A new report in Bloomberg (opens in new tab) says that Blizzard and NetEase have canceled a World of Warcraft spinoff after three years of development. The game was being developed by NetEase, China’s second-largest games company after Tencent, which co-developed Diablo Immortal

According to the report, the spinoff was internally referred to as Neptune, and was intended to be a mobile World of Warcraft MMO set in a different time period to the main game. NetEase apparently had a team of over 100 people working on the title. It has reportedly been disbanded, with only some of those retaining roles at the company.
