Ah World of Warcraft. The number one MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) is also likely the number one reason why gamers aged 12 – 60 don’t see much sunlight. But that may not be the case for long.

Eurogamer recently spoke with WoW’s senior producer John Lagrave about the possibility of Blizzard bringing the popular game to the iOS platform. And his comments are actually a lot more positive than you’d think…

“We won’t do it until we think it’s decent. But it’s interesting, and the world is evolving towards that little handheld device — I’d have fun on it, that’s absolutely the case. It would be foolish for any game developer to not be looking at that, and we’re not – we don’t think – foolish! Maybe we’ll stumble on the great way to put WoW on the [i]Phone – maybe we won’t, but we’re certainly looking into it…What we’ve done [so far] with WoW on mobile devices is very simplistic: view the armory, check your auctions [manage guilds]… When we have an epiphany, everyone will know. But for now, no epiphany!”

Sure, that’s not really much to go on. But it’s definitely better than a “no, we have no plans to bring WoW to mobile devices” response. Especially since we’ve been hearing whispers about an iOS flavored WoW title for a few years now.

What do you think? Would you play WoW on your iPhone or iPad?


  • Please dont i would rather have Runescape go mobile than this, it just wouldn’t work with this game even runescape wouldn’t work. I dont understand why all these developers are making these advanced iOS games that you pretty much NEED a iPad for because its impossible to play on a iPhone MineCraft PE for example even though its simple its just too technical for the iPhone screen. All i want from games is something simple fun and looks good.

    • I agree games like Words with friends and draw something are really enough to keep me entertained on my phone

    You can play wow on your iPad now. Just use a program like splashtop and wow plays pretty good. Dont try anything hard like a dungeon, but just moving around and stuff like that works. Other than that. I don’t think wow would be good on a mobile device. Maybe a iPad, but that’s as small as I would go.

    Maybe in another iDevice in the future; but right now, WoW won’t work in the iPhones and iPads that we have now.

    wow is dying and already dead for many
    this new kung fu panda and free diablo 3 just shows how desperate blizz is to save the game

    it was once great but now it is so easy and automatic mentally slow people can play

  • This is both awesome and terrifying at the same time. First, its almost completely obvious that 4G LTE is going to be required to use WW outside of a wifi hotspot. Second, WW is most likely going to only work on iPhone 4+ models.

    I say its awesome because a game such as this with a seamless experience across PC/Mac and iOS would be a dream come true and will open up same experiences across platforms for other franchises.

    This is terrifying because when I had a subscription to WW, I had absolutely no life – given this was only for 4 months, but for those 4 months the only thing I did in my free time was play WW.

  • I really hope they do. I always play this game on my Mac 🙂

  • No. Too many key binds for a real player.


    i would love to have WoW on my ipad!!
