Blizzard now announces that they will not release Diablo Immortal this year but instead aim for 2022, wondering why.
Diablo Immortal has been a popular game and maybe not always for the positive, but instead a Diablo that we would rather not have seen.
The plan was first to launch Diablo Immortal at the end of this year, but now Activision Blizzard confirms that the decision has been made to move the launch to the beginning of 2022.
Blizzard is in real windy weather and if it is due to that or simply that you want to polish the game a little more, we will probably never get a real answer. So for those who long for Diablo for mobile, have to wait a little longer, as it looks now.
Following feedback provided by test participants of the Closed Alpha, our team has been tuning core and endgame features. For example, we’re iterating on PvP content like the Cycle of Strife to make it more accessible, alongside late-game PvE content like the Helliquary to make it more engaging. We’re also working to provide controller support for those who want to play our game in a different way. However, these changes and additional opportunities to improve our gameplay experience will not be realized in the 2021 timeframe we had previously communicated. So, the game is now planned for release in the first half of 2022, which will allow us to add substantial improvements to the whole game.
