Diablo 2: Resurrected and Diablo Immortal Set to Release This Year
05/05/2021 alle 11:00
Both Diablo II: Resurrected and Diablo Immortal are set to release sometime this year, according to slides and comments from
Activision Blizzard's first-quarter financial results conference call
. While no official dates have been given just yet, both games have received extremely positive feedback, with Resurrected celebrating the highest ever online viewership for a Blizzard game test during
last month's alpha testing
It's unclear exactly what metric the claim of highest ever online viewership is based on, though it is undeniable that Diablo 2: Resurrected was extremely well received during its
four day technical alpha
. According to TwitchTracker, Diablo II reached
nearly 403 thousand viewers in April
, while Shadowlands peaked at only
244 thousand at the start of its beta period in July
. While this certainly isn't the only viewership metric, with some WoW Classic test videos reaching hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube, it goes to show how much attention the Diablo II remaster gathered in just a few short days.

Diablo Immortal has also been
getting high praise
for its graphics and systems design, as well as a lack of predatory pay-to-win microtransactions within the free game, an all too common concern with mobile gaming. It begin the
second phase of alpha testing
two weeks ago, enabling PvP and end-game systems, although it has been restricted to Android users in Australia, so it's likely we'll see another larger open beta test at some point before release. An offhand comment during the Q&A portion of the conference call mentioned another round of testing in May, as well as the games releasing in the second half of this year, although no formal announcements for either have been made.
