EVERY Blizzard Title Is Apparently Getting A Mobile Game

Mobile games are an acceptable way to pass time on your daily commute, or keep you entertained when you’re queuing for groceries, but they’ve yet be accepted as a fully-fledged gaming experience.

When Blizzard announced earlier this year that its rumoured “new Diablo game” was actually a mobile title, fans were pretty p*ssed, with lots of people now choosing to dismiss the company for ignoring what the people wanted.

Unexpectedly, it seems Blizzard is planning for ALL of its most-famous IPs to get the mobile treatment, and although exciting, the announcement has failed to impress. Again.

At Blizzcon earlier this year, Blizzard executive producer Allen Adham stated: “We have many of our best developers now working on new mobile titles across all of our IPs.” [via GameSpot].

The fan reaction, however, is less than thrilled…

On Twitter, one gamer wrote: “Blizzard continues to struggle with messaging, p*ssing off fans by saying their best developers are working on mobile games for ALL Blizzard IP’s. Not what you want to say right after disappointing millions of fans with a tone deaf BlizzCon 2018 showcase.”

Another ex-fan of Blizzard tweeted: “@Blizzard_Ent after playing wow for a long time diablo 1-3 Starcraft 1-2 all the warcraft games overwatch and hearthstone sad to say I won’t be purchasing or playing any of them anymore the company’s shift of main talent into mobile ips shows you guys have lost your way sadly 😢”

It’s not the first time we’ve heard of a company attempting to worm its way into the mobile market with its most famous IPs.

Nintendo has previously announced it wants to create more accessible games by going mobile – but it then did so by creating mobile games of its popular IPs that are suitable for a mobile device. It didn’t try and port a whole AAA game to your iPhone…

What do you think about Blizzard games on mobile? A step in the right direction, or should they be sticking with their PC creations…?
