Diablo Immortal Is Delayed Again In Malaysia And Neighbouring Regions
Demon-slaying has been delayed by another week.
Diablo Immortal has been available in most parts of the world for some time, but not in Asia Pacific countries like Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macao, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Diablo Immortal was slated for release in Asia Pacific regions on June 22, however, it has now been moved back to July 8 Asia Pacific time.
The developers said the delay was necessary to fine-tune the game for a smooth release so players can start their demon-slaying fun as soon as the game hits their respective app stores.
The developers are currently working on the build package optimisation, which means the game will download properly with a streamlined asset download sequence.
The Android version of the game will receive a tune-up as well. Activision Blizzard took their time to study the Asia Pacific region install base and used the findings to perform additional compatibility tests to optimise performance on Android devices.
PC players are not forgotten as the platform will receive fixes to potion and skills lockout issues, Auto-Navigation, Demon Hunter primary attack, Xbox controller input delay, and more. Network optimisations are also being looked into during this delay.
To make up for the delay, players will receive a special package, including one piece of Legendary Gear, 100 Scrap Materials, and ten Enchanted Dust as soon as they create their characters when the game releases.
Diablo Immortal will release in the Asia Pacific region on iOS, Android and PC on July 8.
