You can now play the original Diablo game on web browsers

The gaming industry is pretty terrible at preserving its rich history. The hard and thankless work of making sure classic games are still available to future generations is done by third-parties, some of whom even risk lawsuits from companies that are not at all interested in doing that but continue to close off these games to protect their IPs decades after their day in the market. Fortunately, through odd twists in history, the code for the original Diablo has more or less become available to the public, leading to one of the oddest ports of the game: Diablo on the Web.

Blizzard will make more WarCraft, Diablo games in the face of layoffs

Blizzard will make more WarCraft, Diablo games in the face of layoffs

If Activision Blizzard manages to pull off this near-impossible challenge, it will be a miracle. Not that it will do anything to repair the company's tarnished image. After announcing a record-breaking 2018 revenue, the game developer announced it would be laying off around 800 people.

Blizzard has more mobile games in the works beyond Diablo Immortal

It's probably understating it quite a bit to merely say that the reaction to Diablo Immortal has been negative. Blizzard has received a ton of push back from fans over the idea of a Diablo mobile game, but if you count yourself among the people who are disappointed, you might want to buckle in. As it turns out, Blizzard's mobile strategy may end up being a lot more intense than just a single mobile game for one of its franchises.

If you're one of the people who were disappointed in the announcement of Diablo Immortal last week, you certainly aren't alone.
