During the Xbox show, it was clear that Diablo IV will (if not delayed, that is) be released during the first half of 2023. Exciting, and a little scary considering the criticism that Diablo Immortal is currently receiving. Above all, it is "pay to win" criticism that abounds.
Now Blizzard more or less seems to want to say that Diablo IV is not based on the same principles as Immortal. Rod Fergusson, responsible for Diablo, tweets : "To clarify, Diablo IV is a full-price game built for PC, Playstation and Xbox audiences. The game will be built around "voluntary cosmetic gadgets and story-driven expansions", which sounds like something other than Immortal .
After Warcraft III: Reforged and Diablo Immortal, for example, confidence in Blizzard is not at its peak. It remains to be seen if Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV can restore it in any way.
