Blizzard, the company that brought us World of Warcraft and Overwatch, two games I have loved and been loyal to for years, got derailed last year due to a scandal and a lawsuit over acts of sexual harassment and abuse that destroyed the company’s reputation, as documented here:
Blizzard and Activision Need to be Split Apart, Round 2!
Just when I was beginning to think Blizzard was recovering and learning from its past mistakes, it prepares to release a new game called Diablo Immortal, a mobile game that is part of the Diablo franchise Blizzard has also been known for over the decades. The earlier Diablo games were for PCs, and the fact that Blizzard made a Diablo game for mobile devices shows how advanced cell phones and tablets have become. So Blizzard was making their games even more inclusive, right?
Well, think again! This Diablo Immortal hasn’t even been officially been released yet, only being beta tested so far and games and game critics are already slamming it! See for yourself!
Now I have played a starter edition of Diablo III and I enjoyed it, but I never bought any of the Diablo games and I certainly won’t after seeing this train wreck of this newest game.
I’m beginning to wonder if I should apologize to EA for blasting it as I have. No, but I do think that Blizzard is giving EA some stiff competition for the title of WORST VIDEO GAME COMPANY EVER!!!!
Can Activison/Blizzard just STFU?!
