After the departure of its director

After the departure of its director who was D2R Items in place prior to 2021, following various lawsuits and investigations alleging a "frat boy" culture of work at Activision Blizzard, Diablo IV is scheduled to launch in 2023. It will also support cross-play and cross-progression between PC as well as consoles. Blizzard recently released new information regarding Diablo IV's five and final launch class, called the Necromancer.
 
We spoke to Diablo 4 Director Joe Shely and general manager of the Diablo franchise Rod Fergusson about the current situation of Diablo as well as what their hopes will be for Diablo 4. And the way in which the game was designed to help them achieve them.
 
This is a major moment for Diablo. There's the launch of Immortal and you've also shown some aspects of Diablo 4. Rod as the director over the Diablo franchise can you give us an update on the temperature of the franchise? Where are you at and where do you believe it should be to be?
 
Rod Fergusson: I think it's never been a more exciting time to be an Diablo player and Diablo player. We have Diablo still out there--it's been in existence for ten years and even in its most recent season, Season 26. There are over 150 million hours played.
 
In actuality, we've have surpassed 65 million players who played Diablo. As of the month September we saw Diablo 2: Resurrected come back, and we had more than five million players that came back to play D2:R, a PC game from the 21st century that has now been remastered and available on consoles too.
 
Immortal is just released, which is our biggest free-to-play mobile game. Immortal will be able to reach number of players, reaching those 3 billion gamers that cheap diablo 2 resurrected items may only play mobile. Also, having the free-to-play mobile application available where they are.
