There seems to be a possibility that an iOS version of World of Warcraft may be coming in the future. This information comes out of an interview with Senior WoW Developer, John Lagrave, at Blizzard.
It’s by no means a done deal, says Lagrave, speaking to Eurogamer,
“Here’s your platform, you’ve got to put an interface, what do you do? So yes we have [looked into mobile] and we always are. 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.”
As we’ve all come to expect from Blizzard, they won’t release an iOS port until they’re confident it meets the same quality and upholds their reputation,
“We won’t do it until we think it’s decent…When we have an epiphany, everyone will know…but for now, no epiphany!”
There are Blizzard apps currently on the App Store, one specifically for World of Warcraft. The World of Warcraft Mobile Armory allows players to access stats, calculate talents, access the Auction House, and more. Blizzard also has a mobile authenticator app to help protect accounts.
Is World of Warcraft what Blizzard should really be focusing on for an iOS port? There are plenty of great RTS games on the App Store, but imagine a Starcraft or Warcraft port to iOS.
