Chapter Blizzard Mike Ybarra spoke out in support of controversial microtransactions in Diablo Immortal, noting that thanks to them the game has become more accessible.
According to him, when planning the introduction of microtransactions, the developers thought about how to properly submit a free Diablo hundreds of millions of people – a project in which literally 99.5% of all possibilities are available to players.
Ybarra also pointed out that microtransactions mostly only come into play late in the game.
“Our philosophy has always been to deliver great gameplay and make sure that hundreds of millions of people can play the entire campaign at no cost. From that perspective, I’m very happy with Immortal as a game that can introduce people to Diablo.”
According to Blizzard, the majority of players do not spend money in Diablo Immortal, but the company did not provide statistics. In mid-June, news appeared that the project had brought its creators more than $24 million. Diablo Immortal is available on Android, iOS and PC, but users from Russia and Belarus can no longer access the game on PC
