A new Warcraft mobile game is set to be revealed next Tuesday, May 3, at 10 AM PDT (19:00 CEST). While I’m sure that not all of you are fans of mobile games (even though Hearthstone is a mobile game, it also has a PC client and many of you probably play exclusively on that platform), I think that it’s going to be pretty interesting, I really wonder what it’s going to be.
One thing to keep in mind is that many of the Hearthstone devs have left Team 5 and moved to another project at Blizzard over the years – starting with Mike Donais and Peter Whalen over two years ago. The most recent move was Hearthstone’s game director – Ben Lee, who announced it just a couple of months ago. And I have some suspicions that this mobile Warcraft game might be that project. If yes, then I wonder what the Hearthstone designers have prepared for us. If not, it means that there’s yet another secret project at Blizzard.
Anyway, I’ll probably cover the game’s reveal here – and if it will be interesting enough, I might write about it every now and then. Let’s just hope it’s not some P2W gacha cash grab.
The Warcraft® universe continues to capture imaginations across the globe with enlightening experiences and immersive gameplay, that are the foundation for World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. We are happy to present a new mobile game for the heroes of Azeroth looking to play on the go, and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.
