Diablo Immortal was Activion Blizzard biggest new announcement at Blizzcon this year, basically a knock off version of Diablo 3 on mobile, as you can imagine this hasn't gone down well with Diablo fans especially after years of hearing nothing about Diablo 4 or potential Diablo 1 & 2 remasters, understandably many people took to the internet to vent their disappointment which sent some so called "gaming journalists" rushing to the defense of Blizzard with articles calling Diablo fans "entitled and toxic"
The Diablo Immortal cinematic trailer and gameplay trailer also couldn't escape the backlash receiving some of the worst like to dislike ratios you'll find on YouTube with many top comments being deleted in an attempt at damage control by Blizzard.
What are your thoughts on this PR disaster and Diablo Immortal mess Blizzard find themselves in? do you think It's a response they should have expected considering the circumstances or should we all be embracing the future of Diablo on mobile? let me know in the comments below.

---Diablo Immortal's Website Description---
Diablo® Immortal™ is a mobile Massively Multiplayer Online Action RPG (MMOARPG) developed by Blizzard Entertainment in partnership with NetEase, coming exclusively to Android, iPhone and iPad.
The story of Diablo Immortal is set between the events of Diablo® II: Lord of Destruction® and Diablo® III®.
The Worldstone lies shattered, yet great power remains within its corrupted fragments. Power that Diablo’s minions hope to harness to bring about the return of the Lord of Terror.
The Archangel Tyrael is presumed dead, and mankind is left to deal with the aftermath of his actions. Fragments of the corrupted Worldstone taint the land, bringing forth ancient evils who are looking to harvest the stone’s power and use it to control humanity.
Experience the world of Sanctuary in a persistent, always-online adventure anywhere, anytime.
Join a worldwide community as you battle side by side to vanquish ancient evils, explore perilous dungeons, and of course, get legendary loot.
Unique Zones & Dungeons
From the peaceful town of Wortham, to the jungle island of Bilefen and the ancient Library of Zoltun Kulle, each zone in Diablo Immortal has new challenges to master and familiar faces to see.
Will you choose to help Valla and her teacher in the Shassar Sea, or delve the tomb of Fahir, an ancient disciple of Akarat? Or storm the Countess’ Forgotten Tower and stop her dark reign once more? The possibilities are many. The choices are yours.
Massively Multiplayer Action in Your Pocket
Meet other demon-slayers as you wander Sanctuary, and join them to take on deep, treacherous dungeons. Visit vast social hubs like Westmarch and conduct business with local merchants before setting off on your next adventure.
Drop in or out of groups easily and engage in dynamic events all over the world, teaming up with other heroes as you take down Skarn’s minions—and reap powerful rewards.
Explore the sprawling streets of Westmarch in a time before Malthael’s corruption. The city is always bustling with activity as visitors from all over the world come to marvel at its sights, enjoy its landmarks, and more.
Westmarch is where you can meet all your adventuring needs. You’ll have access to your stash and vendors, but more importantly it’s the place to meet fellow travelers, relax and take a breather.

Diablo Immortal is being designed from the ground-up to give you an authentic Diablo experience on touch-screen devices. Intuitive actions, gestures and touch controls put you in full command of your hero. Slay endless hordes of demons as effortlessly as you would with a controller or keyboard and mouse.
