The Activision Blizzard debacle has sent the most beloved studio to the grinder as the lawsuit remains damaging. After the resignation of Blizzard’s president, J. Allen Brack, a few more developers have left the company. And that’s why the mobile game based on the studio’s popular action role-playing game, Diablo Immortal, has been hit with a release delay until the first half of 2022.
According to a post on the official website, feedback from the Diablo Immortal closed alpha testing helped the team at Blizzard understand what the community wants for the game, so they had to push the release date to next year to refine the game’s core elements, especially in PvE and PvP modes, and endgame content to be more “engaging”.
The blog post stilt:
“Following feedback from Closed Alpha test participants, our team fine-tuned the core and endgame features. For example, we’ll iterate 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 are also working on providing controller support for those who want to play our game in a different way. However, these changes and additional capabilities to enhance our gameplay experience will not be realized in the 2021 timeframe we previously communicated. So the game is now slated for release in the first half of 2022, allowing us to add substantial improvements to the entire game.“
While the controller support for Diablo Immortal is an established feature, Blizzard is still working on the challenges they faced with the touchscreen controls. “Your enthusiasm for wanting to play Diablo Immortal with a controller is coming; but we’re still working on the challenges of seamlessly adapting the touchscreen controls to a controller. Making our game more accessible is paramount, and we will share more progress in this area as we approach beta in the future,” the blog post reads.
Diablo Immortal is now launching in 2022 for mobile.
