Blizzard Has a Job Listing Hinting at a Mobile RPG

Blizzard has posted a new job opening on their site that appears to be aiming for someone with experience in mobile gaming creation who has a passion for RPG work. So, by logic, everyone is guessing that Blizzard is making a mobile RPG title. We’ve posted some of the details below for you to read over, in case you feel like that would be a good fit and a nice career change. No word as to whether or not the game would be working with an IP that the company has already made or if they’re creating something new from scratch. But considering the success games like Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and other JRPG titles that have been transformed into mobile titles, now would be the best time for Blizzard to get in on the ride.
