    Blizzard is Considering Porting Starcraft and Other Titles to Mobile


    For any of you folks who view gaming on PCs fondly (either currently or in the past), this latest news might be a nice bit of nostalgia. According to Blizzard president and co-founder Michael Morhaime, senior vice president and co-founder Frank Pearce, and senior vice president Chris Metzen, the gaming company is considering porting their Starcraft franchise to the Mobile world.

    So far, Blizzard's greatest (and only) success on the mobile platform is the Hearthstone collectible digital card game for Android and iOS. Beyond their focus on that product the executives shared they are not working on any new IP for mobile, but they are toying around with the idea of porting older Blizzard titles. Their first example was the ultra-successful Starcraft RTS.

    They had a great deal more to say during the session, including that the company does not intend to focus on VR for some time. Feel free to check out more at the source link below.

    Who else thinks Starcraft, Diablo or Warcraft would be awesome on a tablet or smartphone?

    It's funny, I was talking to a friend the other day about the "old times" of computers and the game Wing Commander came up. I remember when you couldn't run it on many computers at the time because you really needed at least a 486 with at least a 40mb(megaByte) hard drive and recommended at least 1mB(megaByte) of RAM to be able to run it without waiting for reloads during game play.

    Now, we have more advanced and bigger games on our cell phones.
