Activision Blizzard aims to bring all gaming franchises to mobile platforms
Publisher Activision Blizzard intends to engage in the development of the mobile direction seriously. Writes about this Gamasutra. According to COO Daniel Alegre, the company plans to move all of its franchises to mobile platforms.
The reason was the success of Call of Duty: Mobile, launched in 2019. The number of players exceeded 500 million people, who spent more than $ 1 billion on the project. The results inspired Activision Blizzard and made them ” believe in the future of this platform .”
“We really want all of our franchises to be mobile. There are several ways to implement this idea: for example, a separate game may come out on them, which will become an addition to the existing series. It is unacceptable for the community and us not to release our games on these platforms, ”said Alegre.
The leader clarified that Diablo Immortal and several projects in the Warcraft universe are currently being developed. In addition, Activision Blizzard is working on several unannounced games.
Diablo Immortal was presented at BlizzCon 2018. After that, the developers faced a wave of criticism, and one of the visitors to the exhibition called the idea ” an April Fool’s joke .” Despite this, the company continued to develop the project and stated that the testers were ” very impressed with the game .” The release date has not yet been announced.
