Incubation is a department/development team at Blizzard Entertainment.


Reportedly, Incubation was founded in recognisation of Blizzard's development cycles. Some developers within the company had spent up to ten years on a single game, which led some to crave smaller, shorter games.

The group was founded c. 2016, and is led by Allen Adham. Inspiration was taken from Hearthstone, with Incubation intended to cultivate new projects within Blizzard. Currently, the group is working on Diablo Immortal alongside NetEase,[1] and various other mobile games[2] across Blizzard's existing IPs.[3]
