100 Staff Laid Off As Blizzard Cancels Mobile World Of Warcraft Game

NetEase has disbanded the team working on a canceled mobile World of Warcraft game, a new report confirms. Despite the massive success of Diablo Immortal, a conflict over terms has resulted in Activision Blizzard and NetEase scrapping what could have been an equally lucrative mobile title.

According to sources speaking with Bloomberg, the game was codenamed Neptune and would have been an MMORPG set in the World of Warcraft universe. Although not a direct translation of the ongoing PC game, sources described it as a spinoff set during a different time period in the WoW universe.
