Under Blizzard’s section in the report, more details regarding the future development of the Warcraft franchise were mentioned. The team at Activision Blizzard plans to add in much new content for the Warcraft franchise in 2022. One of the key mentions here will be their plan to develop and release an all-new mobile game based on Warcraft’s universe into players’ hands for the first time. This mobile game might have an MMORPG, RTS, or any other such fantasy-based setting that can correlate to the Warcraft franchise.
Activision Blizzard looks to tap into the mobile gaming industry
Bobby Kotick, who is the CEO of Activision Blizzard, had already provided hints regarding such a Warcraft-related mobile game in their other financial earnings report of 2021. Hence this announcement solidifies that the company is not shy of entering into the mobile gaming market. Their other mobile gaming titles have already seen significant success. While the Diablo Immortal mobile game received a backlash from fans of the franchise during its announcement, its latest results of public testing have received a lot of positive feedback from players and critics. Even Call of Duty: Mobile has garnered more positive reviews from both casual players and veterans of the franchise. Due to its smooth gameplay and better optimization, it has risen to become one of the best FPS titles on mobile platforms.
It is no wonder that Activision Blizzard now plans to tap into the potential of the ever-increasing mobile gaming player base. The mobile gaming market has been rising exponentially each year, especially in developing countries where access to a smartphone is much easier than getting a high-end PC. If Activision can pull off a successful release of the Warcraft-mobile game, they can capture a huge market as there are really no solid titles available in this genre.
