Following up on October 6, 2020 news that Blizzard Entertainment had filed to trademark Diablo Immortal in several countries in October 1, the United Kingdom is now the second country to approve and register the Diablo Immortal trademark.
After BlizzConline ended, Wyatt Cheng hopped into Reddit to answer a few questions and to address the “No Release Date” feedback circulating around the community.
The Diablo Immortal Press Q&A was a privately held ZOOM meeting hosted by Cassandra Reynoso (Blizzard Global PR/moderator), Kristopher Zierhut (technical game designer) and Caleb Arseneaux (lead game producer).
There were 11 press/fansite outlet representative invitees in the Q&A held on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at 2pm EST.
The BlizzConline 2021 schedule is now available and from the Blizzard Channel we can see that Diablo is intended to be the main dish of the event.
For Friday, the Blizzard Channel focuses mainly on one World of Warcraft panel, one Overwatch 2 panel and two Diablo panels.
Recently, during the Diablo Immortal AMA held over at Reddit, a developer shutdown the thought that we might see Diablo Immortal eSports.
sVr: Will PvP have a reward system? (RedDragonFlayer)
Caleb Arseneaux (Lead Producer): We have more plans for PVP that we can’t talk about just yet. But I hope you guys have been able to check out the Bilefen Zone Trial. One thing I can say now is that none of our PVP plans are going to move the game towards an eSport. What we want is a fun place that players of all types can gather and have a good time killing each other.
This page gathers all the known Diablo Immortal patch history since the internal playtest began.
Diablo Immortal features an activity known as Events. Each zone has one unique Event that appears onscreen in the quest tracker (below your character portrait) as an Event Objective.
In the Dark Wood zone, the Event is titled Purify the Corruption. You must kill monsters in Dark Wood until the progress bar reaches 100%. Click the title of the video to launch full screen.
Diablo Immortal Technical Alpha features an activity known as Events. Each zone has one unique Event that appears onscreen in the quest tracker (below your character portrait) as an Event Objective.
In the Library of Zoltun Kulle zone, the Event is titled Kulle’s Secret Chamber. Think of it as a scavenger hunt that ends with access to a Treasure Chest room.

Corey, who often sends news tips my way posted a message in the official Diablo III forums to get the community to talk about potential BlizzConline panels and topics to be revealed.
Avalon: “Did Blizzard ever say if they were going to post a schedule prior to the event?“
Community Manager Hooley chimed in to say:
Hooley: Hey Avalon, this is a great question. Presently, we don’t have anything to share. However, over the next couple weeks the BlizzCon Website will be updated with a schedule guide of the virtual event. So, very soon you’ll be informed about what times you need to know for tuning in to get your Diablo fix.
When the time comes, I’ll share that schedule here on the community forums.
The Diablo Immortal technical alpha officially ended in January 5 at 3pm PST (Android) and 5:40pm PST (iOS).
However, there was a sneak update in the Google Play a bit over 2MB in January 7. Check below for the datamined images.
