Diablo Immortal: Blizzard speaks for the first time about the release period

Diablo Immortal

Blizzard comments on the release of Diablo Immortal for the first time. As the studio reveals in a current annual report, the release of the mobile Diablo is planned for the current year - Diablo Immortal should appear in 2021. Before that, there was always speculation about a possible date: Because the new edition Diablo 2 Resurrected is already in prospect for this year, the assumption was that Diablo Immortal might not appear until 2022. Even at Blizzcon 2021, Blizzard held back with release statements on hack and slay for mobile devices.

Blizzard did not announce a specific date for Diablo Immortal in the latest annual report. As soon as we get more information about this, you will find out as usual on our website. A closed alpha test for Diablo Immortal was recently reported. So far, only a handful of players have been able to try out the mobile adventure. For the current test run, among other things, the developers want the participants to examine new "long-term content".

Diablo: Immortal is on target for global release this year

As part of today’s Activision Blizzard earnings announcement, the company revealed that Diablo: Immortal is on track for a global release later in 2021.

Diablo: Immortal is the action-RPG’s first mobile installment. Blizzard announced the free-to-play game, which it is making with NetEase, back in 2018. Testing for Diablo: Immortal has started this year, with the game in its second alpha. This is testing out most of Immortal’s character classes and giving players access to PvP systems.

This is the first time Activision Blizzard has given a release window for Diablo: Immortal. Diablo II: Resurrected, a remake of the 2000 classic, is also coming out later this year. And then Diablo IV is also in development, although we don’t know when to expect it’s release other than that it won’t be this year.

After the success of Call of Duty Mobile, Activision Blizzard sees the value of bringing its biggest franchises to smartphones and tablets. It has already done so this year for Crash Bandicoot with Crash Bandicoot: On the Run. Diablo: Immortal is another part of this strategy.
