I really hope they do. I haven't found an iOS game that I really like yet.

I was a big fan of Blizzard and WoW, but that has diminshed in the last year or so. My guess is that people are finaly getting bored with WoW and Blizzard's NOI is going to drop signifigantly in the next 2 years. This will result in 2 options: option 1 dedicate a large portion of their development to mobile gamming, or option 2 have no mobile gaming development at all. A savy play would be to push for mobile gamming since it looks like that is on the rise lately. But my guess is that we will never see a blizzard mobile game.

Definitely some good thoughts, Parker. Personally, I'm not even going to try predicting where Blizzard is going in the next few years. I think you're right about WoW. The buzz has really died off, and I don't think the Cataclysm launch had as big of an impact as they hoped. 

I think Blizzard is a company in flux right now, so predictions are tough. According to Blizz history I'd say you're right: there's almost no chance they'd go mobile. That said, Blizzard is a company with huge cash reserves and resources to use however they please. They're going to have to try new things to stay current, and I wouldn't put an experiment with Lost Vikings by them.
