When it comes to mobile, Blizzard doesn’t really have much on that front. They have the authenticator app and they also have a companion app for World of Warcraft to help manage their characters in the game as well as certain in-game features. There is also Hearthstone, although we guess it isn’t quite the same as a mobile-only title.

However it seems that Blizzard could be exploring the idea of creating more mobile gaming titles, thanks to a recently discovered job listing. According to the job listing, it calls for a software engineer that will help further Blizzard’s mobile gaming efforts. The description reads, “Blizzard Entertainment is seeking a talented and enthusiastic software engineer to contribute to Blizzard’s mobile gaming efforts. In this role, you will create tools that will empower our talented designers and artists. The ideal candidate will be self-directed, and have proficiency with developing powerful tools and content creation pipelines.”

We’re not sure what exactly will come from this, but who knows, maybe Blizzard could surprise gamers with a mobile-only gaming title at BlizzCon later this year. Alternatively it could be that maybe Blizzard is looking to develop more companion apps for their games, such as Overwatch which is one of Blizzard’s hottest titles at the moment, but either way it’s something we’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves.
