How often with a studio like Blizzard, a line in a job ad can create the controversy, as here the idea of having a portage of the game Overwatch or Ow 2 on mobile. Thus, the studio mentioned, in an offer of a mobile product manager post published on its site (source in English), which the position may lead to the employee to work on several titles of the company including Overwatch. From there, rumors were spread over the canvas…
Overwatch in mobile version?
For the moment, no official element seems to indicate the presence of a mobile version for Overwatch. If titles like Call of Duty Mobile or PUBG Mobile are real successes around the world, a mobile port would be an important step for a studio like Blizzard.
However, the Activision Blizzard group is well-placed to analyze the importance of the mobile market since its mobile division (via King) is strong of 245 million players (according to the numbers ATV MAU current 2021) around the world. In addition, Blizzard has already tried the mobile adventure via the Diablo Franchise with the now very famous Immortal Diablo. Note that the mobile title should be published by the first half of the year 2022.
Therefore, if the job offer is probably not directly linked to a current project on OW, it is likely that the group considers a porting of its main titles on mobile in the future. In the meantime, we would prefer to have more information about Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV and especially on their release date.
