Could Warcraft be making its way to phones?

According to recent job postings on the Blizzard Entertainment career site, the studio behind Warcraft, Overwatch and Hearthstone is currently working on an unannounced MMO RTS for mobile devices.

While the job postings don't give a whole lot away as to the nature of the game itself, they do reveal that the project is based in the Unity game engine and is in development for both iOS and Android devices. Given its pitch as an MMO RTS, we can also expect that it'll draw from Blizzard's experience with Starcraft and Warcraft, potentially leveraging one or both of those universes for its narrative setting.

After the massive success of Hearthstone, it's no surprise that Blizzard is taking more of an interest in the mobile side of game development. And while the fruits of this project are likely a ways off, it's a safe bet that whatever Blizzard is cooking up will be worth the wait.

In other mobile gaming news, Capcom's Puzzle Fighter mobile game is available to download for free right now.
