"So the feel, the UI and everything around this game is built with the philosophy to make the best Diablo experience we can on a mobile platform".

"While we won't be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show".

With the reaction to the Diablo: Immortal reveal being so negative despite its intriguing lore angle, it's understandable that many who seem to be violently opposed to the idea would want some form of explanation behind the reveal sequence.

The release of BlizzCon 2018's panel schedule added more speculation, as Diablo was given the first panel slot on the main stage, having fans think that would lead to a big announcement. Those identifying as Blizzard's core player base took to YouTube, Reddit, et al to express their dissatisfaction, and the hyperbole machine went into overdrive. Blizzard said that this new MMORPG will allow you to be in one of the very iconic six classes. "Diablo Immortal is one of those projects we're very excited about, but there are others". At the show itself someone posed the question if the entire game was a joke at the Diablo Immortal Q&A.

We'll certainly be seeing more from the upcoming mobile exclusive in the coming months and I for one am looking forward to punishing evil on the toilet.

"There are actually two distinct [Diablo] teams", Adham told Kotaku.

Instead, Blizzard attempted to temper fan expectations ahead of BlizzCon, writing that, "We now have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can't wait to tell you all about them...when the time is right. So hopefully we'll get there".
