This week “Global Launch” of Diablo immortal already wasn’t that global considering several Southeast Asian countries have to wait for the release. And now the global label is shrinking even further as two European countries have dropped out of Blizzard’s mobile MMO.

The Netherlands and Belgium have reportedly locked themselves out Diablo immortal from launch in their respective countries. The studio’s official line is that this is due to “the current operating conditions in these countries,” but what really matters is “lockers.”

“Unfortunately, players in the Netherlands and Belgium cannot install Diablo immortal due to countries’ gambling concerns,” a Blizzard CS representative clarified. “The in-game loot boxes are against the law in your country. So if the gambling restrictions don’t change, the game won’t be released.” Of course, Blizzard states very strongly here that it won’t ban players in these countries from using VPNs and other tricks to gamble.
