We do hope it's a portal to The Vault in Diablo's Treasure Realm.

Games publishing giant Blizzard Entertainment has announced Diablo Immortal, a new action role-playing game (RPG) for Android and iOS developed alongside Chinese tech company Netease.

Set during the twenty years between Diablo II and Diablo III, Diablo Immortal will tell stories about Tyrael, Deckard Cain, and other familiar franchise characters. In terms of visuals it looks on par if not better than Diablo 3. On its site, Blizzard says Diablo Immortal will let players explore Sanctuary "in a persistent, always-online adventure anywhere, anytime". Blizzard has hinted at this several times, but concluding your big opening ceremony with a Diablo mobile game seems like a misstep to us.

There are more details on the game's website as well as the Activision press release, including the six character classes players will choose from; Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer and Wizard.

The developers made it clear this was a full-fledged game and they are committed to bringing the Diablo experience to mobile devices.

Unsurprisingly, fan response to Diablo Immortal has been...just a bit harsh. Created to be a living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience, Diablo Immortal will regularly introduce new storylines, new playable character classes, new loot, and all-new challenges-which you can face side-by-side with your friends. or foolishly choose to confront on your own. As of the writing of this article, the game's cinematic launch trailer has 2k likes and 54k dislikes on YouTube. "We want to do it in a way that's true to Blizzard, putting gameplay first". You can play Diablo III shared-screen on a single Nintendo Switch™, remotely on up to four Nintendo Switch ™ consoles, or combine TV and handheld play.
