Blizzard’s Mobile WARCRAFT Spin-Off Is Reportedly Heavily Influenced By POKÉMON GO

Many players still can't believe that Diablo Immortal was the only major title unveiled at BlizzCon 2018, and they better get ready to take another hit, as a new WarCraft game may be influenced by Pokémon Go...

One would think that after the Diablo: Immortal debacle Blizzard would rethink their approach to their biggest brands, but it looks like this mobile train is not stopping anytime soon. While Diablo Immortal is clearly influence by many Diablo rip-offs that make a ton of money in China, Blizzard has reportedly decided to take a look at Pokémon Go and is using that game's mechanics to build a new WarCraft.

Blizzard has officially announced that WarCraft 4 is not happening anytime soon, but as the company is instead working on a "Warcraft version of Pokémon Go, which is in development for smartphones now. Surely it occurred to the decision-makers at Blizzard that this Warcraft spinoff could be a massive revenue generator, but the game is also in production because lead designer Cory Stockton (formerly of World of Warcraft) is a huge fan of Pokémon," as pointed out by Kotaku's Jason Schreier.

According to Schreier, the mobile version of WarCraft is working right now and people who have played it say it’s also got a lot more to it than Pokémon Go, including some single-player mechanics. Unfortunately, that's all we’ve got for now, but the premise of Pokémon Go-ish adventures set in the Warcraft universe sounds better than whatever Diablo Immortal is actually trying to be. Last but not least, let's not forget that players will also have a chance to check out WarCraft III: Reforged next year.
