This is brutal. What the hell were they thinking? They drag in fans of the PC originals and tell them they can have a new microtransactional filled version on their phones instead of Diablo 4.

Must be a bunch of entitled gamers.

This just goes to show how toxic the gaming community has become. Developers aren't obligated to make specifically the kind of game you expect from them.

I love the bit "Do you guys not have phones?"

In the youtube comments someone wrote

Me: I don't like anal sex.
Blizzard: Do you guys not have assholes?

and also

Gamers: We don't like eating shit.
Blizzard: Do you guys not have mouths?


It's pretty memetastic.

As I understand Diablo 4 is still a thing that will be made and this mobile game is made by a contracted chineese company.
Like bitching about Final Fantasy Tactics being made instead of Final Fantasy 11.

Except Tactics was an amazing game.

It's still in development. It might be good. Right, guys? ...Right?

Oh well, Blizzard's stocks took a hit for this, and even Domino's are ripping the shit out of them (https://www.facebook.com/DominosMY/photos/a.180244505442035/1401250033341470/?type=3&permPage=1).

Perhaps one day the industry will learn.
