World of Warcraft Mobile Game to be Revealed in May

Blizzard unveils its timeline for Warcraft releases, unveiling when fans can expect to see what the World of Warcraft mobile game will look like.

World of Warcraft and Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard has been looking to get back on its feet in the last few months. After the COVID pandemic that rocked the gaming industry, and harassment allegations that resulted in a lawsuit against the company, now it is hoping to rebuild a relationship between itself, its employees and its fans. After what many termed a quiet 2021, especially where Warcraft content was concerned, Blizzard is now unveiling a roadmap for the franchise’s future.


Blizzard Head Mike Ybarra recently revealed that there would be some new additions coming to the Warcraft franchise. While many thought that this would include expansions for World of Warcraft and Hearthstone, something Ybarra hinted at that took many by surprise was the development of a Warcraft mobile game. Considering Blizzard’s previous attempt at a mobile title, Diablo: Immortal did not go down well with fans of the franchise, many were immediately anxious about the idea of a Warcraft mobile game.

Soon fans will be able to see for themselves what a Warcraft mobile title will look like, as among Blizzard’s roadmap for Warcraft releases there is a reveal date for the upcoming mobile title. So far, May 2022 is the only known date for the reveal of Warcraft mobile. Other upcoming reveals, like the next World of Warcraft and Hearthstone expansions are slated for April 19 and March 15 respectively. The next World of Warcraft expansion is highly anticipated by fans, as the “Shadowlands” expansion winds down.

The Warcraft mobile game is currently shrouded in mystery, with next to no details being released on the game. Some believe it could be an extension to the already existing World of Warcraft companion app, while others believe it could be a mobile port of an existing Warcraft title. Considering the poor reception of Warcraft 3’s remaster, this may be an opportunity for Blizzard to fix past mistakes.

It seems unlikely that fans will be getting a World of Warcraft mobile port, as the game requires too many buttons to be played viably on a mobile device. However, only time will tell what the Warcraft mobile experience will look like. Even with Blizzard’s reputation of poorly received mobile titles, it seems fans are looking forwards to seeing what the company will come up with this time. There’s also the Hearthstone and World of Warcraft expansions to keep fans waiting until the mobile game is unveiled in May.
