Blizzard Has “More Games in Development Right Now” Than Ever Before

Diablo and Starcraft developer Blizzard may be set to make new waves in the coming years, with seemingly plenty of new projects on the way.

Speaking to Forbes recently, company president J. Allen Brack said that the team has “more games in development right now than we’ve ever had in Blizzard’s history. That includes core game genres on core platforms like PC and console, in addition to mobile initiatives.”

However, Brack did not go into detail about what those projects might be.

Nevertheless, one is the mobile Diablo spin-off Diablo Immortal, while the team also has other projects from that franchise—including a fourth mainline entry—in the works. Another is Warcraft III: Reforged, a remaster of the strategy classic that is set to release later this year.

As for whether the company has any new IPs in production, Brack said that the creation of entirely new content is secondary to the drive to create good games:

“In the end, the most important thing to us is to create something that’s great. A great game experience can happen within a new IP, and it can happen within a longtime favorite. That’s going to continue to be our goal, more than creating a new IP just for its own sake.”

One thing that does emerge late in the interview is that Blizzard does not seem to currently be looking at the VR space. “We’re not the first company that’s going to make an awesome VR game. We’re going to learn the lessons from other VR titles, and one day VR is going to become a thing, I believe, and then we’ll decide, hey, this is the right game for that platform, for that experience, that we want to give people,” said Brack.
