It's a good thing Path of Exile exists. RIP Diablo as a franchise

It's sad to me to see two of the great franchises I grew up on - Command and Conquer & Diablo - reduced to mobile shovelware so Activision and EA can milk the MTX cow of casual mobile gamers. Pathetic.

Blizzard have been concentrating on getting the game on to consoles (PS4, xbox, switch) instead of giving PC players anything to spend their money on.


I think one of the points is that during blizzcon, they usually announce something new to the game, even if its just another character or another small area.
This time they are all about the mobile game, which people who tried it, say it was boring and pointless to real fans.
People are disappointed and feel that blizzard will pretty much do a diablo 2 on 3, meaning they will let it rot for 10 years before a new game comes out.

No one is surprised after what they did to D3. Took one of the best coop games and completely destroyed it. Of course mobile is next, need to finishing pumping the name of all of its cash before it becomes another garbage name. I just given up on blizzard after D3 and really don't care about D4. If there is a D4, blizzard does not care, so why should I?

The franchise peaked at when Lord of Destruction released.
This looks like any other generic mobile cash grab.

Blizzard is dead for quite some time now, the original people who made Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo are retired, left company, etc. that's why we get this mess of WoW, Overwatch and other crazies.
Even for Starcraft remaster they said they didn't even have the source let alone would know how it worked lol So they had to recreate the game.

Personally I don't get the Diablo hype at all, Diablo 1... OK? Well mediocre. Diablo 2? Uber clicker mouse switch killer is all it was, might as well get a click script, story? What story, meh, just run and click for 99% of the game.
Warcraft 3... it was OK, unbalanced but a good game, WoW? Bleh, money grab MMO not a strategy game. All W3 did was continue Starcraft in spawning MOBAs as mods (DOTA, LOL, ...).

SC2 was nice but I still prefer SC1+BW even at low resolution graphics of the free remake.

Same as Valve, Blizzard has moved on, the good original people have moved on, don't expect very good games from these anymore, they've turned into a $$$ making machine spawning remakes and DLCs and next chapters of the same game, not making anything new, instead trying to get that MMO, massive online gameplay base $$$.

The problem is no one asked for a mobile Diablo. The problem is they hyped and rumored like crazy to get everyone coked up for a Diablo announcement to drop a phone game on a crowd of die hard Blizzard pc gamers. On top of that, Blizzard isn't even making it. They outsourced to some trash Chinese company who's just reskinning their P2W junk to look like Diablo.

As others have said, there wouldn't have been any backlash if they had provided details (or even just a teaser) from a Diablo PC project first, and then announced the stupid mobile game. If there had been more Diablo reveals at Blizzcon aside from the mobile game, people would've just ignored the mobile game instead of lashing out at it. As it is, it's an easy target for everyone's frustration about Diablo being largely ignored compared to Blizzard's other IP's for a number of years now.

Yeah. Its the way they hyped it up. If you watch the beginning of the presentation, people were expecting something big after the intro. But it was a mobile game and that pissed a ton of people off. On top of that, they made people sit in a panel for something they had no interest in.

1. If you have PC based community, dont force other platforms using "exclusive contents"
It does not matter whether people have or dont have cellphones. Especially when you invest 1000-2500 dollars into a properly working PC, you maybe build yourself, and like 100-300 dollars into a phone.

2. Mobile games have bad reputation.
Look back at Dungeon Keeper. They could make it work as a normal app for the mobiles, but... they added so much monetization that there is NO way back.

3. You can make new franchise on mobile devices
And people wont be angry for destroying existing franchise.
