"They love what they love and want what they want". The expansion was originally announced previous year, as Blizzard is looking to bring World of Warcraft back to its roots with "Classic". As it stands Blizzard has not officially confirmed the existence of a full Diablo sequel for PC now in development.

A major content update for "World of Warcraft", Tides of Vengeance, is due December 11, while retro remake "World of Warcraft Classic" was set for mid-2019.

"Diablo 3" embraced a portable format through a November 2 release for Nintendo Switch and "Diablo Immortal" will continue down the same path.

On to Overwatch news and there is a new hero on the cards. Ashe is the leader of the "Deadlock" gang and she's extremely risky. In other words, to kick Blizzard whilst it's down.

These attempts to achieve better optics did not go unnoticed, as some fans began to spam the trailer with variants of a singular comment, "Hey, Blizzard".

What would BlizzCon be without some Hearthstone news. Blizzard is working with NetEase on the development of the game, and NetEase is known for free-to-play games.

This new chapter of the blockbuster Diablo saga takes place between the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and the beginning of Diablo III.

The announcement comes shortly after the debut of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4", which was released in October and posted initial sales figures that appeared to fall short of some analyst expectations, while others were more bullish on strong engagement trends.

But, when Diablo Immortal was announced as a mobile-only release, the reaction was catastrophic to say the least across YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, etc. In response to the worries that Immortal was simply a reskin of other NetEase games, Adham stated that this is a game "purpose-built from the ground up", and all the art and assets were created exclusively for Diablo Immortal.
