Blizzard has begun working on new IP’s for their upcoming games, but will not rush any new titles as there is many of such incubating within the developer.
During Activision Blizzard’s earnings call today the president of Blizzard and co-founder Mike Morhaime began saying that the time spent by the company is devoted to supporting the already existing franchises that it possess.
Mike Morhaime reminded his audience that co-founder Allen Adham returned to the company last year and is undergoing many idea’s which Blizzard have in incubation.
“We now have multiple dedicated incubation teams that are being led by some of our most experienced game designers at Blizzard,” Morhaime said. “I should say that creating new, Blizzard-quality games on any platform will take time. And as we’ve shown in the past, we’re not going to release any games that we don’t feel live up to our expectations or those of our players.”
“In terms of new IP, our pipeline is in a better position than ever before in our history. we’re committed to incubating new initiatives,” Morhaime said
“When we do bring new experiences to current or new platforms for new and existing IPs, they’re going to be ideas that are our teams are passionate about and that we think there is a large audience for.” said Morhaime
Blizzard rarely disappoints with a new release so even if they have to take some time to create a new big selling AAA tittle such as Overwatch with over 30 million players it will be worth the wait. PC gamers would be no doubt excited for the upcoming news surrounding this developer.
