Blizzard is reportedly making a Warcraft-themed take on Pokémon Go

By Sam Byford, The Verge

While much of the response to Diablo Immortal was less than enthusiastic, Blizzard remains optimistic about mobile gaming — and according to a report in Kotaku, has another potentially gigantic project up its sleeve. An “incubation department” at the studio is said to be working on a Warcraft mobile game that’s heavily influenced by Pokémon Go.

Lead designer Cory Stockton, also of World of Warcraft, is apparently a huge Pokémon fan, and Kotaku’s report says that many Blizzard employees play Pokémon Go competitively at the campus on a daily basis. The Warcraft project, however, is said to have “a lot more to it” than Pokémon Go and will include single-player elements.

There aren’t many details otherwise — the news was buried in a lengthy, in-depth story that otherwise focuses on the future of the Diablo franchise and its unannounced fourth major installment. “There are lots of mobile game players at Blizzard,” one source said. “There are lots of people actually excited about mobile games. The reaction inside the company to Immortal is very different than the reaction outside the company.”
