The much-hyped Diablo Immortal just received another trailer today during ChinaJoy 2020. It gives us a decent look at the core action, some of the classes on offer, and a bit of the multiplayer.
Visually, it's not too bad at all. It's very clearly a Diablo game, and it seems more or less in line with the presentation of Diablo III. I definitely like how fast-paced the combat is, and some of the abilities on show are undoubtedly impressive.

I'm still of the mind that this looks neat, and the fact that Blizzard hasn't just rushed it out suggests to me that this won't be a quick cash-grab. Sure, it'll be free to play, but games like Path of Exile have proved that this can work for hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers.
I also keep forgetting that you can actually pre-register your interest in Diablo Immortal over on Google Play. That said, it's still unclear as to when the game will see the light of day.
