In an unexpected twist of events, Blizzard announces that Diablo Immortal will launch on PC. Not only that, but it will have cross-play and cross-progression with its Android and iOS counterparts. So, even if you don’t have a phone to play the game, you can experience it with your PC.
Those that played the Diablo Immortal beta know that this ARPG MMORPG hybrid isn’t all that bad. It’s more Diablo, just in a slightly different package. Different enough to keep us occupied before we get our hands on Diablo 4.
Well, Blizzard announced that Diablo Immortal is making its way to PC in a rather long blog. It’s arriving on June 2nd, the same day the game launches on Android and iOS. Diablo Immortal will feature full cross-play and cross-progression between both platforms. Seems like the push to make the game a mobile experience ended up failing. Maybe Blizzard noticed how much their own community started making fun of them ever since the day of the game’s announcement. We’ve all seen a lot of hilarious Diablo Immortal memes. However, I just hope this doesn’t stop them.
What’s the reasoning behind Diablo Immortal’s arrival on the PC? Well, Blizzard said they thought Diablo fans would try to play the game on PC through emulators. Sounds like a bunch of absolute bullshit but hey, it’s their words, not mine.
