    PC Gamer has some info about the prospects of Diablo Immortal, that mobile game that pissed everyone off, coming to the PC platform. Apparently the target date is June 2nd. Here's a snippet:

    The action RPG will be making its way to PC in open beta on June 2, the same day as its full release on iOS and Android. There'll also be cross-play and cross-progression between both platforms, so you can play on the go and then pick up where you left off on your desktop. It's a surprise move considering Blizzard had focused so heavily on perfecting the game for mobile. The game's initial announcement irked an awful lot of Diablo fans, which came at a time when many were expecting news on the much-anticipated Diablo 4. The reveal faced hefty backlash with fans accusing Blizzard of forgetting its roots, calling it a "slap in the face" and claiming that Blizzard had "spit in the faces" of the community.

    I still have yet to get Diablo III or Diablo II: Resurrected. I played the Hell out of the first and second one when they came out, and I still enjoy a bit of Torchlight 2, but the offerings from Blizzard haven't really appealed to me much.

    Thanks, Vortex!

    I've seen a reddit thread listing how many fucking types of in-game currency (bought by $$$) are in the game.

    Jesus.

    This is another reason why I could care less about this thing. There's already a few moderate to pretty good Diablo like games that are "free" with a cash shop. I'd be willing to bet those are a heck of a lot less exploitive than what Blizzard will do with this.

    Why would they think this is worth the investment to port?

    So crossplay just ensures the game will be as crap as it can possibly be on pc too. That camera distance is extraordinarily close. Absolute shit. Microsoft should have waited to purchase Activsion, just to be able to let price go down even more.

    Maybe they thought announcing this mobile game would counter this news a bit :|

    For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, Activision Blizzard’s net revenues presented in accordance with GAAP were $1.77 billion, as compared with $2.28 billion for the first quarter of 2021.

    The announce trailer for pc was filmed in Detroit I do believe. Its always Paladin/Crusader types. For the feint of heart, I do apologize about the thumbnail.
