Blizzard Working On Mobile Games?
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzplanet recently posted about Blizzard Entertainment's formation of a new Mobile Wireless Development Department. The post speculates on the types of game related software the company might be developing and the types of mobile devices they might support.

Blizzard is hiring personnel for a new Mobile Wireless Development Department to work on wireless-related projects. It is unknown whether these positions will work on a new feature for the World of Warcraft MMORPG, or if the department is aimed to new mobile games for Apple iPhone, and other mobile devices. The potential of a Blizzard Mobile Department is unlimited. Just take a look at the features of Apple iPhone.

- Imagine checking your in-game mailbox from your iPhone, browsing the Auction House to place or buy items, transmuting or creating Primal Mooncloth remotely from your wireless device.

- Few years ago, Blizzard released the Gameboy Advance games: Lost Vikings, Blackthorne and Rock'n Roll Racing during the 10th Anniversary of their Arcade Games. It would make sense to create new and former IPs for the new Mobile Wireless devices.

- If Blizzard considered E-Sport support for Starcraft 2, Starcraft: Ghost and Diablo 3, or MMORPGs -- imagine watching E-Sport tournament matches directly into your iPhone. Browsing Ladder stats.
