The study of video game Activision Blizzard and the Chinese company NetEase have canceled the development of a project with which they hoped to bring the universe of world of warcraft (WoW) to mobile devices.
Both companies would have been working on this video game in the last three years but, after the dissolution of the NetEase developer team in charge of creating content for the title, the decision would have been made to stop it.
As advanced by Bloomberg, based on the statements of a person close to this work, Activision Blizzard and NetEase would not have reached an agreement after reviewing the terms of their collaborationwhich has led to the cancellation of this product.

The crippled title was known internally as Neptune and was conceived as a massively multiplayer role-playing game (MMORPG) online set in the WoW universe. However, Bloomberg points out that it was focused on an extension of the video game, but rather on a spin-off of it, integrated into a different time.
This medium also anticipates that the video game developer previously canceled another project based on Warcraft, an augmented reality (AR) title “very similar” to Pokémon GO.
It is worth remembering that Blizzard Entertainment presented in early May its first video game for mobile phones set in Warcraft just a few months after announcing this job at a meeting with investors.
It is precisely expected that WoW will receive an expansion later this year, under the name of Dragonflight, which will bring new races of dragons – among them, the dracthyr – and allow players to visit and learn about the Dragon Islands.
