Diablo Immortal, the free-to-play title designed for mobile devices, will launch sometime later this year, Activision Blizzard confirmed during its latest financial earnings release. It will be one of two Diablo titles coming in 2021, with a third coming at a later date.

During a recent earnings call, Activision Blizzard confirmed that Diablo Immortal is "on track for global release later this year." Though a date or window wasn't revealed, the studio said the game has finally entered the second phase of testing. A technical alpha kicked off late last year, but it was relegated to Australia only.

Despite being announced in 2018, Activision Blizzard has stayed relatively quiet about the mobile spin-off. Aside from the technical alpha that took place in December 2020, the last official news about the game was confirmation that Diablo Immortal is part of Activision Blizzard's wider strategy to push mobile experiences.

We did get a look at Diablo Immortal's various classes in August 2020, which includes the Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard.

Activision Blizzard has a few Diablo projects in the works alongside Immortal. There's Diablo 2: Resurrected, which remasters the original title for consoles and PC; and Diablo 4, the next mainline entry to the series that goes open-world. Diablo 2: Resurrected is said to launch this year, while Diablo 4 doesn't have a release date but will not be arriving in 2021.
