Thanks for letting us know.

We hope everyone at Blizzard understands the disappointment.

A mobile release isn't our biggest concern it's the future development of the Diablo franchise. The once genre defining action role playing game.
Cool!

Good to know. Let's see if it really matters in the end.

Pretty much what I was expecting. Looking forward to further communication.

Edit: Spent the night thinking about what I would like to see for a new Diablo game.

The main thing that kept popping into my head was the overall look of Diablo I & II compared to III. I would love to see the next game be more true to the lore and story of the Diablo franchise. A rated teen version of that just doesn't fit. It needs to be more dark and gritty. When I think about angels and demons and heaven and hell, I don't think about bright purple teddy bears and unicorns.

I would also like to see more emphasis on community and multiplayer (diablo II had 8 player games), the RMAH and "loot 2.0" really took that away.

And don't forget about PVP, please!
Thanks for answering

You can hear us all you want, but I don't think hearing us is going to do much right now. Hopefully you have some actual news or things to say sometime soon.

I think mainly folks want to know if there will be new content coming to D3 or if something concerning Classic Games, like a Remaster is in the works?

Those two things whether coming soon or in development would do a lot tamper the disappointment I and most everyone feels.

Thanks for coming, Nevalistis.

we hear you


You do understand that it is hard for us to really believe that when you haven't listened for years, right?

At this point actions speak louder than words. You and the entire Diablo team need to re-earn the communities trust.

I am not sure what more we need to say. The feedback has been clear. We are primarily interested in what's next with Diablo on PC/consoles.
Cheers for the info. I really hope that u guys can find soul again in what you are doing.

Upping this, HARD. You all have to deliver on the next big PC IP, or just don't at all.

You guys need to realize you're on the path towards alienating your core fanbase.

They lost it when they decided announcing a phone app to a PC crowd was a good idea. They need to reconnect with the fans and remember why they get to make games in the first place.
