A Warcraft game is coming to iOS and Android this year, Blizzard announces

The Warcraft franchise is finally coming to mobile after nearly 28 years. Activision-Blizzard has announced that Warcraft will be coming to mobile for the first time this year. The studio did not give more details on this next game.

Warcraft is one of Blizzard Entertainment’s biggest franchises. It started in 1994 with the release of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, a real time strategy game on PC. In addition to the various strategy games, Blizzard then expanded the world of warcraft to other genres and in particular to the MMORPG with the very famous World of Warcraft. Its latest Shadowlands expansion has also been available since the end of 2020.

On the occasion of the announcement of its financial results, Activision-Blizzard, which is being bought by Microsoft for 68.7 billion dollars, announced the arrival of the Warcraft franchise on mobile. Activision has confirmed that Blizzard developers are planning “substantial new content for the Warcraft franchise in 2022”. A new game in the Warcraft universe will therefore land on mobile this year.

The new Warcraft game on mobile is not related to World of Warcraft or Hearthstone

The studio will deliver “all-new mobile Warcraft content into the hands of players for the first time.” Activision-Blizzard insisted that the next game is separate from World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. Both of these games will also feature “new experiences” this year, according to the studio. Hearthstone is an online collectible card game set in the Warcraft universe which is also available on Android and iOS.

It’s not the first time thata Blizzard franchise is coming to mobile. Players are also waiting for the release of Diablo Immortal which was first announced in 2018. The game is currently in alpha, but it is expected to release this year. Diablo Immortal will be faithful to the atmosphere and gameplay of the franchise with a single player mode and a multiplayer mode.

Finally, the community obviously hopes that the game Warcraft on mobile will be of higher quality than Warcraft 3: Reforged remaster released in 2020. This one was so catastrophic that Blizzard had to offer players unconditional refunds. Either way, we should soon hear more about the new Warcraft game as it’s releasing this year. Blizzard is also working on a brand new survival game in a new universe which was announced only a few days ago.
