World of Warcraft no longer coming to mobile – here’s why

If you were waiting for the release of World of Warcraft on mobile, there is some terrible news from you.

The game, which was co-developed by Blizzard and Chinese tech giant NetEase Games, has reportedly been scrapped.

A Bloomberg report states that the two companies were at crossroads over some of the financial terms of the deal. This ultimately led to the cancellation of World of Warcraft Mobile.

World of Warcraft Mobile was in development for over three years. Codenamed Neptune, the game was set in the same universe, albeit at a different time period.

Now, fans will no longer be able to see the World of Warcraft universe in a different timeline.

The news about its cancellation comes as a surprise considering the time that the game has been in development and the recent success of Diablo Immortal.

Three years is a long time for a mobile game’s development. It’s likely that the game was in a later stage of development when this news struck.

Additionally, Diablo Immortal, which was released over a month back, has been a huge financial success in spite of criticisms surrounding the game’s microtransactions.

Thus, it’s surprising to not see Blizzard and NetEase work out their differences and get a slice of the sizable revenue a mobile version of World of Warcraft is sure to bring.

The project may have been scrapped but fans will be hoping to see World of Warcraft mobile in the future. It’s up to Blizzard and NetEase to make it happen now.
