from Claus Ludewig
The developer studio Activision Blizzard is said to have discontinued the mobile game Warcraft Mobile.

As part of the digital Blizzcon 2021, Activision-Blizzard announced a remaster of Diablo 2 and the first expansion for Word of Warcraft: Classic.

Conflict between Chinese publisher and Blizzard?

Recently, Activision-Blizzard has developed many games for iPhones and Android devices. In May, Warcraft Arclight Rumble, an action-strategy game, was announced, before the controversial Diablo Immortal has been available since June. Although it raises questions when you can level up a character for 100,000 US dollars, Diablo Immortal seems to be worth it from a purely economic point of view. Just a few weeks after the release, Blizzard is said to have generated sales of 24 million US dollars.

In view of these numbers, it initially seems incomprehensible why a new WoW game for smartphones should not appear. However, the new mobile World of Warcraft developed in a collaboration between Blizzard and the Chinese publisher Netease. The development for the WoW game has been going on for three years, but now there is said to be a conflict in terms of financing. Blizzard games like Hearthstone or Diablo Immortal have already emerged from the partnership.
