Blizzard Entertainment has finally revealed the release date for Diablo Immortal. Fans can get their hands on the anticipated game on 2 June 2022. The company also announced that – in case you don’t have a mobile phone – Diablo Immortal will also be available on PC on the same date, complete with full cross-play support.
Blizzard recently posted a reveal trailer confirming 2 June 2022 as the game’s release date, both on mobile (iOS and Android) and PC, though the latter will be in open beta for the time being. Players can choose to pre-register as well on the official Diablo Immortal website, which will give you a chance to participate in upcoming beta tests, earn in-game rewards and receive news and updates.
Diablo Immortal was first unveiled as a free-to-play mobile title in late 2018, though was met with backlash from fans who criticised Blizzard’s move to mobile. The company would later reveal Diablo IV, assuring fans that traditional games in the series were not forgotten about.
Since its early beta stages, impressions have changed to mostly positive. Diablo Immortal also releasing on PC is a big win as it means more people (specifically, some of the franchise’s more dedicated player base) will be able to enjoy the game, complete with cross-play support across mobile and PC platforms.
Incorporating several familiar elements taken from the mainline Diablo franchise, Diablo Immortal streamlines its gameplay in order to make it a better fit for mobile. However, we’re hoping that they don’t cut corners with the PC version, though Blizzard’s target is the mobile market and they’ve made it quite clear in all prior marketing.
Diablo Immortal releases on 2 June 2022 for iOS, Android and PC Open Beta. Players can pre-register on the game’s official website right now.
