While the response for Diablo Immortal that was announced during BlizzCon 2018 was not the best, it seems that Blizzard is not giving up on the idea of going mobile. A Kotaku report details, among other things, that a Warcraft title based on the Pokémon Go mechanics is in the works.
According to sources to Kotaku, a lot of Blizzard’s developers love the Niantic game, so it’s only natural that the next step was to make a game that’s similar in nature. Just based on the Warcraft lore, specifically.
While it’s no surprise that Blizzard’s higher-ups would think that it’s a good idea, it just so happens that lead designer Cory Stockton is a fan of Pokémon Go. On top of that, he used to be part of the World of Warcraft team.
The game was described as having a lot more depth than the game it’s drawing inspiration from. It will also come with single-player mechanics, although what they are exactly was not described.
Unfortunately, that’s about all the details regarding the Warcraft-themed Pokémon Go. Meaning that we’ll probably have to wait for an official announcement from Blizzard.
