Blizzard is one of the world’s most popular game development studios today after releasing several hits titles like Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft, and Overwatch.
However, most of Blizzard’s games have primarily been on desktop PCs and not so much on mobile.
As of today, a new report has surfaced, stating that Blizzard could secretly be working on an Overwatch mobile game.
Blizzard is hiring “Product Managers” for “Mobile Projects”
The news broke when Dexerto spotted new job listing at Blizzard for a “Product Manager” role under the “Mobile Projects” department.
The role also lists “Overwatch” alongside a host of other Blizzard titles that the new hire will be working on as part of the role.
The position, which will be based out of Blizzard’s Irvine, California headquarters, states that candidates “will be working on multiple titles: Diablo, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and many more fantastic games.”
What Blizzard’s Overwatch Mobile Game could be
Overwatch was one of Blizzard’s most popular first person shooter (FPS) multiplayer games when it was released back in 2016.
Today, it is ranked one of the top game titles included in esports tournaments, with prize pools skyrocketting each year up to the “millions”.
Taking that into consideration, it appears that Blizzard is keen on replicating Overwatch’s success in the mobile space — something the company should have done a lot sooner seeing rivals PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile both have had massive success.
No announcements for Overwatch Mobile yet
Despite the findings, no official announcements have been made by the company on what the game will entail or its expected release dates.
Some even speculate that the role could be a possible development of the Overwatch 2 sequel instead of a mobile version, although a spinoff mobile/tablet version is also highly likely.
Until then, mobile gaming fans will likely have to wait, or focus on the company’s highly anticipated Diablo Immortal.
