World of Warcraft Coming to An iOS Device Near You... Soon?
Good news for World of War fans: WoW's senior producer John Lagrave recently had a quick chat with Eurogamer about the gaming industry and hinted at putting out a mobile version of the popular MMORPG. At the moment, Blizzard’s only WoW app is called Mobile Armory, and it only allows users to view a character’s armor and manage auctions.
BGR - “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,” Lagrave said. “We won’t do it until we think it’s decent. But it’s interesting and the world is evolving towards [the iPhone]. It would be foolish for any game developer to not be looking at that.” Having a large game such as WoW ported to a touch-based mobile device wouldn’t come without its fair share of problems. As Gameloft’s Order & Chaos has shown, however, MMORPGs are definitely doable on portable devices. ”
It is hardly an exaggeration to say that the ubiquitous smartphone and tablet form factors are fast becoming the favored tool for mobile gaming. On the Android frontier, devices are quickly adopting the quad-core processors and other upgraded hardware specs so all we have to say is: why not Android too?
