The Diablo Immortal controller support discussion has been at the forefront of a lot of the game’s betas. Being able to play with controller is high on the list of wants from the community. 

It’s not hard to see why. While touchscreen controls have come a long way in recent years, they still feel like a sub-optimal way of playing most games. As more triple-A-like experiences come to mobile, the need for controller support is ever-important. Games like Apex Legends Mobile and Valorant Mobile are great examples of games that'll benefit greatly from controller support. 

Diablo Immortal is no different. While the traditional control input for the franchise is certainly mouse and keyboard, Diablo 3 has thrived on console versions that brilliantly translated the basic controls to a gamepad. Since it seems deeply unlikely mouse and keyboard will ever be supported on mobile, controller support appears to be the way to go.

And what about PC? Diablo 2: Resurrected supports controller, but it's the only PC Diablo game that does, so it’s not a given that we will see it in the upcoming Open Beta. With all that, we dive into the answers you’re looking for regarding Diablo Immortal controller support.

The wait for Diablo 4 is taking a while, so, Diablo Immortal is a nice taste for PC players. 

It's been confirmed that the upcoming PC release for Diablo Immortal will also feature controller support. In a blog post (opens in new tab) for the PC Open Beta, Blizzard said: “ For all of the console gamers out there, we have included controller support for PC! The behaviors will mimic the mobile version—detection will be a seamless experience and many controls will be remappable to your liking as well.”

Of course, the PC version of the game will also support traditional mouse and keyboard controls. That means PC will hand you the most control over how you play the game. Throw in cross-save, and you can take the game on the move, too.
