In addition to the already published Diablo Immortalit seems that Blizzard Entertainment and NetEase were collaborating on the development of a mobile spin-off of Warcrafthowever the American company would have decided to delete the project due to financial differences with the Chinese reality. We learn about it thanks to a published report on Bloomberg’s columns.
From the press rumors we discover that the video game would have been in the works for a long period, even three years, and due to the cancellation, NetEase would have dismantled the team of a hundred developers. Some of them would have been internally transferred to other projects, while others appear to have been fired.
Note that this spin-off has nothing to do with that Warcraft Arclight Rumble announced a few months ago. The project codenamed Neptune under development at NetEase should have followed the path traced by World of Warcraft, therefore it would have been a free-to-play MMORPG for mobile devices. For the moment both Blizzard and NetEase are silent on the mattertherefore we invite you to take what has just been reported with the proverbial springs.
