A new job posting from Blizzard for a FX Artist has been discovered recently and it appears to indicate a mobile game based on the World of Warcraft franchise. The posting states that the company is looking for an artist to help create “an unannounced project for mobile.” That at least hints that the Blizzard is working on another mobile app, but the main clue is in the list of requirements. Here is states that the it is preferred if the candidate has a “passion for creating imagery synonymous with the Warcraft IP.”
Despite most theories pointing towards a mobile app for StarCraft or Overwatch (as amazingly cool as either would be), it seems Blizzard is focused on the WoW franchise for now. More information on this might be provided at Blizzcon this November, but it is likely far too early in the development process.
Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see what comes of this unannounced project. Perhaps we will finally get the Battle Pets mobile app that Nerd Much’s own Bobby Bernstein has wanted since last year. Hopefully, it will also not look too much like the many fantasy Pokémon knock offs out there in the mobile stores.
