Diablo Immortal establishes itself as the biggest launch in the history of the Diablo franchise, according to the developer Activision Blizzard. The official MMORPG on mobile whizzed past the 10 million download mark in just one week since the global launch in June 2022. Achieving 10,000,000+ downloads is a no-mean feat considering the hoopla around the monetization system related to microtransactions. Such is the magnitude of the successful release that creators have already confirmed the game’s PC version.
The announcements came via the Twitter account of Blizzard’s massively multiplayer online action RPG. See the original Tweet below.

Diablo Immortal arrived on Android and iOS platforms last week. Since then, the latest title in the Diablo series has beat records of all previous entries, including Diablo III a decade ago.
Marking the worldwide roll-out, Mike Ybarra, president of Blizzard Entertainment, said, “We’re thrilled to now be able to put the newest entry in the Diablo series in players’ hands.” Adding further, “The visceral gameplay, dark story, and depth of character customization that Diablo is known for are all here in Diablo Immortal. And with this being a AAA free-to-play Blizzard game, it was important to us to give players a full and highly engaging core game experience—including upcoming features, character classes, story, and more—completely free.”
As a massively multiplayer online action-RPG, Diablo Immortal enables players to experience the game solo or together with any of the fellow adventurers they encounter on their journeys through Sanctuary. Players can explore, conquer, and socialize in all new ways in the first MMOARPG set in the Diablo universe. Traverse the lands of Sanctuary while racing to keep the power of creation out of the hands of the Burning Hells. Players can form a Warband to test their endurance in eight-player raids, join a Clan, or simply craft, trade, and interact with other players in the busy city of Westmarch. All while amassing enough skill and power to conquer their server in the Cycle of Strife, where they will ultimately fight in brutal 1v30 battles to earn the title of Immortal.
On Android and iOS smartphones, the game is available free to download. On PC Windows, Open Beta registration is open via the Battle.net website.
