Blizzard wants to bring more franchises to mobile

Speaking at a press conference at BlizzCon 2018 about Blizzard's future approach to mobile gaming, Adham claimed that over the past couple of years many people have switched from playing mainly on PC and consoles to spending a large of time on mobile games. That is the reason many of the company’s best developers are now working on various new mobile titles for all of its franchises. Some of these new games will be made in partnership with external parties, as is the case with Diablo Immortal. On the other hand, many are being developed within the company only. Adham promised that more information regarding this topic will come in the future. He also added that Blizzard is currently having more products in development than it has ever had in its history. He thinks the company’s future is “very bright”.

The four major franchises of Blizzard are Diablo, StarCraft, Warcraft, and Overwatch. Besides those, the company has also seen certain success with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. This is a free-to-play card game that is based on the characters of the Warcraft series. It was originally on PC, and later came to mobile.

Diablo Immortal takes place between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III. It focuses on certain characters of the series and their adventures during that period. The game received massive negative feedbacks from Diablo fans right after its announcement since many were expecting new information about the development of Diablo IV. However, many critics said that they were “surprisingly impressed with what's been done” after actually trying the game.
