Cheng notes that this new entry in the “Diablo” universe will be a “full-fledged action RPG.”

Cheng explained the intent behind bringing Blizzard’s next installment to the iconic series to mobile.

“Our modern world is an increasingly connected one,” Cheng said. “Our mobile devices keep us closer than ever to our friends, family, and loved ones— so we knew we want to use mobile devices as the platform for a new ‘Diablo’ game, because nothing brings a family together like slaying demons!”

“But we want to do it in a way that’s true to Blizzard— putting gameplay first,” Cheng added. “We want to do it in a way that feels right for ‘Diablo.'”
