everyone weeks in advance that Diablo 4 probably wasn't going to be there.

In brief: Blizzard incurred the combined wrath of (most) gamers when the only Diablo title it revealed at BlizzCon was a mobile game called Diablo Immortal.

Even with the controversial news of Diablo: Immortal Blizzard still confirmed Diablo 4 was in production but simply not ready to show at this year's Blizzcon.

Blizzcon is over but Activision-Blizzard is still suffering from the Diablo Immortal Reveal as company's stock value has dropped by nearly 7%.

Adham said Blizzard chose to create a mobile version of Diablo (and, I would assume, other games that have yet to be announced) because mobile technology now enables a degree of fidelity that's comparable to PC and console gaming.

The AirDots are priced at 199 Yuan (approx Rs. 2,100) and will be coming with Bluetooth 5 .0 connectivity for wireless streaming. For instance, Apple AirPods is valued at $159, while Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is releasing the same thing for almost $30.

Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell had participated in an interview with GameSpot in which he has revealed that the company now has no plans for Warcraft 4. But they did so while acknowledging that their fan base has expectations for a game more in line with the core series they're familiar with.

"We've seen some interesting reaction to the announcement", Brack said.

No matter how powerful the mobile platform can be, I, for one do not want to tap on glass to control a video game.

The four main franchises of Blizzard are Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch.

Blizzard chose to create a mobile version of Diablo (as well as other hitherto unannounced projects) because mobile technology is better than ever. "We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right", said the company, in a statement.

This was initially released on PC before it got ported to mobile.
