Diablo Immortal vows two-week release cadence starting with Battle Pass Season 3


Blizzard’s controversial cross-platform MMO is set to deliver more content on a regular basis to its playerbase: Diablo Immortal’s team announced that it will be pumping out content on a bi-weekly basis going forward.

“Our current plan is to release new content for Diablo Immortal every two weeks—this will come in the form of either a mini or major update,” the studio said. It went on to explain that the mini updates will include “Battle Pass seasons, in-game events, and feature updates” while major updates are all about brand-new features, more story, and in-game events.

The first mini update will land tomorrow, August 4th, with the start of the 40-rank Battle Pass Season Three, a Wrathborne Invasion daily event, a Hungering Moon event, a vote-to-kick system, and improvements to warbands.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees strike and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
