News | Diablo Immortal will not appear in the Netherlands and Belgium

Diablo Immortal will not be released in the Netherlands and Belgium. This is because of 'the current operating conditions for games in those countries'.

A communication manager from Activision-Blizzard Benelux has informed Tweakers about this. The game will not be available on smartphone app stores or on Battle.net for PC.

“This is related to the current operating conditions for games in those countries,” Blizzard’s communications manager told Tweakers. This seems to mean the legislation regarding loot boxes, an important part of Diablo Immortal.

In the Netherlands, the legislation regarding loot boxes seems to be relaxed. Earlier this year, the Dutch Gaming Authority lost a lawsuit against Electronic Arts about loot boxes in Fifa. In Belgium, the rules are still strict.

In the rest of the world, Diablo Immortal will be released on June 2 on iOS, Android and PC. The PC version is an open beta. The game was made in collaboration with the Chinese internet company NetEase and is intended to bring the well-known Diablo gameplay with new storylines and characters to phones and tablets.
