This is according to Activision Blizzard’s press release where they wrote, “Blizzard is planning substantial new content for the Warcraft franchise in 2022, including new experiences in World of Warcraft and Hearthstone, and getting all-new mobile Warcraft content into players’ hands for the first time.”
It is unclear what kind of mobile experience we are talking about. The company does have a mobile app for World of Warcraft but apart from checking on their characters, players can’t really “play” the game in the traditional sense of the word. We’re not sure if this announcement means a new type of app or an actual game for mobile set in the Warcraft universe.
The latter would clearly be a lot more exciting, especially since mods like tower defense games were pretty popular in Warcraft 3, so who knows, maybe those are some of the games we can expect. Given Blizzard’s habit of taking their own time with their games, we probably shouldn’t expect to see this mobile title anytime soon.
