Rhykker scored an interview with Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham. Originally, Rhykker thought he was interviewing Wyatt Cheng, and he had to scrap most of his pre-written questions to accommodate someone with the caliber in top-tier direction at Blizzard.
Allen Adham has spent the past two years working on the Incubation department working on multiple mobile video games in addition to Diablo Immortal.
One particular moment in the interview reveals that Blizzard has never had a unannounced games line-up portfolio as large as what they have now in development. Even more striking that most of those unannounced games are coming to PC and Consoles.
The BlizzCon 2018 Diablo Immortal Q&A panel was actually sort of a Deep Dive that revealed details about the six classes, and some of the game story set 5 years after the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Afterwards, the developers opened the mic to welcome questions from the fans.
Rhykker recently posted his thoughts on what happened during the Diablo Immortal announcement. It’s heartbreaking to listen to his experience. However, he shared a clip from his BlizzCon livestream where Nevalistis said the following: “I gotta say, we have some stuff coming for Diablo III. For next Season. We will have more to talk about later. Honestly, it came down to… I am in the process of working on some blogs and things like that; and I just couldn’t get them done before BlizzCon. So it had to wait until after BlizzCon. But we are not done with Diablo III. We are not done with Diablo III.”
For the naysayers, co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment Allen Adham did tease Diablo IV during the BlizzCon Press Conference. He didn’t say the words, but if an image is worth a thousand words, this smirky smile of joy painted across Allen and Wyatt’s faces confirms it.
That smile came about at the exact moment Allen said the underlined text within this sentence: “For die-hard PC fans, we will say though, we still have multiple Diablo teams working on Multiple unannounced Diablo projects. So we haven’t forgotten about them. The future is bright. Stay tuned.”
In addition, Allen Adham basically revealed there is at least a Warcraft mobile game in development. At most, a Warcraft mobile game and a StarCraft or Overwatch mobile game — when he said:
“we have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles across all of our IPs.”
During BlizzCon 2018, the Diablo developers announced a new MMO-Action RPG game for mobile devices. Diablo Immortal is set 5 years after the destruction of the Worldstone, filling the gap storywise for what happened between Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III.
