It looks like it uses mostly Diablo3 art that has been reshuffled and dropped in overall resolution.

D3's art was pretty much low fidelity to begin with, so it's not surprising that the mobile version looks so similar if it's not even just a straight port

Not to surprising mobile seems a decent place for this sort of game and there are a fair number of similar games on mobile now and the hardware has come along good enough to do justice to it.

This is how Blizzard wanted to dismount their opening ceremony?

Yeah, this will make a good chunk of cash. Nostalgia + gigantic user-base = profits. There are a lot of people that played D/D2 in their youth and gave up gaming long ago, but have a good phone and a desire for something to do for short blocks of time.

Not even a Reskin of D3. They reskinned another game it seems. Note the control scheme and UI. lol...

So awkward. God, how did they think this would NOT garner this kind of reaction? This is the first flop announcement I've ever seen from Blizzard. It's only made worse because somehow the presenter still looks so genuinely excited.

Man I feel bad for that dude, the crowd hated this announcement from what I've seen on reddit. This clip in particular was gold though (I think it's in the one above but narrowing it down)

This is proof the Blizzard as we know it is GONE. A fucking phone game? Yeah, Activision just wants money and only money - they want a slice of the mobile market.

Please god, let the talent at Blizzard quit, pick up the other talent at Blizzard that already quit and split off over the last 10 years, and create Blizzard 2.

This is a fucking tragedy.

LOL

That suggests there is any talent left there outside of the OW team. Are any of their main franchises in a better place today than they were 10 years ago?

Do these games really make that much money?
I just can't imagine a game like this can make a lot more money than say a clash royale style game with the warcraft IP.
