Why Diablo Immortal and Blizzard ultimately won (+YT AUDIO/VIDEO VERSION)
Blizzard hasn’t had the best few years. While the company can list some successes, such as the decently perceived Overwatch 2 tests and the launch of the legacy version of World of Warcraft, in recent times, it’s not considered to be in its heyday.
