Blizzard still keen on World of Warcraft for iPhone

by on20 March 2012


But no epiphany to speak of yet

Although something like this was unimaginable even a few years back, Blizzard’s senior WoW producer John Lagrave said that the company has still not given up on delivering its game World of Warcraft to the jolly appletons.

The iOS ecosystem currently offers a WoW Mobile Armory application that lets players view character sheets, use the Auction House and manage guilds. Naturally, this is a mere fragment of the game, but the company is thankfully still far from over.

Lagrave said that developing for mobile is very hard but that the company is always looking into it. He said “Maybe we'll stumble on the great way to put WOW on the phone - maybe we won't, but we're certainly looking into it.”

He said that it would be foolish for any game dev to think handheld but stressed that Blizzard won’t do it until it’s decent. He said that when they get an epiphany, everyone will know "But for now, no epiphany!"
