    the game was designed from the ground up as a mobile experience

    mobile games are designed to farm money from you from the outset, they are lesser experiences in every way to a title built on a proper platform, it is pay to win

    mobile games are designed for two groups of people

    first group: his name is gerald, gerald doesn't play video games, gerald chain smokes 2 packs of dusty menthols per day and rips a vape pen while inside the building of his retail job, gerald pulls out his phone on his smoke break and drops a dollar or two on his MoBiLe ExPeRiEnCe while he sucks down his cigarette, when gerald gets home he walks passed his wife who is also playing on her phone and sits down on the toilet, and guess what, he pulls out his phone and drops another few dollars on whatever stupid ass "game" he's playing at the time, multiply this daily routine (and trust me, gerald is a creature of habit) by 31 and before you know it this fuck has spent 100 dollars a month on clash of diablo or whatever (he doesn't know the name of the "game")

    second group: a chinese worker with an 8 hour train commute to work

    you should also not be concerned with this game, your wife's boyfriend isn't going to allow you to spend enough money in this shit game to be competitive with your my little pony profile picture and mmo champion premium

    imagine being so disconnected from the real world you have a fucking mmo champion premium account

    Yup, Diablo Immortal. Already played D2 20 years ago.

    And Diablo 2R is still going to be far better than Immortal in every single way

    First of all, I'm happily single and have no interest in getting married, so I get to spend my money on whatever I want. Secondly, I don't give a shit about being competitive, I'll really only play this game for fun if it's fun, and never drop a dollar on it. And thirdly, why the fuck shouldn't I support a website I use frequently, and who are you to judge me for it? Ah yes, the person who judges me based on a sarcastic and snarky avatar that I think looks funny. If you watch it for a little bit, you'll see it roll its eyes at you.

    I would be really surprised if it would not just run on a built-in an optimized emulator. Which is of course still better than not having on PC.

    Oh, absolutely. It makes loads of sense for Blizzard to be the ones to push this, since they have access to the source code and can likely make a better emulator than any fan-attempts. This means that the game will be viewed more positively by the PC crowd, since it should be less buggy and more functional. Should being the key-word, here. It had to actually run well and feel fun, ultimately, but that's every game at the end of the day.

    Did I miss it or has there not been any marketing for this? Gameplay, trailers, etc? Do we know any of the lore/story. When does this take place in the Diablo timeline?

    o7 Thank you.

    On topic though, I agree with your previous point that it's mostly gonna be monetized like crazy. I'm definitely not a fan of that. My only hope is that a casual experience is still fun and enjoyable, and they don't have a billion fucking pop-ups asking you to buy shit like Raid Shadow Legends. If it's a good, satisfying hack-and-slash experience in a dark and gritty world with characters we know and love, then I'll at least try it. But if it's completely laden with things to slow you down artificially and gate your play behind paywalls, then I'll probably drop it.

    It's apparently between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, and you'll be questing with Deckard Cain. Not sure about the rest.

    that's a pretty biased view - i play some mobile games namely SWGOH and I've spent way less than on it than I have for WoW. if someone enjoys the game let'em enjoy it. There are plenty of bad games on all platforms

    Well you are just 100% wrong, D2R is fun but there are too many progression walls you hit as you go. Immortal is actually well crafted and the story is actually good.

    Who asked for the original Diablo? No one. If devs catered to the desires of all gamers this industry would have folded decades ago. I know you are being facetious, but that's not really how this works most of the time.

    Imagine Genshin Impact developed for PC from the start, oh man.
