World of Warcraft on iPhone?


Blizzard is still thinking about if they should expand the famous game, World of Warcraft onto the iPhone. Senior producer of WOW John Lagrave had confirmed that the company looked into the mobile world as a potential candidate for development. Eventually, this hasn't been the first time that the company has mentioned bringing the MMORPG onto the iPhone, as the co-founders of Blizzard, Frank Pearce and Michael Morhaime, told that they were exploring the deep of the mobile world to IGN in December.

"Maybe we'll stumble on the great way to put WOW on the phone, maybe we won't, but we're certainly looking into it." said John Lagrave.

Lagrave also added, "The world is evolving towards that little handheld device. I'd have fun on it, that's absolutely the case. It would be foolish for any game developer to not be looking at that and...we don't think we're foolish! We just haven't solved it. What we've done with WOW on mobile devices is very simplistic: view the armory, you check your auctions; not just on mobile but also on web. When we have an epiphany, everyone will know, but for now, no epiphany!

I think that Blizzard is just trying to get more players into their game, but also profiting from this also. I also think that this is a good venture for the company, as trying something new isn't bad at all.



  1. Next thing we know, people are doing raids in buses and trains.

  2. What? That would be pretty crazy.

  3. what the, at iphone, lets try that

  4. WOW is horrible I played it before it went to crap its extremely noob friendly now a days so the long term players have no sense of accomplishment!

  5. I don't think this is going to happen.

  6. no i dont think this is happening really...
