Blizzard Makes a Job Posting for a Mobile MMORTS

Yep, we’re back to the job posting-related rumor mill once again. This time we’re mulling over the possibilities of a Blizzard mobile MMORTS as the company has listed an opening for the unannounced and untitled project.

The job posting is for a Senior Client Engineer, specifically someone who possesses “an unwavering passion for mobile development and solving engineering problems unique to mobile app environments” according to the posting. The only other clues about this MMORTS involve familiarity with the Unity engine and understanding of 3D graphics and shaders.

It’s unclear whether this project is in any way associated with a job posting for an in-development Warcraft mobile game, though the job posting’s lack of mention of the Warcraft IP or any existing IP seems to suggest otherwise.

Our Thoughts

A mobile version of Warcraft or StarCraft would certainly be the “easy way out”, but it’s also not entirely beyond the pale for Blizzard to come up with an entirely new IP specifically for this MMORTS. Either way, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for any additional developments. We’d love to hear your opinions on this news: what do you think this new game could be?
