Warcraft fans might finally have something to look forward to soon outside of WoW updates. The long-rumored WoW mobile game is finally set to be revealed at the beginning of next month, with some leaks hinting that it might not be the only WoW mobile game that is currently in the works.
Industry figure Jason Schrier has been credited as saying that there are currently two mobile games in the works based on Warcraft. The first is in the style of Clash of Clans, so it’ll almost certainly be a pseudo-RTS game where you have to build a settlement and take on enemies. For the alledged other game that is currently being worked on, Blizzard is apparently chasing a Pokemon Go style, though it’s not immediately clear what that means.
World of Warcraft Mobile Game Announcement
A mobile game based on the Warcraft series has been rumored for quite a long time, and it’s not hard to see why. Blizzard hasn’t exactly been shy about making mobile-only game announcements in the past, and with the huge popularity of WoW and Warcraft in general, a proper Warcraft game on mobile is a no-brainer.
Finally, we do know when we’re going to hear more. The official Hearthstone account has revealed that BLizzard will tell us more about one of the upcoming games during a live stream on May 3rd, 2022 at 10 am PT. It’s not 100% clear which of the alleged two games will be the one revealed, but either way, we’ll know more soon.
Warcraft Mobile Game Leak
While official details have been basically non-existent so far, we have had a few details thanks to the work of some leakers. Ian Bates, also known as The Red Shirt Guy, tweeted about information supposedly supplied by journalist Jason Schrier. The tweet talks about two different games, both based on different popular apps that are already available.
The aforementioned Clash of Clans style game seems pretty cut-and-dry, and will almost certainly follow the same formula as similar games, but with a Warcraft skin over the top. In terms of the other game, supposedly based on Pokemon Go, things are a bit less clear. It could be that the game will have you wandering the world to capture pets, or it could be closer to Niantic’s other game Ingress, having you work for the alliance or horde to capture territory in your language.
