The announcement was roundly booed, with angry fans taking to the mics to beg Blizzard to reconsider and even ask "Is this an out-of-season April Fool's joke?" Of course, after the announcement, the massive torrent of Diablo hate quickly and spectacularly spilled over onto the internet. Angry fans went into full pitchforks-and-torches mode on Twitter, Facebook, and of course, the Diablo subreddit, calling for a boycott of the company or even getting the game canceled. They decried a mobile version of Diablo a "slap in the face" to dedicated old-school fans. Because we guess it's hard to feel appreciated as a "git gud" hardcore gamer if your game of choice will soon be most popular among tweens being driven to soccer practice.
