Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored.

Every story needs a teller. And every world needs builders. What if that could be you?

For thirty years, Blizzard has been creating universes for millions of players around the globe. This requires a diverse team of developers willing to lend their voices, to listen and to be heard. That is our mission.

Do you like survival games? Do you want to join a collaborative team of experienced developers at the early stage of a new project in a new world...and help write the next chapter in Blizzard's story?

This is your call to adventure. Will you answer it?

Survival games aren't my thing, they are usually very boring. But at least it looks like it's going to be in a brand new universe, so this might be interesting, if they can come up with a good story.

I can just speak for myself, but in case of survival games i liked Subnautica and if Blizzard, a company with a lot more ressources can work on this genre, i am very excited to see what they are going to develop to be honest!

You'd be surprised what a kickstarter-funded Russian arthouse team can come up with when it comes to survival games and characters.

Blizzard surely can do better, if they won't let WoW writers touch it, that is.

Both of these artworks are very generic. Maybe it's just very early concept art and it's going to look nothing like it.

Kinda, yeah. An elf-like person in front of Eluvian-like object surely rings some bells...

It looks like it could have been from anywhere. If I didn't know anything and someone showed it to me and told it's a new character from League of Legends, I would believe it.

And on another artwork, modern people discovering some portal to fantasy world. Reminds me of Nexus from HotS with its multiple "realms".

Judging by the fact that they're still hiring a lot of people for the early stages in a new project and there being pretty much no information at all, I'm pretty confident they haven't even made their first steps into developing anything yet. The reason they look generic is because they ARE generic: there is nothing for artwork to consist of as there is nothing to make art from to begin with. Even the artstyle is different for both images. So I don't think it's really fair to make any form of judgement yet based on those images, they probably added both just for flavour.

      We have new information coming out of a GamerBraves interview with Art director Jeremy Collins and Senior Software Engineer Andy Lim, as they explain that the game will not feature loot boxes or NFTs. Many players were concerned as the game wasn't available in Belgium, where there are strict laws aginst loot boxes and similar mechanics, but with Blizzard's clarification that may change before it is released. 
      “There’s no loot box mechanics or anything like that in the game. If you want to purchase a unit, you basically scroll down to the bottom of the store, we have various different bundle sizes, you buy a bundle coin and spend it exactly on what you want because it is already in your store and you can buy it right then. So there’s no conjecture on what you’re getting at the end of the day.”
      They have also confirmed that there will be no NFTs in the game. We didn’t expect that there would be, but it’s good to know that there won’t.

      There's plenty more information on the game in the interview, from the 5 families you can choose, the PvE focus and 70 missions, the differences between it and Clash Royal, and more, so make sure to read the whole thing over at GamerBraves.

      We have two gameplay videos to check out, featuring the new Arclight Ruble game, as we get to see it in action! First off, Towelliee has put together a video of his own experiences with the new Warcraft mobile game, as he details some features while showing off a solid chunk of gameplay as well.
      The second video, from 巴哈姆特電玩瘋 (via snailkill3r), shows off the shop, team editing and then a different mission:

      We have two unofficial statements and some minimum specs to check out for the Warcraft mobile game, as Towelliee might have some inside info on the matter. Let's start with the official information, as the minimum specs for the game are iOS (6S and up) and Android (S7 and up), as noted in the reveal.
      Towelliee talked about the release window for the game during his reveal stream, as there's nothing specific yet, but it is expected in 2022. With the Diablo: Immortal change and recent PC addition, the "is it coming to PC" question is a big one. But it seems Arclight Rumble is not getting the Immortal treatment, as Towelliee talked with Blizzard, and got some information about the mobile focus of the game and seemingly no plans for PC (clipped by Wowhead) :

      President and COO Daniel Alegre informed the community that Activision Blizzard will halt new sales in Russia, rendering players unable to renew their subscriptions.

      Team -
      Throughout the past week, we have watched the news from Ukraine and the worsening humanitarian crisis that is unfolding. Our company’s commitment is to help those impacted by this terrifying violence and to provide assistance in every way possible.
      Today, we are announcing that Activision Blizzard will be suspending new sales of and in our games in Russia while this conflict continues. We will continue to look at ways to support the Ukrainian people. I want to reassure you that the safety of our employees is our leadership team’s top priority. We are doing everything possible to assist employees, and their families, who are being directly affected by this tragedy. If you or a colleague needs support, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your manager or local HR leaders. I’d also like to remind you that our Employee Assistance Program is available to those who need emotional support during this difficult time.
      I also want to take a moment to recognize the incredible work of our teams to support the Ukrainian people. The company is matching employee donations 2:1 to organizations providing immediate relief in the region. Together we have raised over $300,000 in this effort. Next week we plan to add additional charities to choose from for consideration and also will raise the company matching limit from $1,000 to $10,000.
      I’d also like to applaud the tremendous contributions from our colleagues in Poland, where people have volunteered their time to assist Ukrainian refugees and others in need. We continue to work with them to find ways we can further assist this effort. We stand with the Ukrainian people and will provide updates on any new actions we take as this crisis continues to unfold.

      Due to the ongoing Microsoft acquisition, there was no earnings call for Q4 2021. Instead, Activision Blizzard posted a press release, where we learn about "substantial new content" planned for the Warcraft franchise in 2022, including a new mobile game.
      We summarized highlights of the press release below:
      In 2021, World of Warcraft delivered its strongest engagement and net bookings outside of a Modern expansion year in a decade.  Hearthstone's fourth-quarter net bookings grew year-over-year, driven by a steady cadence of new content. Blizzard is planning substantial new content for the Warcraft franchise in 2022, including new experiences in WoW and Hearthstone, and getting all-new mobile Warcraft content into players' hands for the first time. In the Diablo franchise, Diablo 2 Resurrected sold through more units from its September release until the year-end than any other Activision Blizzard remaster over an equivalent period. On mobile, Diablo Immortal concluded its public testing with positive feedback. Blizzard is making strong progress on its pipeline, including new experiences in Warcraft, ongoing development in Diablo and Overwatch, and an exciting new IP (most likely the recently-unveiled survival game). Activision Blizzard had 371 million monthly active users in Q4 2021. You can read the full press release here.
