One title conspicuously absent from this year's opening ceremonies, and indeed from the entire BlizzCon schedule, was Diablo Immortal. Announced as the key new product at BlizzCon 2018, the mobile title attracted a broadly negative reaction from a community that had been first told to get hype but then promptly to rein it in.
With Diablo Immortal on the horizon, we're going to get a look at the big gap of 20 or so years between the end of Diablo 2 and the start of Diablo 3.
