Diablo Immortal is set for a global launch for mobile devices on June 2. The pre-registration for the game has been removed from the Netherlands and Belgium.

In April 2018, video game lootboxes were declared to be in violation of gambling legislation. Other games that had been subjected to the same restrictions have protected themselves from fines. EA announced in 2019 it would no longer sell FIFA Points in Belgium for real money. It's possible Blizzard is prioritizing their money grab.
