Pokemon Go is probably one of the most successful games ever released. The phenomenon is not surprising if we look at an important detail – it is hard to resist all those sweet creatures waiting to be discovered. After seeing their success, other developers are trying to create similar mobile games, but it remains to be seen whether they will be able to step on the Pokemon Go steps.
Blizzard seems to be the first development company to follow Niantic Labs. Even if the announcement of the launch of Diablo Immortal on mobile devices was not well received, the team does not plan to abandon its idea.
According to Kotaku, the company is currently developing a mobile version of Warcraft and the new initiative is inspired by Pokemonn Go. The department involved in this work is behind the Immortal and promises to create a game to revolutionize the market.
Blizzard does not give up on his first idea – Diablo Immortal 4
One of the reasons Blizzard has begun working on Pokemon Go is that their lead designer Cory Stockton is a big fan of franchise. Also, stopping can result in significant revenue that can be used for other projects. Unfortunately, we do not know anything about the new game, and because it's work in progress, the team is not willing to share any ideas.
Even if he started working on a new project, Blizzard will not give up on the 4father part of Diablo. It looks like the game gets a code name – "Fenris" and will have much darker elements than 3father episode of the series. There is still a lot of work, so there is no chance of seeing the game until 2020.
