Originally announced in 2018, fans of the Diablo franchise will be pleased to learn that Diablo Immortal is now available for pre-order from the App Store. Keep in mind that there is still no specific release date for the game yet, but the fact that it’s available for pre-order suggests that it could be coming soon.
For those unfamiliar, Diablo Immortal was originally announced at BlizzCon back in 2018. It was met with massive backlash as many gamers had anticipated that Blizzard would announce Diablo 4 (which they did at a later BlizzCon), but despite the initial backlash, early impressions and reviews of the alpha turned out to be pretty positive.
There’s an untold story between Diablo II and Diablo III…and it’s coming to iOS & iPadOS 👹📱
Be the first to know it when it drops: pre-order @DiabloImmortal today.

The game is designed for mobile platforms like iOS and Android and is being developed by both Blizzard and NetEase. The game itself is expected to be free-to-play, but there will be microtransactions built into it, which hopefully won’t interfere with the overall experience too much.
The game will feature familiar classes and characters like the Barbarian, Necromancer, Demon Hunter, and more, and there will also be support for controllers as well as brand new locations, so it won’t just be a port of Diablo onto mobile phones. If you’re a fan of the series, then this could be something to look forward to.
