Blizzard says "Diablo Immortal" is coming to both iOS and Android devices "soon." See the game for yourself right here:
"Do you guys not have phones?"
Though several different people asked questions about the smartphone focus of "Diablo Immortal" during the Q&A, it was one particular straw that seemingly broke the camel's back.
The camel in this situation is Wyatt Cheng, and it was a seemingly banal question about "Diablo Immortal" that got to him. Will the game ever come to other platforms, or is it smartphone exclusive? It was this that resulted in Cheng asking a question of attendees: "Do you guys not have phones?"
That didn't go over so well. He rhetorically asked attendees as much in a moment of mild frustration, and he accidentally became a meme.
The question was asked in jest, but it served as a perfect embodiment of the contention between Blizzard's announcement and its community: In Blizzard's eyes, "Diablo Immortal" is one of several new games in the "Diablo" franchise; In the community's eyes, "Diablo Immortal" is another move toward turning "Diablo" into a series focused on profit over gameplay.
More specifically, it's seen by the community — many of which have been playing the "Diablo" franchise for decades — as a stepawayfrom the franchise's past as a PC game, and a step toward the profit-focused world of mobile game design. Though Blizzard hasn't said as much explicitly, the "Diablo" mobile game appears to be free-to-play: a model of game pricing that's notorious for optimizing profit over gameplay.
Worse still, Blizzard seemingly doesn't understand why fans are upset.
"Do you guys not have phones?" posits that people are only upset because "Diablo" is getting a new game on mobile.Of course"Diablo" fans have smartphones. That's not really the point.
