Blizzard Is Working On A New Mobile Warcraft Game

    Blizzard Entertainment is a leading creator and publisher of video games, with titles such as World of Warcraft®, Overwatch®, Hearthstone®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® earning critical acclaim.

    Blizzard’s years of not publishing a new game in the Warcraft franchise may be coming to an end. According to the developer and publisher’s quarterly financial report, an all-new game in the series will be released this year. Fans of the series, however, will be saddened to learn that the game is currently being created for mobile devices.

    “In 2022, Blizzard is preparing significant new content for the Warcraft franchise, including new World of Warcraft and Hearthstone experiences, as well as bringing all-new mobile Warcraft material into players’ hands for the first time,” the company added. Regrettably, the article did not disclose any other information about the mobile game, such as its genre or whether it would have a business plan.

    Today’s Activision Blizzard quarterly results report (which, oddly, was delivered as a press release rather than a traditional phone call, ostensibly because of the impending Microsoft takeover and possibly the myriad other things going on there) includes news that Blizzard is working on a new Warcraft mobile title, which will be released in 2022.

    “Blizzard is planning substantial new content for the” warcraftt franchise in 2022, including […] getting a brand new mobile warcraft content in the hands of players for the first time,” according to the press release. The press release does not go into detail about the new game or when we can expect more. For the time being, we only know that it will be warcraft and that it will be mobile.

    The announcement coincides with a revenue report that shows consumers spent over a billion dollars on… Call of Duty mobile in 2021, as well as Candy Crush’s continued dominance of app store revenue leaderboards.

    Activision Blizzard has announced that a Warcraft mobile game will be released this year. Since its announcement in 2018, Diablo Immortal — a diablo mobile game – has been under development and is set to release in 2022. Overwatch 2’s premature revelation may have taught us a lesson in the seemingly short time between announcement and notional release. It’s also likely that this mobile game isn’t as extensive as Diablo Immortal and hence doesn’t require as much time to build. Anyway, with the release of an all-new Blizzard-developed survival game and the sudden news of a Warcraft mobile game, the business is putting its best foot forward against its (potential) Microsoft overlords.
